History of Family Farms in Orange County - Seymour

Thursday, October 17, 2019

Join long-time Orange County resident Gordon Neville for a look back in time at family farms you may have known. The rural O.C. economy went from primary crops of cotton, tobacco, timber, then to dairy and eventually to beef cattle. Labor was supplied by large (7-9 children), low-income, land-owning families plus share-cropping families. Presentation includes vintage aerial photographs. Min: 25/Max: 80. Speaker: Gordon Neville
