Over the past several decades, North Carolina has continued to diversify its strong agricultural economy, transitioning from a reliance on its traditional, tobacco-based system to a more varied economic structure in which farmers rely more and more on specialty crops and other non-traditional products—including locally-grown fruits, vegetables, Christmas trees, ornamental plants, flowers, and herbs—while also marketing these products directly to consumers.
