Photo tour of Toyota Mississippi

Today officially marks the first anniversary of Toyota’s start of Corolla production in Mississippi.

The Mississippi plant isn’t open to the public, but the Toyota staff was kind enough to give the NEMS Daily Journal an exclusive tour Tuesday.

Toyota will have a full media day Thursday. Plus, it hosts a family day Saturday.

We have lots of ways for you to find out more about the plant. Click link below for photos and more coverage.

Old Thyme Farms in Oxford raises rare Tamworth heritage breed hogs. The organic pork is on the menus at several upscale restaurants, including Snackbar, 208 and City Grocery.

He’s taken orders now for his fall CSA. Via Eating Oxford:
