No the North didn't have plantations. The main reason for plantations was the crops grown pulled minerals from the soil so they need a lot of land to rotate the crops and let some fields lie fallow. The northern colonies had less land available for this method and cash crops was the main reason for the system in the north compared to the south.
•North Carolina was the 8th colony to be colonized. •Charles II found it but than had no use for it so he gave it to the Virginians. •It was founded in 1653. •Wilmington, Roanoke, Raleigh where all major cities at the time. •Wealthy Virginian colonist where the ones who mostly populated the colony at first. •The most common job was being a farmer. •Tobacco ,wheat,& rice were the main crops.
In colonial times, the colony of North Carolina had an agricultural economy. The two main crops were tobacco and cotton. The bulk of the land was held in huge plantations and worked by slaves. Independent Carolinians had smaller farms and allot fewer slaves. There was room for jobs in other areas that were farm based, such as blacksmith, architect, livestock breeder, house servant, and ship builder.
Crops that are commonly grown here include soybeans and tobacco. Cotton is grown in the Lowcountry. We also have some rice and tea plantations close to the coast. Vegetables like corn and wheat grow in South Carolina, but we do not have big farms like they do in the Midwest. We also grow a lot of sod, which is grass used in landscaping!
