Thomas Sowell and his wife own Southeast Palm and Foliage in Astor, Florida, in the middle of the state, about 40 miles west of Daytona Beach.
"It's in the middle of nowhere, actually," Sowell told CNA in January.
Sowell isn't Catholic, but his business supplies palms to hundreds of Catholic parishes across the country- in every state, as well as in Canada- not to mention the many Episcopal, Eastern Orthodox, and Lutheran communities that also use palms.
Last year, the Sowells' farm shipped over four million palm leaves.
