Are you the owner or operator of a farm, pick-your-own farm, farmers market, local food & drink establishment, local shopping destination, farm stay, or local lodging? Does your business offer tours, trails, or special events you want to promote? If so, we have a great opportunity for you.

The “Visit NC Farms” Mobile App is a new and exciting way for Alexander County residents and visitors to discover farms, local food, markets, retail outlets, restaurants, venues, and events with the touch of their fingertips. Through support from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Alexander County Government and N.C. Cooperative Extension, this app will allow your business to reach a broader audience of potential customers and repeat patrons by:

  • Listing your operation among an expansive and ever-growing database of agricultural-based offerings and other local businesses.
  • Including a map and list view that allows users to easily find the farm or business closest to them or search local businesses based on product preference.
  • Featuring a brief summary, engaging imagery, push to call buttons, links to your website, and directions to your physical location.
  • Providing an app administrator that processes all user and member feedback to ensure the app stays a functional, up-to-date, and effective tool for marketing your operation while collecting customer comments and analytics.
