Description: Pictured here is a farm house in the Irving area in 1925. In 1925, Irving and the surrounding area supplied much of Dallas County with fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.  Most of the fruit and vegetables were produced on small truck farms, so called because farmers would load their produce onto their trucks and take it to various markets  such as the Farmers Market in downtown Dallas.
