Cy Rich and his sons have purchased 20,000 acres of muckland twelve miles east of Belhaven and are converting it into one of the most unique agricultural ventures in the nation. The farm is called Farm Boys Ranch, and a chain of Farm Boys Restaurants will operate in North Carolina and the nation. Vertically integrated agriculture is what gives the farm its uniqueness. Simply stated, grain products are grown on the farm and processed by the cattle and hogs. The cattle and hogs are processed in the farm's food processing plant. The food is then sold in the restaurants.
