A true American farmer — Billy Goss

Billy Goss is a true American farmer — a man who looks like he works the ground. The stamp of toil, sun, diesel and dust have toughened Goss, Goss Farms, Clarksdale, Miss., and given him the appearance of a man who belongs to the land. “There was never a time I can remember that I didn’t know I was going to be a farmer. Even as a little boy, I only wanted to farm.”
