We always encourage visitors and residents to get outside the city and explore our agricultural roots! Check back here often to learn what's ripe for the picking and what events on area farms are fun outings for the family.
Even during the winter months, several of our farms are growing root vegetables or using their greenhouses. You can find these local foods at the Clayton Farmers Market year-round. Know where your food comes from and meet the farmers growing it!
If you would like to visit farms directly, download the Visit NC Farms App, an initiative from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. The app is a digital marketing tool aimed at the 10 million residents and over 50 million visitors to the state annually. Johnston County's 100 listings include farms, u-pick operations, farmers markets, restaurants sourcing from local farms, and even farms that double as wedding venues!
Every season is somebody's favorite, and Johnston County is the perfect place to get those locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables you crave.
