Food grown in Alaska has its own special flavor, from sweet corn that needs to be transplanted to tomatoes that grow only indoors and zucchini grown in high tunnels. The Mat-Su Valley is one of the state’s most productive agricultural areas, and a tour of working farms showcases techniques unique to Alaska.
