The app has two main user groups: Agribusinesses and Customers.

If you are a Agribusiness in the app you can post photos of your farm/market/nursery/restaurant, create events through your local Admin, add the products you sell, and link your social media and web pages to your listing. As a business you can contact your local App Administrator and schedule push notifications. These are the best part about the app for the farm! All users of the app will receive push notifications directly to their mobile device based on their preferences in the app! As a farm you can notify customers on the app of sales, events, seasonal items in your shop, and much more. To list a business in the app it costs $50/yr.

If you are a Customer in the app that just means you don’t have a business listing, but use the app on your mobile device. You participate for FREE. Customers in the app can use the search function to find local farms selling the products they want or the map function to find agribusinesses geographically. For example, a customer may search for “apples” within 50 miles. This request would show them all of the farm businesses who sell fresh apples within 50 miles of them. Customers opt in to receive push notifications from farms and check them out if they are interested!

If you would like to download the app you can find it on the Visit NC Farms App webpage. It will direct you to the App Store or Google Play Store where you can download the app. Download it today for FREE, take a look around & discover something new!
