Farming attracted people to New England. Farming was New England's main economic activity. People also used waterpower from the streams on their land in order to run mills for grinding grain or sawing lumber. They used wood in the forest to make ships for transportation. They also fished for cod, halibut, crabs, oysters, and lobsters for food and trade.
