This Month’s Issue: From the Farm

Agriculture and agribusiness is North Carolina’s leading industry, with more than 8.4 million acres dedicated to farm operations, according to the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. In this issue, we’re exploring creative ways farmers are using their land, whether producing hot peppers or sorghum syrup, or teaching valuable lessons to our state’s youth. Also, learn about some exciting solar power projects.
