Watermelon Farmer
Brothers Jerry and Terry Cooper say that their watermelons are some of the sweetest in the country. These Alabama farmers will bring in hundreds of the bright green melons. Once harvested the melons will make their way to the supermarket, farmers market or just be sold right off the farm wagon fresh from the field.

The Coopers say, however, that they’ve seen the need to diversify the crops on their farm because of a shortage of farm labor to work the land. Because of that, the Coopers have started planting corn, soybeans or other crops that can be harvested by machine.
