Happy National Farmers Market Week

Dallas, NC


Family run for OVER ninety years, Lineberger Farms is located close to Dallas, North Carolina, along Dallas-Stanley Highway. A stop at the farm is sure to be fun for the whole family including the kiddos (of any age). The country store sells farm fresh vegetables and fruits including peaches, tomatoes and blackberries as well as other products like delicious jams, homemade baked good, peach salsa, and local honey. Grab your goodies and make the most of your time by creating a picnic for yourself at one of the covered picnic areas onsite.
