2019 Moore County Program Impact Report

Approved: January 21, 2020

I. Executive Summary

The 2019 economy in Moore County continued to be impacted by population growth that has almost reached 100,000, the continuing decline in tobacco production, and agriculture unit prices and production drops from national and international markets. However, in the absence of a major weather event, yields and income from small fruits, such as strawberries, and peaches fared well. Additionally, anticipation from the emerging hemp industry is that it will replace or off-set losses in declining tobacco production. Acreage under hemp production in 2019 totaled around 500 acres in Moore County, adding a projected value of almost $30,000 per acre. Contributing to 20% of the county’s economy, agriculture has been the focus of many partners in the region that include Cooperative Extension, Soil and Water/Natural Resources Conservation Service, county partners and local economic development organizations. Cooperative Extension is the lead education organization for areas including, profitable agriculture, adult and youth leadership development (4-H and Master Gardeners) and healthy families. With the support and leadership of volunteers, 8185 hours were devoted to Extension programming at a value of $208,145. Effective programs were shared in the community through Master Gardener Volunteers, 4-H volunteers, farm commodity organizations and ECA members. Through Extension staff efforts, an additional $42,396 in donations and grants were procured to enhance programs that reached more citizens in Moore County.

The educational goals of Profitable Agriculture & Local Foods, Youth Development, and Healthy Families represent the identified needs of Moore County. These goals were implemented in a variety of delivery methods designed to most effectively reach target audiences. The descriptions below highlight some of the impacts Extension programs made in 2019:

Critical to the success of small farm viability is customer appreciation, advocacy, purchase, and consumption of local foods. However, consumers need to be educated or reminded of the benefits of supporting local farms and of their contributions to the local economy. Extension helped to promote local food consumption while increasing local farm capacity through agritourism initiatives undertaken in 2019. Moore County Extension utilized an on-going agritourism task force of farmers and community economic development leaders to foster farm preservation and expansion through the collaborative development and implementation of marketing strategies designed to continuously promote agritourism enterprises. Two key projects executed by Extension and the task force significantly impacted the public awareness of agriculture in Moore County. The first project involved the production of a Fork to Farmer video that is cross-marketed across the state on the NCSU Extension website, as well as, on community partner websites and social media platforms. The second project introduced the use of mobile technology to agritourism. In partnership with the NC Department of Agriculture, the area Convention and Visitors Bureau, and other community entities, 50 Moore County farms and agribusinesses can be found on the Visit NC Farms mobile app. Additionally, requests for business development from area farms resulted in an Extension delivered agritourism short course that was offered at Sandhills Community College. This collaboration with the community college increased Extension’s outreach capacity and enabled Extension to serve farming constituents seeking to increase farm production or income through agritourism.

Among plant production systems, 1,435 farmers, farmworkers, and commercial pesticide applicators were trained by Extension in 2019, and an additional 9 new applicators received training that enabled them to obtain a new license. Pesticide label review, calibration, pest identification, and worker and handler safety were covered. Best management practices for soybeans, tobacco, turf and ornamental plants, peaches, blueberries, and aquatic weed management were also covered in 21 separate meetings. The number of farms and acreage planted in legumes and cover crops has quadrupled over the past seven years, to approximately 6,160 acres. The use of on-farm composting and commercially prepared compost has increased by similar amounts. The emerging industrial hemp industry has prompted Extension to seek advice and analyses from researchers, Extension specialists, and industry professionals in the field on the feasibility and potential agricultural projections. By providing current and evolving information and education, Extension continues to help Moore County farmers increase productivity and profitability capacity.

Livestock production in Moore County ranks 27th in the state, resulting in about $138,631,698 in annual sales. Livestock sales in Moore County represent about 87% of the agricultural products sold. During 2019, 540 livestock producers were trained in best management practices including nutrient and pasture management, waste management, animal husbandry and animal selection for improved genetics and optimal market pricing, financial farm management, and record-keeping. Ninety-three beef producers were schooled and received their beef quality assurance certification. In addition to helping producers increase profitability, farm preservation and concerns pertaining to the aging farming community were addressed. Through the partnership established with Vocational Education Department of Moore County Public Schools and through 3 summer youth camps offered, 169 students learned about the various careers available in agriculture. The exposure the students gained from these opportunities will potentially encourage and direct youth toward career paths in agriculture.

Moore County 4-H strives to explore and share the benefits of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) through a variety of youth programs. Moore County 4-H partnered with the Moore County School system and trained 20 second grade teachers to implement the embryology project in their respective classrooms where 442 students studied the developmental life-cycle of chickens. Two-hundred-seven Moore County youth ranging in ages 5-18 participated in innovative 4-H summer programs that included 3 livestock camps, Cooking Around to World, Robotics and Tinkering Camps, and a Vision Board Creation Camp. In addition to supplementing STEM Education, the summer camping program promoted life skills, healthy lifestyles, career, and leadership development. Also, in its second year, the three-county “4-H Chopped” competition promoted critical thinking skills, team building, and cooking skills among participating youth. Residential and outdoor adventure camps presented youth with opportunities to gain skills in swimming and canoeing while teaching them about the environment and the conservation of our natural resources. New this year, the 4-H counselor-in-training program provided the 4-H agent extra help implementing the summer camp programs and gave two youth the opportunity to gain skills needed to become competitive candidates in the job market. In an effort to build community capacity and offer experiential learning opportunities to underserved youth, Moore County 4-H partnered with the Moore County Library to sponsor the National 4-H Youth Science Day, and with the Boys and Girls Club to send 9 youth and one adult to 4-H residential camp. Finally, six 4-H community clubs provided 152 4-Hers year-long opportunities to develop leadership and life skills through community service projects, participation in selected 4-H projects, 4-H presentations, and 4-H record keeping. Through the 4-H club structure, the 4-H Teen Council gives adolescent members leadership opportunities by encouraging them to serve as mentors to younger 4-H members, assisting them to plan and orchestrate county-wide 4-H projects, and inspiring them to take on district and state 4-H leadership positions.

