JoCo Grows Agriculture
The JoCo Grows Agriculture Marketing Committee was formed in 2019 to include members of the farming and agribusiness community to discuss and enhance marketing efforts for on-farm events, increase revenues for buy direct and pick-your-own farms, and to provide resources for marketing the agricultural assets of Johnston County. The committee's start up accomplishments include creating and trademarking a logo, completing 95% of the 3-year Marketing Plan, and being awarded two grants to continue the work set forth in the marketing plan.
In the coming months, the committee will revise and update the Marketing Plan to look forward to the next 3-5 years. We welcome any community input as our focus remains the education and awareness of agriculture as a vital part of our county.
Please contact Nicole Youngblood with any suggestions for our committee. She can be reached at 919-989-5380.
To tell the story of agriculture in Johnston County, past, present, and future as the county grows at a
tremendous rate, may we recognize how important it is that JoCo Grows Agriculture.
