Katherine Wise grew up on a farm in Mississippi that’s been in the family for more than 90 years. As a young teenager, she didn’t appreciate the history surrounding her. In fact, she tried every excuse she could think of to get out of helping her brother with produce in the summer. But to her, and her family’s surprise, she’s now back on the farm, managing more and more of the operation each year.
Today the Wise family raises produce, including tomatoes and sweet corn. They also host thousands of visitors who enjoy their corn maze and pumpkin patch each fall. But just like Katherine, the farm has changed a lot over the years.
