Farmer: They would normally grow corn, flax, wheat, and tobbacco. Farmers cleared away the field by hand. If you were a farmer you would get up very early in the morning and immediately start milking the cows. If it was the spring you would be getting the ox and start plowing the fields (a very big one although there is no average). If you couldn't afford a ox you would have to plow the land by hand.

The things normally sent from New york were flour, corn, biscuit, timber, tuns, boards, meat, fish, butter, and other stuff.
