082511 - Agritourism Offers Opportunities for Farmers, Visitors Alike

Aug 25, 2011, WI Farm Bureau

A lot of people may have never heard the term “agritourism,” even though it’s becoming more and more likely they’ve participated in it. Agritourism is basically any activity that brings visitors to a farm or ranch. 

Sabrina Matteson, American Farm Bureau Federation community development specialist, said agricultural tourism has become an important alternative for improving the incomes and potential economic viability of small farms and rural communities. 

“The growth of agritourism is really important for both the consumer and farmers and ranchers because it’s an opportunity for the consumer to see how food, fuel and fiber are created and it gives an opportunity for farmers and ranchers to share their story,” Matteson said.
