The Big Farmer...Duplin


Author(s):
Abstract:
In six years, Duplin County doubled its agricultural income and is still growing, now drawing the biggest agricultural income in the state. Occupying 822 square miles of southeastern North Carolina, Duplin possesses ten towns, almost all of these engaged in agriculture. In 1952 with reduced tobacco allotments, diversification became the new agricultural strategy as farmers began commercially producing poultry, rounding out their industry with lumber mills.
