Jones County was founded in 1799 and has always been steeped in a hardworking farming tradition. Located in Southeastern North Carolina, Jones County is surrounded by fertile lands and creeks, while the Trent River meanders through the county. There is a lot of open space and forests on Jones County land, making it a popular area for timber companies and outdoor enthusiasts.
Jones County land is fertile and unspoiled, featuring North Carolina farms that produce tobacco (second in tobacco production in NC), soybeans, cotton, corn, barley and other crops. These North Carolina farms also maintain swine, turkey, chicken, beef cattle, and milk cows. Ag-related businesses and timber production companies provide most of the county’s revenue.
Residents of Trenton and the rest of Jones County enjoy a great quality of life with little congestion or pollution and with friendly neighbors. The scenic countryside and creeks along the Trent River offer endless opportunities for water sports, camping, hunting and fishing. The county features 40 miles of streams and 4,300 acres of lakes that is all part of the Croatan National Forest. Located a short distance from Swansboro marinas, charter boat and pier fishing are accessible activities as well.
