Tonight at 9:00 pm I will be parked in front of my television in anticipation- The Discovery Channel’s famous show Dirty Jobs will feature some of our very own local clam farmers. The show came to Franklin County in September to film clam harvesting in Alligator Harbor as well as worm grunting in the Apalachicola National Forest.
The host of the show, Mike Rowe, harvested clams with St. Teresa Clam Company’s owner Clayton Lewis, along with Bruce Skelton and Chip Earl. Lewis harvests clams from two leased areas of Alligator Harbor. They also filmed clam processing near the Sopchoppy River in Wakulla and a clam bake.
Dirty Jobs is said to profile the unsung American laborers who make their living in the most unthinkable — yet vital — ways. I’m eager to see their take on our hardworking and dedicated clam harvesters. Be sure and tune in!
