Are You Participating in “THE VISIT NC FARMS” App?
It was developed by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in 2017, and the purpose of this app is to connect local residents and visitors to farmers and locally grown products from across the state.
As of March 2020, the app has grown to represent over 30 of North Carolina’s 100 counties. People are using the app to find fresh, local products and visit farms that are open to the public in the local area. The Kerr-Tar Council of Governments has partnered with their regions, North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Tourism, and the Economic Development Offices to virtually connect the Franklin, Granville, Person, Vance and Warren Counties with their agritourism community.
Users can explore through sections such as Farmers Markets, Farm and Fisheries, Farms Stays and Local Food to name a few. There are directions provided for Android and iPhone users.
