The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services recently announced it is starting a program that will help tourists in the state locate farms that are open to visitors. The office will offer road signs to operations that will advertise their presence to travelers.
"Our state's agritourism farms are great community resources, entertaining visitors while also sharing our agricultural heritage and showcasing the importance of farming in our state," Ag Commissioner Steve Troxler said.
Farmers who want to get a sign will need to fill out a membership for the Goodness Gross program. Furthermore, a separate application, along with a $20 fee, is required to get the sign itself. They will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Agritourism is popular across the country as farms open their doors to the public. Fall may be an especially appropriate time to visit these producers because many are getting ready to haul in their crops from this year's production efforts.
