Agriculture

We are proud to have agriculture represent a major component of our local economy.  With more than 1,200 farms averaging over 250 acres each, it is no surprise to learn that Sampson County is North Carolina's most productive county.  In fact at 320,000+ acres, more than half of the entire county's land is used for agricultural purposes.

And it isn't just family farms in Sampson County, some of the area's largest employers are in the agriculture and food processing industry.  Companies like Prestage Farms and Smithfield Foods employ more than 12% of the workforce.
