What is Agritourism?

Agritourism refers to the activity of visitors touring and engaging with agriculturally focused sites and activities such as farms, hayrides, pick-your-own, corn mazes and more. Visitors have an incredible opportunity to see where fruits and vegetables, cheese, milk and more come from. Both educational and exciting, agritourism provides unique, family-friendly fun for country and city-folk alike.
