Visit NC Farms

What is the Visit NC Farms app?

The Visit NC Farms app allows locals and tourists alike to find farms and businesses selling local foods and high-quality experiences! Downloading the app onto a smartphone allows the public to find your farm easily and interactively!

Why should I list my farm/business on the Visit NC Farms app?

  • Showcasing your farm on the app allows you to reach a broader audience of potential customers and repeat patrons.
  • You’ll be listed among an expansive and ever-growing collection of agriculture-based offerings.
  • With both a map and a list view, users will be able to easily find the farm closest to them or filter based on offerings.
  • Your farm listing will feature a summary, engaging imagery, and push-button shortcuts to call, visit your website, or get directions.
  • User and member feedback ensures that the app stays relevant and up-to-date.
  • Your farm listing gives you access to real-time marketing opportunities through push notifications to app users.

How is the app promoted?

  • Each community has access to marketing materials including posters, banner stands, buttons, stickers, and window clings. Website badges are created for participating sites.
  • The app is promoted by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Marketing Division. Welcome and Visitor Centers across the state, the State farmers markets and other statewide venues will share the app messaging.
  • Being a part of the app is cooperative advertising. Each farm or community partner also promotes the app to their lists and followers so your audience grows exponentially.
  • North Carolina Farm Bureau is supporting this effort across the state.
  • As the app grows, the marketing efforts will expand as well!

2024 Program Information for Haywood County Farms & Businesses

This year, we are heavily promoting the Visit NC Farms app by supporting business assets with high-quality profiles in the app, giving our ‘useful swag’ to our local foods businesses engaged in the app, and marketing at local farmer’s markets and online with social media!

This is a FREE program for your farm or business!

How do I let someone know I am interested in being listed on the Visit NC Farms app?

If you are interested in being listed in the Visit NC Farms app, please fill out our online form. An app administrator will contact you to set up your farm/business visit!

What do I get for participating in 2024?

All assets will have the option to receive a short (under 15-minute) photo shoot to add high-quality photos to their listings. Between 6-10 edited photos will be presented on a flash drive or Google Photos. These are yours to use on social media and marketing materials!

Assets will also receive ‘useful’ Visit NC Farms swag to promote the app and their involvement. SWAG giveaways are while supplies last and all swag items can be purchased separately by contacting the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Haywood County Center. Different assets will receive appropriate items as listed below:
