  • 74-year-old farmer puts out 6,000 pounds of leaf

    James Warren has been a part of burley tobacco farm production since before he was a teenager.

    Now, at 74 years old, he still raises 6,000 pounds of the leaf on his farm off Bennett Road, but he believes the tobacco companies will eventually snuff out small farm production in deference to the mega-crop producers, some of whom grow hundreds of thousands of pounds per year.

    “They’re docking us a nickel a bale when we sell our tobacco in small bales,” Warren said. “The bigger bales mean less labor at the receiving station.”

    Summer Garris’s Twenty-first Century Publishing class is producing a LaRue County High School online magazine that reports on a variety of student interests.
