There are a couple of farms in the phone book, and looking at the aerial views, they might be hog farms. I can't tell for sure. One also appears to be a poultry farm.

However, there are far fewer in Newport than there are northwest of Jacksonville, since Newport is surrounded by the Croatan National Forest.

I would bet they are chickens with Sanderson being in Kinston. They needed 250 producers to support that plant.

Nope, they're hog farms. Hog farms are easily recognized by their lagoons as is seen inside of the black square. This hog farm is about 1/4 mile outside of the Newport town limits.

If the OP is concerned about smelling the hog farms, you don't need a 15 mile radius. Once you get beyond a couple of miles away it's difficult to know there's a hog farm nearby. We're located about 3 miles from the nearest hog farm and in 3 years, I've only faintly smelled "country air" once. We have a poultry farm about 1/2 mile away and never smell it.

You should be okay on the western side of Newport. The winds usually blow in a easterly direction anyway.
