People sometimes describe us as a quaint, rural, farmers and southern, but we like to call ourselves down-to-earth kind of people. Goldsboro Wayne-County has acres of open land, punctuated by long shimmering rows of summer crops (like our cucumbers!), grazing livestock, and Muscadine laden vineyards. Put away the phones and social media. Step away from the metropolitan hustle and bustle, and get some fresh air. Visit our local farms to experience a simpler lifestyle, to understand where our foods come from, and to celebrate American tradition!
