My 14 year old son is doing his Eagle Scout project by organizing 40 people
to transcribe the first census of Broward County, Florida (our town) It's
the 1920 census and for jobs it mentions "truck farmer" (it could be brick)
This is South Florida, what in the world is that occupation? Any clues?
I'm usually quite good at deciphering, but it doesn't sound right. Thanks
for any ideas or opinions. Karen
My grandfather called his large garden a "truck farm". I assumed that maybe
it referred to gardens raised where the produce was sold to others.
