Family farms began to flourish in the mid 1940s. Main crops that were grown included cabbage, potatoes, corn, and cotton. Many families also kept livestock such as chickens, cows, and pigs for their own subsistence as well as a way to supplement their income through sales.

Farmers in this area belong to a rich legacy and often can be identified by streets named in their honor as far out as Havelock, North Carolina.
