You know Tennessee Crossroads has traveled throughout the state for years now and we've discovered an abundance of traditional farms everywhere. We've been from dairy, horse, and poultry to cotton, corn, tobacco, beans and so much more. Well, that is, until Ken Wilshire found a farm in Paris, TN where they are growing a sweet family business that's guaranteed to satisfy our sweet tooth.
Ken Wilshire joined the Tennessee Crossroads in 2008 with a desire to tell stories about people who have found their passions in life and who would otherwise go unrecognized for their contributions to their community. Ken began his career at WREG-TV in Memphis, writing, producing and editing news stories, features and documentaries. After leaving Channel 3 he joined Fed Ex in their communications department as a writer/producer and was promoted to the department manager. Ken spent almost 25 years in operations management at FedEx and other Fortune 500 companies.
