Hard work is something twelve-year-old Eutah Russell is used to, and, for a summer job, the Salem Middle School student has opened a produce stand in Hardy.

One of the best things about summer is the availability of fresh produce in the area. Russell's stand features both local and home grown produce such as, onions, potatoes, green beens, squash, corn, tomatoes, plums and cucumbers. Watermelons and other produce will also be for sale as it becomes available.

Eutah's stand has been very successful and, if he runs out of produce, Russell is able to quickly restock the items needed for his customers. Large orders are also available the following day.

Eutah shows up on the infamous Arkansas Outlaws TV show, with his grandfather Crowbar Russell. He is saving his money from the produce stand to purchase a new bow. Russell enjoys hunting and fishing and outdoor activities. June 10, he and his friend Zack Sheets won the youth division of the canoe race at Hardy.

Russell will be selling produce at his stand next to Down Home Country Kitchen in Hardy from 10 a.m. until 3 or 4 p.m., Thursday through Saturday.

Russell is the son of Shane and Alana Russell of Hardy.
