North Carolina People, Places, and Things-November 24
I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.
In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.
There are a lot of turkeys being consumed today in America.
North Carolina plays a prominent role in that segment of the poultry industry. Here are some facts about that impact.
The Poultry Industry’s Economic Impact for NC is $34.4 Billion
• The Poultry Industry creates over 109,000 Jobs for North Carolinians
• Poultry is the #1 Agricultural Industry in North Carolina
• North Carolina is ranked #2 Nationally in Total Turkey Production
At my home in Lumberton we continue on the nearly 20 year tradition of deep frying turkeys for family and friends. We try to do our part for the NC poultry economy by deep frying ten turkeys today.
