Benefits of Agritourism

Agritourism is a business venture on a working farm, ranch or agricultural enterprise that offers educational and fun experiences for visitors while generating supplemental income for the owner. Visitors participate in friendly “discovery” and learning activities in natural or agricultural settings. Because it blends entertainment and education, agritourism is also known as “agrientertainment,” “agritainment” or “agrotourism.” Agritourism can provide many benefits to the agricultural producer: • Cash flow during the off-season • Opportunity to sell the “experience” of your agricultural venue • Opportunity to sell products grown and harvested in your agricultural operation • Opportunity to share your passion of agriculture with others
