>C & G Designs – Local Produce Stand

Driving back to town on Hwy 17 to NC 43, I saw fresh vegetables and stopped at C & G Design’s local produce stand. Carol Taylor, owner, picks their produce every morning from four of their gardens.

I only stopped for 10 minutes and everyone that drove by either waved or honked. Carol believes in neighbors taking care of neighbors. I asked her about the “Good Ole Days” Farm around the corner on Hwy 17 and she was happy to tell me about the two mules that people stop to feed. She said they have hayrides in the fall and it’s a great place to bring your kids. She also told me to visit White’s Farm, south of her stand on Hwy 17. Carol’s southern charm was very welcoming and she seemed to be having a great time in the Eastern NC heat. Talk about hard work!

The current produce available is Rattlesnake (green) beans, zucchini and squash, cucumbers, red and green tomatoes, mixed salad, bell peppers, collards, cabbage, and bottled hot peppers. Corn and potatoes will be ready in a couple of weeks followed by apples, plums, grapes, and blueberries. Canned products are also available upon request.

Visit C & G Designs Produce Stand next time your on NC 43 (near the Hwy 17 split) and purchase some fresh vegetables! For more information, please call Carol at 252-229-0246.
