History Conversations REWIND: Montgomery County Agriculture: From Tobacco to Today

May 6 - May 12

with Tom Farquhar

The rich soil of Montgomery County has supported a wide variety of agricultural enterprises, ranging from millennia of crop cultivation by indigenous communities, to tobacco plantations of the first colonial settlers of European descent, progressing to market farming serving growing populations in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Today the agriculture of Montgomery County has diversified to include commodity grain production, landscaping, and horse-riding operations, as well as a small but growing table-food and pick-your-own sector. The Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve, a land-planning treasure, grants the assurance that farming will remain part of the story of the county forever. Originally aired at the January 2023 Montgomery County History Conference. 
Available May 6 – 12.
