VIDEO: Going Organic

"It's a lot like farming in 1950, just the cabs of the tractors are nicer." That's how Shawn Peebles of Peebles Organic Farm describes his business. In this video, we take a look at the Peebles operation – which includes land in Woodruff, White and Prairie counties – and listen as Peebles describes the path he and wife Kelly have taken from conventional farming to raising organic crops such as green beans, purple-hull peas, sweet potatoes and edamame for a growing U.S. market.
