Industries of the Merrimack Valley, New Hampshire.
MetadataShow full item record
The upper Merrimack River runs almost due south through the rolling hills of southern New Hampshire, and includes the section from the confluence of the Pemigewasset and Winnepesaukee Rivers to the Massachusetts state boundary. The soils of the valley are stony and podzolic or sandy loams, and the growing season averages about 140 days a year. Because of these factors, and the hilly terrain which makes large scale farming and mechanization impractical, the area cannot compete in agricultural production with the farms of the western United States, except for such special products as poultry, dairy products, apples, and market garden items.
