What is Agritourism?

Have you ever heard of agritourism? What exactly does it mean? Simply stated, agritourism is where the crossroads of agriculture and tourism meet to provide you with an amazing educational experience, whether it be a tour of a farm or ranch, a festival, or cheese-making class. Farmers, ranchers and wineries turn their land into a destination and open their doors to the public in order to teach more about what they do and their way of life. Additionally, agritourism provides educational opportunities to the public with hope to preserve agricultural lands.
