Jackson Farming Company, founded in 1981, is a family-owned and operated business, located in the heart of Sampson County near Fayetteville, NC. We grow, pack, ship, and broker fresh fruits and vegetables year round.

Jackson Farming Company is dedicated to serving you in any way we possibly can. Brent and Debbie Jackson and their sons share in the responsibility of turning a family farm into a successful and competitive agribusiness.

In 1997, Brent and Debbie were fortunate to have their oldest son, Rodney, follow in his dad's footsteps as he became general manager of the JFC farming operation. Youngest son Josh is learning all aspects of the farming and fruit and vegetable produce business. In summer of 2008 Josh is accepting the role and responsibility as Warehouse Manager.

Over the years, the Jackson's have had to overcome several obstacles and setbacks. First, a hail storm in 1992 wiped out their large cantaloupe crop. Then in the fall of 1999, the farm was hit with two hurricanes that wiped out their entire fall crop harvest.

The most devastating loss, though, was the sudden death of their second son, Adam, in March of 2001 in a tragic car accident. A graduating senior, Adam had already been accepted to attend North Carolina State University and study agricultural business.

Adam's Memorial Scholarship
In an effort to honor and memorialize their love for their son, the Jackson's have created the Adam Brent Jackson Memorial Scholarship Endowment at North Carolina State University. To learn more about how Adam's love for sports resulted in a unique donation to his scholarship endowment and how you can help them meet their goal, please go to Adam's Memorial Scholarship.

The newest addition to the family is Nicholas Jackson. The son of Rodney and Melissa Jackson. Pictured is Nicholas, age 1, and Jordan, age 4.
