SPW On RFD-TV: Flavor 1st Devotion To Farming And Tradition Shines Through


In 1798, James Noble Johnson planted his first crop in the fertile mountain valleys of North Carolina. Today, the eighth generation of Johnsons is still working that same land — and a whole lot more, with farming operations in five states –as Flavor 1st Growers and Packers, headquartered in Mills River, NC.

If you’re in the eastern half of the United States and ate a vegetable today, there’s a very good chance Kirby Johnson had a hand in growing it, including the well-known Tasti-Lee tomato.

We caught up with the outspoken Kirby on a recent visit to North Carolina for a feature that first appeared on the RFD-TV Network.
