What are the financial impacts of COVID-19 to your agritourism operation?
Farmers are some of the most creative entrepreneurs and continue to pivot to address shifts in consumer demand as a result of COVID-19. The COVID-19 economic impact survey from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is intended to include all agribusinesses that offer agritourism activities and guest experiences. The data will be compiled for policymakers and other authorities that may be considering disaster relief funds to support recovery efforts for North Carolina’s agritourism industry as a whole. Results will be aggregated together to protect your farm’s identity. Please answer all questions to the best of your ability.

We are stepping back in time to 1929, it's Thursday, March 21st. Just like today in 2020, The Chatham Record hits the newsstands on Thursdays. Every Thursday, Noble Calhoun Shiver would provide updated Farm News. He was the Chatham County Farm Agent, and today he would be classified as the County Extension Director. One of the stories that he highlighted was about a Chatham County farmer inventing a new lime spreader. Read the story below as it appeared in 1929.
