How does a barber who comes to Catawba County with just the shirt on his back rise up to become a business owner and elected official? And why exactly is the barbershop such a vital community gathering spot? Host Hal Row learns answers to these questions and more with this month’s storyteller, David Williams.
From industrial designer to cider maker, Justin Fox transformed his passion for making things into buying an orchard and crafting a life for himself and his family in Catawba County. Justin joins host Hal Row to talk apples and inspiration – and just how crazy his wife thought he was when he announced he wanted to become a farmer.
