The objective of this project is to create an agri-based tourism marketing system for the 21 counties of western North Carolina to link the region’s small specialty farms to the region’s $20 million annual tourism base. The grant will be used to create and implement a multi-year marketing plan for countryside trails and farm tours, develop distinctive tour itineraries and tour products for sale, create a small business training program for small farm owners, and establish a tracking system to measure the economic impact of agri-tourism in the region.
