About Barnes Farming, Spring Hope, North Carolina

The son of a North Carolina farmer himself, Carson Barnes had absolutely nothing to his name when he started farming in 1960. The first year he grew .3 acre (2 rows) of sweet potatoes, pegged in his plants, dug them up at harvest time, brushed and washed them by hand, and loaded them on a ’51 pickup truck to peddle at local stores. Still under Carson’s leadership, and still family owned to this day, Barnes Farming has operations in 5 eastern North Carolina counties, managing over 14,000 acre of prime, cultivated land, including over 5,000 acres of sweet potatoes, 1,800 acres of peanuts, and 1,000 acres of wheat.
