Jackson Farming Company has been growing and shipping some of North Carolina's finest fruits and vegetables since the early - 80's.  In 1986, a couple of local growers asked us to help them move some of their produce.  In 1986 Jackson Farming Company began it's journey to become one of North Carolina's finest marketers of farm fresh produce.

From harvest to your table, Jackson Farming Co. is dedicated to using the most modern and efficient means of production.  We were the first growers in North Carolina to have implemented a state-of-the-art mechanical cantaloupe grading line that cleans melons with chlorinated water and adds PLU stickers at the same time.  Showing our commitment to food safety, in 2013 we renovated our cantaloupe grading line using stainless steel.  We also completely enclosed the packing area. 

Pictured below you will see our cantaloupes taking their journey down the line.
