Ray Evans and his father had often discussed the idea of building a guest ranch one day, but it wasn't until after a weekend ride with some friends that Ray turned that idea into a reality. In 2006, Circle E Guest Ranch was born out of Ray's desire to provide quality accommodations and a rewarding trail-riding experience for all to enjoy. Today, Circle E Guest Ranch has grown to become one of the nation's premier trail riding destinations. To learn more, visit

JoCo BWST: Deep River Brewing Company

Known as Johnston County's first LEGAL brewery, Deep River Brewing Company has since become a staple for locals.

Housed in a building that once served as a cotton spinning mill, this historic space has been brought back to life by utilizing old barn wood on the walls, mason jar lights, and whiskey barrels for tables.

With a dedication and commitment to their community, many of their beers include locally sourced vegetables, fruits, hops, and grain.
