HomeGrown 01/11/09 - A Visit to Caudill Seed

Louisville’s Caudill Seed Company is the homegrown subject of HomeGrown this week. Bob and Jeneen visit the West Main Street company, little known to many locals, that actually grows and blends seeds for customers all over the world, and is one of the largest producers of organic and natural foods in North America. The two men interviewed are Del Thacker, chief operating officer for Caudill’s “Whole Alternatives” division, and Joe Lyons, who manages its “Plant Wise” division.Downloadable MP3
