The Masumoto peach farm near Fresno has been in David Masumoto's family since 1948, after his Japanese grandparents were released from a WWII internment camp and worked the land until they could afford to buy it. Now David is preparing to pass the farm onto the fourth generation -- his daughter Nikiko -- as he deals with the effects of climate change on crops and struggles to recover from triple bypass surgery. David and Nikiko join us to talk about the family's rich agricultural legacy, and the economic and environmental challenges facing the farm -- the subject of their new book and the documentary, "Changing Season."
