TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- The sight of farm land is nothing new in Mississippi, right?

How about the transformation of a large piece of farm land into something new?

That's exactly what's happened on some land now under the care of Tupelo farmer Will Reed.

Four years ago, Reed started up a Native Son Farm where only naturally grown vegetables are made available to the public.

Now, he's branched out from his Mount Vernon Road operation to a section of land on Lumpkin Avenue in west Tupelo.

Previously, soybeans were grown there.

Now, it's all natural.

"In just a few short months. We've turned it into a very productive certified naturally-grown vegetable farm which is going to feed more than 200 families in the Tupelo community," Will Reed said.

Reed's vegetables are sold to the public weekdays at his Mount Vernon Road operation Monday through Friday from 2 until 6 p.m.

He also started a Certified Supported Agriculture operation where anyone who wants to invest in the operation receives fresh vegetables grown on the farm.
