What is Agritourism?

Agritourism is the business of establishing farms as destinations for education, recreation, and the purchase of farm products. A farm visitor could be from a city far away, or a neighboring town. Examples of agritourism include  farm tours, tastings, dinners-in-the-field, farm stays, workshops, festivals, and the direct sale of products through ‘pick-your-own’, Community Supported Agriculture, and many more.   Agritourism activities connect visitors to Vermont’s iconic working landscape.  

Farmers, use this site to develop thoughtful, fun experiences for your farm visitors.
