Photos from the Field: Down on the Farm

Commodity characters ride on the N.C. Dept. of Agriculture's float in the 1997 inaugural parade.

The commodity characters shown above were originally used for Down on the Farm, a play created by our Marketing Division in the 1990s to promote N.C. agriculture. Several costumes have fallen into disrepair over the past decade, but some are still used by the department and commodity associations for special events. Most recently, the Suzy Strawberry costume has appeared in a series of promotional videos for the department. Follow the link below each thumbnail to watch these videos on YouTube.
