On their family farm off Mt. Vernon Road, brothers Jerry Prows and Steven Prows are preparing for this year’s tobacco crop.
Tobacco farmers in Harrison County for over 25 years, the Prows brothers know this year will be different.
Their tobacco crop will only be half.
There will be no contract.
And, there will be no guarantees.
The family found out two weeks ago that its contract with Universal Leaf Tobacco Company has been cut.
