isit NC Farms is a statewide phone app created by the NC Department of Agriculture that focuses on promoting agritourism and local food businesses.
This handy tool helps tourists and residents that are interested in supporting local farmers and finding unique farm-based experiences locate U-Picks, farmers markets, farm stands, and attend farm-based activities. Visit NC Farms promotes participating farms to the public by offering directions to farms, operating hours, and other important details.
Buncombe County farms now have the option to join this helpful marketing tool thanks to the support of Buncombe County Soil and Water, Buncombe NC Farm Bureau Insurance, and the Buncombe Non-profit Farm Bureau Board.
Joining the App is completely free, and your farm listing provides another layer of marketing for your business.
Farms submit information about their farming operation, which is then transferred to the App using location-based technology to notify residents and visitors about events and where they can find farms. If you are interested in joining the App, please take a moment to fill out the questionnaire.
If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about Visit NC Farms, feel free to call or email the Buncombe County Agritourism Intern, Avni Naik, or 828-424-1969. More information can also be found on the Visit NC Farms website.
The official launch for Buncombe farms is slated for September, so don’t delay in taking advantage of free marketing for your farm!
