Brookneal Pickle Company Ss
I ;;inni 3 its fourth year of op
eratio! s in WinfaH,, contracting
cur-v.ruber acreage in Perquimans
Coui.ty under the able manage
merit of J. F. Hollowell & Sons.
Fr m a humble- beginning in
1C .2 of 600 acres, Brookneal
FiJJe Company is now among
t'.a largest raisers of pickling
f .umbers in North Carolina,
raising well 1 over 4,000 acres.
All cucumbers raised and . sold
to Brookneal are shipped to its
processing plant in Henderson,
North Carolina, for processing
into - pickles tuder the , tsmtee
The company is state approv
ed and. raises .only Model cu
cumber seed which has been de-
termined best suited for this C., E. Harris and John Coston. ,
area: Last year Brookneal Pickle j Medical Investigation Commit
Company,' paid $30,01)0 to local tee: .. R. L. Hollowell. chairman:
farmers for their crops and $5,000
in payroll to workers v who.
handled the grading and teceiy-
ing operations at the J.F. Hoi
Due to the ..scope of their
business, Brookneal Pickle Com
pany has never had an acreage
'allotment in' Perquimans. County
and does not have one at this
time. They have been operating
in North Carolina for over 20
years' and have : never closed
down .a . cucumber ? receiving
station, until the crop Was over.
A prime reason for this is the
fact that the Brookneal process
ing plartt is the largest in North
Carolina and since it is so con-
, venicntly situated in Perquim
ans County it Tacilitafej the re
ceiving' ,of cucumbers long af
ter out 'of state companies must
