GETTING STARTED IN AGRITOURISM- A Cooperative Extension guide on to how to begin, what visitors expect, customer relations, income streams, liability, marketing and other useful resources

There is a great deal of interest in agritourism as a niche tourism sector for farms. People are looking for an authentic farm experience that might link them to their past or that teaches them something new. Visitors also want relief from the stress of everyday life to experience a seemingly simpler life. Farm visits offer a day in the country, where guests may pick berries, go for a hayride, sample
homegrown or homemade products, see animals, and learn how farms operate.
