Farmer Richard Wiswall has been growing organic crops in Vermont for over 25 years. In the past five years, he's converted from oil to biodiesel all his greenhouses, tractors, trucks and a couple cars. To what end? Great produce grown a little greener, and the world's best tomatoes.
Listen in as he talks about the pros and cons of biodiesel he makes from used fryer grease that area restaurants give him.
