WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) -- Woodrow Gunn is a retired construction worker turned business owner.
"When I passed 65 years old I started selling produce, and I've been doing it for the last five or six years," said Gunn.
After he retired, his friend inspired him to sell the greens that he grows on his land.
He says not only does it help the people in the community, but it also helps him to keep a steady income.
Gunn said he understands that money is low for some families due to the pandemic, which is why he sells large amounts for a lower price.
"Since the virus came, I lowered my prices, and now everybody is eating greens."
He's even helping those in need.
"Somebody comes here and doesn't have a lot of money. I say hey, look here you're going to leave with some greens," said Gunn.
However, he says since the start of the pandemic, the business has slowed down, but he says that does not stop him from showing up.
"Use the same technique as fishing. You've got to keep on fishing because someday the fish is going to bite," said Gunn.
For his traveling business, Gunn says the key to success is finding the right place at the right time.
"Getting the right location, you can see across the street what kind of building is over there. When people come from over there, they might not be able to go home and do a lot of cooking.
But they can look over here and say, well, I just left the liquor store I'm going to get some greens for my grand momma," said Gunn.
