Farm looking ahead after wet summer devastated crops

After a flood this summer wiped out most of its crops, Boyd Family Farm is looking ahead to fall and winter. This photo was posted on Facebook this week, showing the farm’s fall harvest.

WILMINGTON - At Boyd Family Farm, the end of a long, arduous summer is welcome. After flooding wiped out the farm’s crops on July 10, the family has worked hard to clean up the aftermath of that flood and look ahead toward the future. 
In the days leading up to the autumnal equinox, Janet Boyd said the family was focusing on fall favorites, including mums, which grew great this year despite the heavy moisture of the summer. Amid the changing leaves and mum sales, the family is trying to find ways to make up for revenue lost in the flood.
