Every year for the last forty years the Town of Richlands has hosted its Farmer’s Day Celebration on the first Saturday after Labor Day in honor of its agrarian heritage.

Cruise over to Mike’s Farm for hayrides, tours, and a snack from the bakery, or take a leisurely drive through town to admire the handsome 19th century estates, shop at a country store, and discover the Onslow County Museum.
