Major Industries


Currituck County is home to key industries that thrive thanks to our strategic Mid-Atlantic location, our world-famous natural resources and our proximity to Virginia and the North Carolina Research Triangle.   

Currituck has a wealth of sustainable natural resources (in our case - great soil, warm weather, ample sunshine and wind) and is situated close to major markets. This allows us to harvest a local crop and make a product that can be enjoyed by both locals and visitors.

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.

Thousands of acres of wildlife refuge land also makes us an ideal spot for birders, bikers and paddlers of all kinds.
