Saving the Farm

Record #:
Although North Carolina is known for textiles, furniture, and biotechnology, agriculture remains the state's number one industry, accounting for $68 billion annually. However, since 1990, over a million acres of forest and farms have been lost, mostly to development, and in 2005, over 1,000 farms were lost, the most in any state. To preserve what is left the state is working on projects to help make farming more profitable.
