Old River Farms holds its first Barbeque festival this weekend


Burgaw, NC (WWAY)-- Old River Farms held its very first barbeque festival this weekend.
The event kicked off Friday night with 23 participants in the barbeque cook off.
Saturday and Sunday the farm will be holding at least 40 craft vendors and live music.
Dean Lanier owns this working farm and uses big festivals like this one to draw people out to it.

Lanier said,"We really enjoy sharing our farm. And we have so many people say, Dean we just love coming out to the farm, its so peaceful. And they also comment on how neat and clean the farm is and they just enjoy coming to the farm, seeing the animals."

Lanier says they plan on doing another festival sometime in the fall once the summer ends.
