‘I Belong In a Barn’

‘I Belong In a Barn’, Southern Pines Pilot, Oct. 22, 2012. Each October, the N.C. State Fair ­beckons visitors with bright lights, whirling rides and the savory-sweet smell of deep-fried food. First held in 1853 by the North Carolina State Agricultural Society, the fair was an annual gathering to showcase the latest ­scientific advancements in farming and to highlight the best livestock, crops, machinery and homemade goods produced around the state.
