Model Farm of T.L. Emery, 1883, NC

year 1883

June 7, 1883 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 3d page)

Mr. W.A. Dunn tells us that while in Weldon last week he visited the “Model Farm” of Mr. T.L. Emery. He says that Mr. Emery has forty acres of land in clover and orchard grass. It will average four feet in height, and about four tons can be cut therefrom this season. Mr. Emery is one of the most prosperous, energetic, and thrifty men in the county, and we wish some of our Roanoke farmers would follow him, and sow grass and clover. The investment would pay.
