North Carolina's agriculture is as varied as its topography, which includes the Appalachian Mountains in the west, the Piedmont plateau in the middle of the state, and the wide Coastal Plain to the east. According to Dr. Jeff Mullahey of North Carolina State University (NCSU), "North Carolina is the third most diverse agricultural state in the country..." He attributes this diversity to the wide-ranging changes in elevation, temperature, rainfall amount, and soil type across the state.
The Coastal Plain produces soft shell crabs and salmon. The Sandhills area of the Coastal Plain has flourishing peach orchards, while the rich, sandy soil of the Inner Coastal Plain is ideal for raising hogs and producing tobacco, cotton, grapes, sweet potatoes, and many row crops. It's home to the largest farms in the state - up to 15,000 acres. No matter the type of farm or land for sale you are searching for in North Carolina, you are sure to find your dream property at Farms USA.
The smaller farms and land for sale in the Piedmont region of North Carolina produce poultry and eggs, dairy products, row crops, and produce of all kinds. The higher elevation and colder temperatures of the mountain region create ideal conditions for trout production, as well as apples, turf grass, and nursery plants. Fraser firs thrive in the cool temperatures and form the backbone of Christmas tree farms.
An abundance of rivers and lakes throughout North Carolina provide plenty of water for farming, fishing, and recreational activities. Whether you prefer relaxing on a beach, saltwater fishing off the Outer Banks, boating on a lake, or fishing for trout in a mountain stream, North Carolina is guaranteed to have land or farms for sale that can accommodate your needs.
With nearly 48,000 farms covering more than 8 million acres, the average size of a farm for sale in North Carolina is 168 fertile acres. North Carolina farms produce more sweet potatoes and tobacco than any other state. They rank second as poultry and egg producers and third for trout and pork products.
Other important crops include soybeans, corn, cotton, hay, peanuts, wheat, produce, and nursery products. It's no wonder that farming contributes over $75 billion to North Carolina's economy each year.
If you're a newcomer to farming, the NC State Extension Service offers several beginning farmer resources to help you get off to a great start. They even have a list of incubator farms where you can get hands-on practice with farming skills.
