On Monday afternoon, Attorney General @joshsteinnc, the Democratic nominee for governor, stopped by Sharp Farms in Wilson County, which has been in operation since 1928.

Stein toured the farm with Pender Sharp, who serves as the Farm Manager, and discussed the farm operation, and what support they need to be successful.

North Carolina is projected to lose the second most farmland in the nation by 2040. Stein says a balance is needed between growth and the preservation of farmland.
