Produce Plan Adds
.... ' u
To County Income
A farm produce project under
taken early this year by J. F.
Hollowell & Son, Inc., proved
financially beneficial ' to. this
area according" to a report re-'
leased ..this -week b the firm.
More than $54,000 was paid
out to farmers and laborers for
the ' production of snap beans
and cucumbers. Joel Hollowell
said 'most of , the contracts for
this produce-was with farmers
in Perquimans , County. '
The program resulted in some
controversy at- first when it was
revealed a migrant camp was to
be established in connection
with the program, but Mr. Hol
lowell said he was happy to re
port there had been no trouble
in connection with the operation
of this camp.
He reported his firm had paid
out a total of $31,355.59 for snap j
beans and cucumbers and $17,
614.34 for labor. A little over
was paid out for freight .
on the produce.
Feed Grain Payments Being
Made lii Amount Of $175,000
Perquimans County feed grain
participants 1 are now being no
tified by mail that their final ;
feed grain payment is ready for j
their signature. ; Because of the
large number of farmers involv
ed, it was necessary to notify
about 150 per day.
It is expected that these final
Davments will total approxi-'
mately $175,000.00. Advance ;
payments paid out during April
