Agriculture in Bartow County
Marie Nesmith's interview with Paul Pugliese on the history of agriculture in Bartow County.
Did you know?
  • In the early 1950s, some Bartow county farmers began growing pimentos, but it only lasted a few years.

  • Peaches were a major crop in the early 1900s in north Bartow County, with thousands of crates of peaches being shipped from Adairsville.

  • American Indians working the soil for food during the Mississippian Period in this area, including those who built and lived around the Etowah Indian Mounds between about 1000 to 1500 AD, grew crops, such as corn, beans, squash, and sunflowers, using simple tools made from local materials.
