N. C. Farms Growing

Figures now in from the 1959
Census of Agriculture show, that
North Carolina farms are now
increasing , in size for the , first
time since the Civil War. -
The average Tar Heel farm in
1959 had 83.4 acres, or about 15
more acres than In 1954. JDufv
ing the five-year ' period from
1950-54, North , Carolina farms
averaged gaining only one acre.
While the " trend is now the
same,' the increase in size of
North Carolina farms is far'bf
low the average for the United
States. ' , ' . i
In 1954, the ' average U S.
