NCDA&CS seeks agritourism farms, vineyards
for ‘Discover North Carolina Farms’ map

RALEIGH – Owners of agritourism farms and vineyards in North Carolina are encouraged to apply to be on a map being developed by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

The full-color map will be titled “Discover North Carolina Farms.” The department plans to print 100,000 copies in 2009 and place them at welcome centers and other tourism offices across the state.

“Agritourism farms and vineyards have sprouted across North Carolina, and this map is another way to let people know where they are,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “The map can be kept in the glove compartment of your car for easy use on day trips or longer vacations. It will be a great resource, so we encourage agritourism farm and vineyard owners to apply to be on it.”

Applications must be postmarked by Jan. 9, and space on the map is limited. For information and an application, log on to www.ncagr.gov/agritourism or call Martha Glass at (919) 733-7887, ext. 276.

The map is funded by a grant from the Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.
