Head Out to a Farm!
We always encourage visitors and residents to get outside the city and explore our agricultural roots! Check our U-Pick Seasons page often to learn what's ripe for the picking or what events on area farms are fun outings for the family. Know where your food comes from and meet the farmers growing it!
There are now over 90 Johnston County farms, agribusinesses, and events listed on the Visit NC Farms App (click to download), a new 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 listings include farms, u-pick operations, farmers markets, restaurants sourcing from local farms, and even farms that double as wedding venues!
