North Carolina’s beautiful beaches and mountains draw millions to the state every year. Columbus County has come up with something else, in hopes of drawing a crowd.

The county has plans to build a 1930’s-style working farm. The plan is in the preliminary stages. The public is invited to give input at upcoming public meetings.

The completed project will have on-sight accommodations, where visitors can learn what the farming industry was like in the thirties and forties.

“There will be crop land. It’ll be mule-driven, crop-land. You’ll have an opportunity to actually take part in that. So it won’t be static,” said Jennifer Long of the Columbus County Tourism Bureau. “It’ll be fun for you to do; educational of course.”

Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase crops from the farmland. The tourism bureau has just decided on a location for the farm; next to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Tabor City.
