ln County Farms
: ''ffiftWi r--,-:.-:
" Peiulmans County ' had 198 less
farms in 1950 as -compared with 194S,

U. 8. Department of Commerce. The
census report listed Perquimans as
having 961 Jarms, of all sises in 1950
as comparewjtth 1,159 in 1945.
Other facts containeitn the report
showed 60 per cent of the land area
of the -county represented farms and
the average size bf a farm was 104.3
Another interesting fact, the re
port showed was the value of farm
products sold in 1949 s compared to
1944. Total value of farm products,
of all types, sold in 1949 was $2,026,
062 compared ' with $2,695,336 in
1944. The drop in. products sold, no
doubt, was due to inclement weather
conditions which existed during the
past three years.
