This article was in a local paper this morning. Here in flue cured tobacco country the amount grown has decreased rapidly over the last few years. Bulk barns and specialized tobacco equipment rust away. We grew our last crop in 2004 , the year the buyout was approved. We sold carryover 2004 crop in 2005 for half of what it brought in 2004 sales. I am happy to see this farmer's upbeat spirit. I also wonder what businesses and lifestyles will be lost in post virus times.

Thanks for the article. I know several young men who share his attitude about tobacco farming.
