Currituck County’s undeveloped rural land is perfect for farming, agriculture, and food production through commercial land development. This includes arable land, which includes annual crops and land that is temporarily fallow.
Land for permanent crops such as orchard and vineyards; and permanent pastures for natural grasses and grazing of livestock, are also available in the region.
Located on coastal North Carolina, Currituck County has direct access to the Atlantic Ocean as well as several bays between the Outer Banks and mainland. The Outer Banks is continually ranked among the top 10 beaches in the United States. Warmer waters and undeveloped beaches make the Outer Banks one of the most visited beaches on the east coast and in the country.
If your business involves boats or water, Currituck County is the right fit for you. The warm summers, mild winters, and access to multiple bodies of water makes Currituck the best location on the east coast for anything nautical.
Currituck County is proud of our centuries-long reputation as a "Sportsman's Paradise." Our beautiful backyard make us the perfect location for waterfowl and game hunting.

Thousands of acres of wildlife refuge land also makes us an ideal spot for birders, bikers and paddlers of all kinds.
Currituck County welcomes athletes and sports fans of all ages.
