Find a North Carolina Agritourism Farm

Farm experiences are fun! Visiting a farm encourages learning and engagement. Memories are made and our children and
grandchildren learn about farm life in ways that are truly special.

Cultivating the next generation of North Carolina farmers is crucial to agriculture vibrancy in our state. Agritourism farms support economic stability in rural areas, contribute to environmental sustainability, promote and protect local food systems, and provide visitors with unique ways to learn about North Carolina farms.

Agritourism creates many new opportunities for farmers to strengthen the family farm and its connection to the public all while preserving the beautiful rural landscape of North Carolina.
