Experience Gaston County: Grown. Raised. Caught. Made.

The Visit NC Farms Phone app, developed by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, connects millions of North Carolina residents and visitors to farmers and local food – one community at a time and Gaston County is now one of those places.

Using cell phone technology, residents and visitors can find farms closest to them with products and activities that interest them. Visitors can use the app to explore farms, farmers markets and local restaurants that are off the beaten path and unique to our destination.

The Visit NC Farms app instantly connects our partners’ businesses to people who are interested in uniquely local experiences and building relationships with individually owned and operated enterprises

If it’s grown, raised, caught, or made in North Carolina, it can be featured in the app.
