Agriculture is a thriving industry in the Boone area, with plenty of opportunities for visitors to experience NC High Country farms for themselves. Learning is made fun at a working alpaca farm or between the rows of an heirloom apple orchard or a producing vineyard. Picking berries and flowers fresh from the field is a breeze surrounded by the fresh air of the mountains in the summertime. Fall is full of exciting and spooky events on pumpkin farms and corn mazes in the area. In the winter, agritourism experiences continue with opportunities to search for the perfect Christmas Tree around the holidays.
