Mt. Olive


Mt. Olive, North Carolina is located in Wayne County in the southeastern part of NC. While part of Mt. Olive crosses into adjacent Duplin County, Wayne carries the bulk of the developed land mass and the largest segment of population. That population of approximately 4,442 is a help in supplying the town's biggest employer with staff -- Mt. Olive boasts the world famous Mt. Olive Pickle Company. The company's two0tone green jars and the crispy crunchy pickles inside are well known; and what better place to locate the factory than at the corner of Cucumber and Vine Streets. With the support and assistance of the community of Mount Olive, the Mount Olive Pickle Company holds The Mount Olive Pickle Festival the last full weekend of April each year.

Opportunities for higher education abound in the area. Within 60 miles of Mt. Olive are 4 Universities including North Carolina State University at Raleigh; Local Wayne County Community College, and two other community colleges plus the Wake Technical College. The town of Mt. Olive itself is home to the Mt. Olive College, a private liberal arts college sponsored by the Convention of Original Free Will Baptists. Its major bachelor degree programs include business, protective services, recreation and fitness, visual and performing arts and theology.

Not only do pickles pour from Mt Olive’s industrial business section, but so do turkeys from Carolina Turkey Company, and furniture from the Boling Furniture Company. Timber and wood products from Georgia-Pacific are the major employment provider in the area although most of the local plant operations are outside of Mt. Olive proper. Timber, OSB products, plywood and wood chips are produced by the four GP plants.