Extension recognizes that adequate nutrition and healthy lifestyles lead to healthier communities and an improved quality of life for their residents. This year through Family and Consumer Sciences nutrition education, 151 adults increased their daily fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity, while at the same time reduced their sugar and sodium intake. Another 59 adults gained life skills in classes taught by the Family and Consumer Sciences Agent in food preparation, food preservation, and food safety. Family and Consumer Sciences also contributed to the economic viability of local restaurants and the promotion of local foods by providing food safety certification training. Fifty-five food safety managers were trained in preventative and safe food handling practices, and 16 local farmers, who sell at local farmers’ markets, learned best food handling practices for markets. The results of the trainings enabled food service businesses to comply with health department standards by acquiring their required food safety designations and customers of restaurants or local farmers’ markets are assured that food can be consumed safely.

II. County Background

Moore County is a largely rural county with eleven incorporated small towns. The county covers almost 700 square miles of land area in central North Carolina. It is part of a region known as the “Sandhills” and borders Cumberland, Harnett, Hoke, Scotland, Richmond, Montgomery, Randolph, Chatham, and Lee counties. Moore County is characterized by the sandy soil and rolling hills. The 2000 Census revealed that Moore County’s population was 74,768, but by the end of 2017, the population was estimated to be at 97,597. This is an increase of 23.4% since the last census. The NC Budget and Management Office projects that by the year 2030, the county’s population will be around 115,154, which will be about an additional 15.2% increase from the 2017 estimation or about a 35.01% increase from 2000.

Tourism, agriculture, healthcare, education, and government are the largest economic sectors and employers. Agriculture in the Sandhills makes up close to 20% of the economic output based on dollars of production. Moore County has seen an increase in the number of people aged 20 to 45 moving to the area, as more and more people in this age group are discovering the business and employment opportunities, safe neighborhoods, good schools, and the realignment of Fort Bragg. Our communities continue to attract active retirees as well. Moore County is growing, but with its large land area, it maintains a more rural, open feeling.

The county's northern half is considered part of the Southern Piedmont area in North Carolina with rolling hills and predominantly deciduous forests. The county historically has water supply issues due to its geography and geology. The county's lower portion is a part of the Sandhills Region characterized by longleaf pines, scrub oaks, and sandy soils.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture Census of Agriculture, twenty thousand acres of farmland has been lost to urbanization pressures since 2007, fortunately, this trend has slowed but continues to be a concern. Moore County has lost more farmland than all but three counties in the state that leads the nation in farmland lost.

The local Extension staff's 2007 Environmental Scan collected detailed demographic and programmatic information. The 2019 Plan of Work uses that data along with other needs assessment data collected throughout 2008-2018. Program committees, volunteers, and clients are routinely consulted in facilitated discussion in both paper and online surveys. Educational programs are developed from these responses and include Profitable Agriculture & Local Foods, Community Development, School to Career Skill Development, and Healthy Families. These program goals are endorsed by the Moore County Advisory Council and will guide the program moving forward. Program impacts are measured through participant feedback and program evaluations given to program participants at the completion of implemented programs and through testimonials of results voluntarily given by participants who have adopted practices learned from Extension programs. Program impacts will be useful to ensure planned programs are meeting the needs of constituents and are meeting the 2019 Plan of Work.

The 2019 Plan of Work also includes building and strengthening Extension's capabilities through continued involvement in public policy education, facilitating applicable community issues, and engaging county partnerships to address common goals. Extension partners with Moore County Government, the Moore County Chamber of Commerce, MooreHealth, Partners in Progress (local economic development), the Pinehurst/Southern Pines/Aberdeen Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Sandhills Community College to develop adult community leaders and advocates who will be engaged in the prosperous health of Moore County. Other partnerships designed to promote sustainable and profitable farming systems include the Sandhills Farmers' Cooperative, Green Fields Sandhills, and Sandhills Farm to Fork. Youth gain leadership skills through the 4-H and youth leadership programs. The Moore CED serves on the board of MooreHealth, a county collaborative committee that includes the Moore County Health Department, representatives from the First Health medical system, and non-profit health agencies that work together to address and find community solutions to chronic dietary and lifestyle-related diseases. By vigorously fostering county and community partnerships and collaborative efforts, Moore County Extension can most effectively build community capacity, meet the needs of Moore County residents and advance the Extension objectives that best serve Moore County.
