Farms and land in Accomack County provide something for everyone looking to purchase property. Located on the northernmost portion of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Accomack County land serves a thriving tourism industry fueled by world-class hunting, unspoiled ocean beaches and cultural history offerings including the Chincoteague Island Wild Ponies, Assateague Light and Eastern Shore Railway Museum. Set between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, commercial fishing is one of its historic industries as is agriculture. The 1,310-square-mile county is in the Atlantic Flyway, which makes waterfowl hunting a huge draw for the region. Farm land consists of 77,000 acres, and 71% of the agricultural sales are from livestock and poultry. Some of the crop land is converted into impoundments during the waterfowl season that brings Canada Geese and ducks within firing range. Hunters also bag deer and turkeys. The largest private employers include Perdue Products, Tyson Farms and the National Aeronautics & Space Administration. The population of the county is 33,000, and Accomack County Public Schools provides education for grades K-12. The Eastern Shore Community College offers higher learning opportunities.
