What began 15 years ago with an armful of dried fruit and a farmer's entrepreneurial flair has grown to become the world's largest gourd crafting company. Ben Bear's Carlisle-based operation is so vast and unique, it's been featured on Mike Rowe's Discovery Channel TV show, "Dirty Jobs." Take a tour to see how Ben and his crafters create baskets, birdhouses and vases like you've never seen before. Absolutely gourd-geous!
