Dear farming and agri-tourism community,

NC State Viticulture Portal

NC State Strawberry Portal

We are listing COVID-19 related resources and information in following categories:

‘Community Support’; ‘Food Safety’; ‘Labor’; ‘Supply Chains’; ‘Financial Aid’; ‘Alternative Sales’; ‘Automation/Mechanization’.

We have added three NEW categories:

  • Updates on opening hours and restriction in farmers markets in NC
  • Updates on opening hours and restrictions on N.C. Cooperative Extension County Centers
