Shopping local is all the craze these days and we totally support that!

Johnston County HamsWith our long history of farming in Johnston County, we have fantastic local products worth a visit to purchase or you may find them available online. From country ham, cornmeal products to red hot dogs...many of these family owned businesses have been around for generations.  What we find we love as much as the products is the people and families behind them, keep up with our Johnston County BLOG and learn more about the people and places in our county.
