Pitt County Voluntary Agricultural Districts

Enrollment is Now Open!


The State of North Carolina passed the Farmland Preservation Enabling Act in 1985, authorizing counties to establish farmland preservation programs, including agricultural districts. Pitt County adopted the Voluntary Agricultural District Ordinance establishing procedures for creating Voluntary Agricultural Districts in 2013. The purpose of the ordinance is to promote the preservation of farmland in Pitt County so that development and growth will be accompanied by protection of farms from non–farm development and other negative impacts on properly managed farms, recognizing the importance of agriculture to the economic and cultural life of the county.

Voluntary Agricultural Districts Promote the Pride and Tradition of Pitt County Agriculture. Pitt County’s Voluntary Agricultural District Program enhances the identity of the agricultural community by encouraging the voluntary preservation and protection of farmland from non-farm development.
