Clarkton NC: True Small Town Living

Clarkton was a tobacco town for many years. Warehouses and the smell of tobacco were prominent here, where tobacco buyers and the shout of the auctioneer filled the rows of beautifully cured tobacco in burlap sheets. Industry is still a big part of this small town with Gildan Yarns and EJ Cox Company. EJ Cox is a family-owned business and many local peanut farmers deliver to their plant. If you’ve ever had peanuts at a ballgame, chances are, they started at EJ Cox and with one of our local farmers. Agriculture has played a large part in the history of Clarkton NC real estate, as well as the entire county. Generations of families have enjoyed living on family farms and take great pride in the history their families have brought to the community.
