Who is in it?
As of June 2019, the app represents 14 of North Carolina’s 100 counties. These early adopters are helping the app gain users and valuable data. As we head into the fall growing season, we are excited to see people using the app to visit corn mazes, pick pumpkins, find fresh, local products and visit farms open to the public in these areas.
We are growing!
The Visit NC Farms App is a statewide effort. Our goal is to have all 100 counties represented and attract visitors to our great state. Nearly 51 Million people visit North Carolina each year — and we want them to know about our great agritourism opportunities across the state and see parts of North Carolina that are off the beaten path.
Nestled in the rolling foothills of North Carolina, between Asheville and Charlotte, Cleveland County is home to large commercial fruit, animal and grain operations, as well as diversified small family farms. With plentiful farm-to-table restaurants, vineyards and wineries, roadside stands, farmers markets, and nurseries and gardens, there is always something to explore in Cleveland County!
Lee County, well-centered in the beautiful and vibrant Sandhills region of North Carolina, is home to numerous family-friendly agritourism attractions, farm-to-table restaurants, extraordinary venues, breweries, pick-your-own operations and local family shops. From expansive farmers markets and roadside stands to vineyards and nurseries, Lee County has something to offer everyone each season of the year.
From farm to table restaurants to pick-your-own farms and barn wedding venues, Orange County, which is located between Research Triangle Park and the Triad, is home to a vibrant agritourism scene.
Home to Kerr Lake, the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi River, the Kerr-Tar region is known for tobacco, cattle, strawberries, and pumpkins.
Johnston County (JoCo to the locals), 30 minutes east of Raleigh, is far enough away from the urban areas of the Triangle to offer visitors the charm of small-town living, but close enough to be accessible!
Known as the “Home of Golf,” centrally located Moore County burrowed in the North Carolina Sandhills, has many agritourism adventures and venues for you to discover. Moore County is also home to Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen.
The High Country
Sitting atop the highest elevations in North Carolina’s northern Blue Ridge Mountains, this region is a winter sports haven. But High Country towns like Boone and Blowing Rock delight in every season, with rhododendron hikes in spring, mile-high adventure in summer and brilliant foliage in fall.
