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. Farms that diversify to include welcoming the public to the farm 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 even out the revenue stream, to strengthen the family farm and its connection to the public all while preserving the beautiful rural landscape of North Carolina.
