Segments in this Video

Clams (06:36)


Bobby Bognar joins a fourth generation clam-kicker in North Carolina; they prepare and drive a specialized boat into Core Sound. They dredge the sea bed, and sort smaller specimens out of the catch.

Pasta (04:58)

D. Maldari and Sons manufactures extrusion dies used to shape noodles into uniform size and shape. A machine precision cuts designs. The forms are then pounded into the support, finishing the product.

Pine Nuts (06:24)

Bognar aids Continental Divide Pinyon Company harvesters with a wild forest crop. Workers rake duff from beneath trees and load it into a processing machine; nuts are cleaned, dried, sorted, shelled, and peeled.

Artichokes (05:08)

At Ocean Mist Farms, workers hand cut vegetables, storing them in canastas until delivery to an on-site packing machine. They are sorted, boxed, and chilled in a Hydrovac cooler before shipment to stores.

Balsamic Vinegar (05:59)

Gelato (06:40)
