Local newspapers reported that
many farmers were disappointed at
the low bids. Many have decided,
in the upcoming season, to grow
other crops instead.
The first auction of the season
brought an average bid of 68 cents
a pound a few weeks ago.
Hess had originally hoped to
schedule auctions three days per
Hess noted, however, there will

He said tobacco will be accepted
by appointment only beginning
Jan. 13. Call (717) 626-6970orthc
