Advertise Your Farm!

Owners of Agritourism farms and vineyards there is a unique opportunity to get your business advertised through the NCDA&CS.

Those who are interested can get their farm listed on a map of agritorism destinations that will be compiled by the NCDA&CS and funded by the Tobacco Trust Fund Commission. The full color map will be entitled "Discover North Carolina Farms" and 100,000 copies will be printed in 2009 and placed at welcome centers and tourism offices statewide.

“Agritourism farms and vineyards have sprouted across North Carolina, and this map is another way to let people know where they are,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “The map can be kept in the glove compartment of your car for easy use on day trips or longer vacations. It will be a great resource, so we encourage agritourism farm and vineyard owners to apply to be on it.”

Applications must be postmarked by Jan. 9, and space on the map is limited. Visit the Agritoursim Site or call Martha Glass at 919.733.7887 ext. 276 for more information.

In these hard times, what better way to increase business to your farm than by marketing! Don't miss this unique opportunity.
