The New Agritourism
The New Agritourism, Hosting Community and Tourists on Your Farm, by Barbara Berst Adams.
Farmers worldwide have rediscovered a new crop: agritourism. From lavender micro farms to large corn acreages, some farmers are finding that by opening their farms to non-farming citizens, even for just a few weekends a year, they can receive a serious boost in revenue. Further, the general public begins to reconnect with the depth of farming again, which encourages them to offer and demand support for fair treatment of their local farms. This title takes readers interested in their own agritourism project from the origins of new agritourism today and on to gathering agritourism ideas beyond the general cookie cutter varieties that are unique and authentic to their farms. It then shows how to focus and organize their plan, keep it safe and legal, promote the enterprise, and continue to progress and stay prosperous in the years to come. The voices of many real farmers are heard here. Further, this title deeply profiles several very diverse agritourism working farms.
The author has covered essentially all of the possibilities for agritourism. We expect that reading The New Agritourism would greatly enhance the odds for successful establishment and operation of an agritourism business. (HortIdeas)
