Abstract

Agritourism is a value added agricultural activity. In North Carolina, it has influenced agriculture since 1940 with about 196 farms that practice agritourism currently. An analysis of top ten counties that offer Agritorism in North Carolina is carried out and the factors that affect adoption of Agritourism among the counties is regressed using Multiple Linear regression. The study observed that out of the 100 registered Agritourism county operations, the top 10 leading counties in North Carolina that offer Agritourism with the largest number of Agritourism recorded operations is located in Mecklenburg County, while the smallest number was found in New Hanover, Tyrell, Hyde, Jones, Gates, Washington, and Pamlico County (Table 1 & 2). The study also suggested that farm cash receipts and the number of farms per county are the variables that are found significant concerning Agritourism adoption.
