A well-known family farm near and dear to the hearts of Jones Countians is featured on a podcast that’s hosted by Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Andy Gipson.
Jo Lynn Mitchell of Mitchell Family Farms in Collins is among the people highlighted in Episode 10 of the Genuine MS Podcast. The episode, “Tourists Flock to the Farm, explores the Mississippi agritourism industry. Michael May and Mikayla May of Lazy Acres in Chunky and Neal Williams of Williams Family Farm in Wiggins are also included.
“Agritourism is an important and growing sector of agriculture in Mississippi,” Gipson said. “Visiting a farm or staying on one for a weekend getaway can be fun, entertaining and educational. There is always something new to learn about where our food and other agricultural products come from.”
