Espy Farms


 
 


And a video I made driving out by this farm.


 
Until I am able to do a story about the Espy/Griffin Gin, I will add this anecdote here.  I can't remember who e-mailed me this. 
Mr Major and Miss Edith--I worked at Espy/Griffin Gin during cotton picking season and he would come by everyday and check on us. Mr Fred Griffin was kinda laid back and during slack times we would sit down, but for some reason we always got up and started sweeping when we saw Mr Major coming. He would say "Fred, I don't know about you, but I can't pay them for sitting around"
