Pender farm finds new ways to keep education alive

BURGAW,NC (WECT)- For years, Old River Farms between Rocky Point and Burgaw, has been the site of educational trips for Pender County school kids. However, owner Dean Lanier says the industry can be tough to maintain.

So, Dean and his son Michael worked to grow their green house and start a garden center where they could sell flowers, vegetables and herbs. To celebrate the farm's new attraction, the family is hosting a festival Saturday, April 6, 2013.

There will be crafts, art, and woodworking vendors, live Bluegrass and gospel music as well as BBQ.

The event is from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at 8711 Old River Road, Burgaw, NC 28425.
