NASCAR Driver vs. Family Farmer

get more from BRO

Former Daytona 500 champion Ernie Irvan is suing his neighbor, a family farmer, over too much noise and dust. Located on Wadmalaw Island, S.C., Ambrose Family Farm has been a popular source of local produce for nearby Charleston foodies since it opened 35 years ago. Irvan moved next door three years ago, and he’s miffed about the farm’s traffic. Ambrose is a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm, so patrons pay a regular fee and then come by to pick up their share of the season’s fruits and vegetables. Ambrose also runs a u-pick berry operation in the spring, which he said is essential to keeping the farm in business. Charleston locavores have organized a “Save Ambrose Farm” page on Facebook to help raise legal funds for the family.
