Update on Orton Rice Plantation

Several news outlets, most notably the Charlotte Observer, have published reports on the work taking place on Orton Plantation on the Cape Fear River of North Carolina. Several years ago a Hedge-fund manager with historic family ties to the plantation purchases Orton. He subsequently closed it to the public and has embarked an extensive project of restoration to forests and rice fields.

It appears that re-starting some tidal rice cultivation may be part of the dream for Orton.
