Epic Garlic Fight Gets TV Documentary, Ashland Visit


Stanley Crawford is best known as a writer, with several published novels and non-fiction works as well.  But he's also a garlic farmer in New Mexico, and has learned a few things about the business of agriculture and its practitioners.  It certainly has some highs and lows, as you may have heard. 

For Crawford the lows include trying to keep American duties on imported Chinese garlic, to keep the cheap garlic from flooding the market and swamping farmers like him.  Would YOU want to take on the People's Republic in a legal battle? 

Crawford tells the story in a book and in the Netflix series "Rotten."  He visits Southern Oregon University tonight (November 13th) and visits the studio in advance.
