Member Testimonials

"I attended my first meeting and I'm glad I did! It was impressed with the leadership of the organization, particularly the topics that were being discussed that are very important to agricultural business owners. I looked around and there were a wide variety of farm enterprises there. It is a very welcoming environment. I had a member tell me to call her if I needed a resource on how to start a baking business. I did and the information has been very helpful in guiding us through the challenges! I think it's important to learn from each other and I feel this organization will help us all do this together and promote Michigan agriculture." --Julie Frost, The Frosty Apple

Our relationship with Michigan Agritourism was most helpful this year. The resources available within this group provided extremely beneficial when working through some Agritourism-related zoning concerns with our local township. Their understanding of the rules and knowledge of how similar businesses are handled in other localities was irreplaceable. - John Behrens, Farmhaus Cider, Hudsonville
