Wake County, North Carolina -- Griffen Todd, a third-generation farmer, grows tobacco and soybeans and raises hogs. "I grew up on a farm and have been farming all my life. I believe the man upstairs looked over this farm and my family. The hardest part of farming here has been working with people who don't want to see you succeed." His son, Griffen Jr., is taking over the farm.
