Featured Farms

Page Farms Logo

Page Farms

Page Farms is a fourth generation family farm working together on the land they grew up on in Raleigh, NC. Page Farms strives to keep their heritage alive by bringing fresh fruits and vegetables to their community. This hundred acre farm has seen a lot of change since 1922 when it was purchased.

Many different crops have been grown in their fields over the past 100 years. From ripening strawberries in the Spring time to pumpkins in the Fall, Page Farms is there year round making sure only the best crops are grown just for you. For many years they were proud tobacco farmers right here in North Carolina. When the tobacco buy-out came about, they decided to make the change over to a new cash crop: corn and strawberries.

Page Farms is still a proud family and would like to share the experience of a real working farm with you and your family.

Lanes at Gregory Vineyards

Tour, Tasting & Lunch at Gregory Vineyards

Over 30 years ago, the Gregory family took the first step toward making their dream of a destination restaurant in the heart of North Carolina a reality. Lane’s Seafood and Steakhouse opened its doors on Feb 7, 1987, on 140-acres of their family farm near McGee’s Crossroads. The Gregory family made sure every guest experienced a level of hospitality and quality that is rare to find. Looking forward to experiencing a fresh, delicious meal in this beautiful setting!

From vine to bottle, at Gregory Vineyards their locally grown grapes go into making some of the finest wines in NC. Gregory Vineyards was added to the farm in 2009. To date, their wines have won many awards and they are committed to pushing the envelope with new styles and seasonal special editions every year. Host your next shower, wedding, birthday party, or special event at Gregory Vineyards!

Broadslab Distillery

Tour & Tasting at Broadslab Distillery
NC Dinner & Networking at The Barn at Broadslab

Broadslab Distillery is North Carolina’s 1st “farm” distillery since prohibition and they take great pride in utilizing a true grassroots and hands on approach to operating their farm to bottle distillery. They’re proud to be one of the few distilleries in the world to grow the very grains on their farm that are used to manufacture their very unique, grain-to-glass whiskeys. The Broadslab Distillery in Benson makes legal moonshine. Jeremy Norris, Broadslab Distillery’s owner started this distillery producing a true, handcrafted, dirt to bottle, authentic moonshine using his Grandfather’s recipe as a way to diversify and produce a value added product utilizing the grains grown on the farm. Jeremy’s goal was to stay engaged in farming on a small scale by making it profitable at a time when small family farms were becoming unprofitable and fewer in numbers.

As the years have passed, they are continuing the tradition of producing authentic moonshine but they have also grown into producing some very fine bourbons and rye whiskeys. The Barn at Broadslab is a uniquely-Southern, rustic, yet elegant venue located in a wooded, tranquil setting alongside Broadslab Distillery. Located in rural Johnston County, The Barn at Broadslab has the space you need for your wedding or special event. Climate-controlled for use during any time of the year, The Barn at Broadslab is a captivatingly, beautiful setting that is perfect for creating memorable experiences. Nestled Pines is new to our farm and provides rental accomodations and additional event space.
