Tobacco farming alive and well in Fox Creek

By BEN CARLSON

Christopher Conway still had a ways to go.
The Anderson County native, his wife, dad, mom and a pair of helpers were just beginning their annual ritual of planting tobacco plants on the Lee Steelman Farm in Fox Creek, but had only scratched the surface as of Saturday afternoon.
Conway, his wife Terriana, Dudley Gash and Brennan Stevens had about 20 rows of plants in the ground, but still had the better part of 30 acres left to go.
By the time they’re done, they will have planted nearly a quarter of a million plants, most of which Conway started from seed.
