Join our conversation about agritourism in Louisiana. Informative information from the LSU AgCenter will be posted on the blog to assist agritourism professionals in developing or expanding their agritourism ventures.
In a recent post, I shared that Amelia Kent and a group of Swedish youth were touring America. Quite by accident Keller McKowen, husband of Roberta McKowen, met them while they were at the Richland Tractor Equipment store. Keller invited them to the farm and later learned that they had been following their farm's Herding Facebook page and Louisiana Ranchers
and Growers Association's page. The McKowen farm is in lambing season so that came to see.
These young Swedish women are touring the world examining Ag practices because they will take over their family businesses one day.
Roberta showed them fiber arts, cheese making and no till agriculture .
The Swedish Youth Farm Tour made a stop at Roberta McKowen, DVM's Grass Fed Lamb and Beef Agritourism Operation. They showcased , Louisiana Ranchers
and Growers Association, farm management strategies promoting wildlife and
sustainable soil; and diversified income streams through agritourism.
