HIGH POINT, N.C. — Agritourism is a new trend at farms across the state. Fewer people live on farms than ever before in N.C., so families like to visit farms to learn about what they are like.
FOX8’s Shannon Smith visited Ingram’s Strawberry farm in High Point. In addition to pick your own strawberries, they have a big glass bee hive display, chickens and tractor rides.
