Agritourism 101

An Introduction to Growing Tourism on the Farm

Presented by Marc Edwards, Agritourism Professional, University of Maine Cooperative Extension

Developing agritourism on the farm can generate potentially significant supplemental income.  This program is intended for new and existing farmers not currently  engaging in agritourism activities, but who may be considering developing agritourism on their farms. It will bring awareness of agritourism opportunities and the potential for farmers to benefit from developing agritourism on their farms.  After attending this program, participants will have a general understanding of agritourism, and be able to identify at least one potential agritourism activity on their farm. Participants will also be able to identify the first three basic steps towards developing agritourism on their farm.
