Wholesale operations at the Food Hub saw great success in the first half of 2021 with product sales that sent $120,000 straight back to farmers in Southeastern NC.
Summer of 2021 has been going well for farmers. We certainly have not had perfect weather but we have had weather just good enough to see large harvests coming in. More customers than ever are placing large orders with us.
Farmers are starting to seed plan for the fall so we are currently analyzing our spring product sales in order to provide them with what items will potentially be the most popular in the fall.
The Food Hub was recently visited by the NC Dept. of Ag for a routine inspection and our facility passed with flying colors.

Kornegay Hereford Farms and Farm Store
In the upper part of Duplin County, and tucked next to the bottomlands of Goshen Swamp, Kornegay Hereford Farms has continued the 1949 heritage of producing rich foods from the land under the watchful eye of second-generation farmer Karen Scalf.
Focused on growing grass-efficient high fertility Hereford cattle that produce the highest quality, best tasting beef anywhere in the US, while providing local health and farm profitability, Kornegay Hereford Farms is all about the beef. That starts with the pasture though, and Scalf believes that grasses and the soil are the key to the production of her product. Using the cattle to improve the soil, the results are better cattle genetics, tastier beef, and a healthier community.
Since January 2021, Kornegay Hereford Farms has completely renovated an old tobacco barn on the farm to create a stunning Farm Store where consumers can pick up online orders, shop for grass-fed beef, pasture-raised pork, pasture poultry, country ham, fresh eggs, local produce, ‘from the farm kitchen’ baked goods, local arts and gifts, and more!
Located at 1940 Tram Road, Mt Olive, NC 28365, the Farm Store is currently open Tuesday through Friday from 10 am until 6 pm and Saturday 9 am until 12 pm.
.Come on by. But don’t be in a hurry. Enjoy a cup of coffee, a fresh cookie or two, and enjoy our wraparound seating area where you can watch our herd, check on the chickens, or just relax.
