ELIZABETH CITY, NC January 2, 2013 – Join the Museum of the Albemarle for a new lecture series, “Back to the Past”, every first Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m.
The Museum begins the new lecture series on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at 10 a.m. with Looking Back Farm in Perquimans County. A member of the Haines family will answer your questions about organic farming.
The Haines have been farming organically since 1987. The family manages 350 acres in Perquimans County. In 2011, with support from a grant, the Haines family created a mobile organic feed mill that supplies local livestock farms with bagged organic corn and wheat feed. It is the first source of organic feed in his region. Through this community endeavor, they are demonstrating the viability of organic agriculture.
