B&S Farm Visit

The Homegrown Alabama crew took a trip to B&S Farms in Brent, Alabama this past Sunday. Smokey Smith and his son Gary farm 15 acres by themselves, except for the three or four days per year when the beans need a’pickin’. The farm’s pretty impressive!

These guys grow tomatoes, beans, peas, squash, potatoes, okra, cabbage, lettuce, peppers, eggplants, carrots, collards, onions, and a slew of other veggies that I can’t seem to remember right now. The list is a long one.
