New Agriculture Pathfinder–Just in Time for Spring


North Carolina’s agricultural roots run deep, and we have unveiled a new pathfinder called “Agriculture in North Carolina” in our research guides to outline the maps, magazines, pamphlets, postcards, and histories related to the state’s rich agricultural history.  The pathfinder covers industries that are known successes, such as hog farming, but also industries such as peanut farming (Actually, North Carolina ranks third in the nation in this crop production.).  Sections about the State Fair, farmers’ markets, plantation life, education, and women and agriculture are also featured.  If you’re interested in anything and everything having to do with North Carolina agriculture, this is a great place to get started!
