Harnett County Southern Pea Project

Year Funded

2019

Amount

$32,500.00

The Harnett County office of North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service will purchase two pea shellers and mount them on trailers to be used at multiple farms. The equipment will enable former and current tobacco farmers to try a new crop and explore much needed value-added opportunities. The equipment will help farmers develop new markets and help them take advantage of a strong local demand for fresh shelled peas and fresh frozen peas.
