Federal Point Agriculture

Cabbage Box Lable

Potatoes were the number one crop in the Federal Point and Hastings area for years. The Hastings Potatoe Growers Association is a result of this. In 1924 there were 294 farms in the Area growing potatoes. The average farm was 100 acres; the largest being 1046 acres and the smallest 100 acres. Hastings was known as "The Potatoe Capitol of the World".
