Agritourism defines the places where agriculture and tourism connect. Anytime a farming operation opens its doors to the public and invites visitors to enjoy their products and services--that's agritourism.
Agriculture and tourism are Michigan’s top two economic drivers. Agritourism provides a way for farmers to diversify their their offerings, helping to protect against challenging weather conditions and market fluctuations. By offering value-added products and activities at their business, farmers are better able to sustain their family farms.
Agritourism also offers the opportunity for the public to connect with local agriculture and experience a taste of farm life and fresh, local foods. What better way to learn about local agriculture than to meet the farmers that grow your food and enjoy a beautiful day outdoors.
