Nick Augostini, Marketing Specialist


The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is proud to work with our fruit and vegetable industry and promote the many wonderful crops they grow. With North Carolina's ideal location, our farm fresh produce can reach 65% of the US population within 24 hours.

The North Carolina fruit and vegetable industry generated an estimated $392 million in farm income last year. This industry provides employment for many of our state's citizens and is an important source of income for many rural families. Last year. there were approximately 16,000 acres of fruits and 213,000 acres of vegetables grown in our state. Our overall agricultural production is the third most diverse in the country.
