For today's show, we're heading out to Bradford Family Farm, where South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers visited today to check on their newest project. Nat Bradford is one of just 20 farmers in the state who received permits to grow the state's first industrial hemp for research. The commissioner is making the rounds and checking out what those farmers have been able to do so far for this pilot program.
