The Carleton County Agricultural Society was established in the mid-1800s in order to provide a forum where farmers and those interested in agriculture could discuss agricultural matters such as crops, livestock, and prices. The Carleton County Agricultural Society covered the areas of Woodstock and Jacksonville, New Brunswick. The society's primary activities included the buying and selling of cattle at auction for profit and organizing annual county exhibitions. At these exhibitions, members of the society would show their cattle, horses, and sheep. The society also purchased land on which to house its livestock and hold exhibitions.
The society held annual meetings to determine its administration. The earliest known president of the society was S. Peabody, who became president in 1875 and remained in that position until 1883 .
