The agritourism label is surprisingly broad and it may even apply to you, and you don’t even know it!

Common types of Agritourism in our area:

Pick-your-own operations, Corn mazes, Roadside stands/farm stores, Wedding venues, Agricultural school tours, Farmers market events, Bed & breakfasts, Farm tours, Hay mazes/hay rides, Farm-to-table events, Incidental hunting activities, Christmas tree farms, honey and local beef, pork & lamb producers, Winery & vineyard tours, Cider-making & cidery tours, Festivals & special events

Adam and Rachel own and operate Frostmore Farm. They started this business in 2014 with a maple syrup operation and honey. The maple business has grown, the bees have gone, and now they also operate a U-Pick blueberry operation and have an Airbnb at their farm. They attended the International Workshop on Agritourism in September 2022 and wanted to share the information they learned there.
