A family in Anderson County is keeping up tradition with tobacco farming. Walter and Mary Warford, their son, Mark, and his wife and children all play a role in raising tobacco.
Mark Warford said his father has raised tobacco for as long as he remembers.
"I've been raising it since I was 15," he said.
"We've always done it, that's just the way it is."
The Warfords farm about 4 acres of land, Mark Warford said. His parents; his sons, Luke and Allen; his daughters, Amanda and Mary Ann; and his wife, Leann, all play a role, he said.
