Visit NC Farms App in Yadkin County: Everything You Need to Know to Join

Developed by a marketing team at the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Service, with the help from the NC Tobacco Trust Fund, it has set forth to have a full State-wide expansion to connect millions of visitors and residents to local farms & fisheries, local food & drink, farmers markets & u-pick, value-added through local shops, farm stays & lodging, tours & trails and special agricultural events all across the state! Using cell phone technology, these app users have full access to information that can connect them to the closest farm or activity that interests them. 

This Visit NC Farms App is still a pretty new app but it is making its impact on North Carolina. With more than half of the North Carolina counties represented within the app, it is truly highlighting everything North Carolina has to offer. From the sea to the mountains, and everything in between, visitors and residents have the opportunity to get the real Agriculture experiences that have characterized NC for years.

We want YOU to be included in this new and exciting marketing resource that is now available for businesses in Yadkin County. Help us show the many facets of agriculture and what makes our county so special!

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, the Visit NC Farms App may be perfect for you.

How does this app benefit you as a local business owner?

This is a great way to promote your business and to reach a broader audience. Potential app users are one click away from your farms/business description, pictures, phone number, website and directions to your business. This allows visitors to easily locate or contact you.

Have an event you want to promote? All you need to do as an asset is to keep the dedicated admins of the app informed and push notifications will go out to all the app users in the region.

Take a look at the information sheet that goes over the benefits and how to get involved: Yadkin County Visit NC Farms App Information sheet

Can you be a Sponsor and an Asset? Yes. 

If you want to sponsor a category within the app but also be an asset that can promote events, you will need to pay both the $50 and the $500. The sponsor’s name will stay unchanged under the category in the app but the asset itself can change throughout the year to highlight something new.

What exactly are those push notifications promised to assets?

Push notifications are a form of messaging that alerts all app users in that designated region to various promotions, special events, season changes etc.! They pop up as little messages on the app users phones and are a great way to get people interested and involved.
These push notifications are unlimited to assets, all we ask is that you keep the app administrators informed with clear communication on what you want!
This is a hands off app for assets to where all you need to do is provide us with the up-to-date information, pictures, and links you want on your profile as well as any push notifications and we do all the work for you!
Examples of Push Notifications sent out for Yadkin Assets:
A tour? Alpaca My Bags! Take a week day tour at Purple Alpaca LLC starting May 12th and sign-up for a mini-photo session to remember your new animal friends!
