Hmong immigrants Chue and Tou Lee of Lee’s One Fortune Farm in Morganton, NC, grow Asian produce and heirloom rice from the mountains of Laos. The Lees arrived in Marion, NC, in the 1980s after fleeing the Vietnam War via a perilous trek through the jungle. Since then, they’ve worked to share their cultural heritage and commitment to sustainable farming with their community in western NC.
