Our most recent Agritourism Intensive Workshop was held August 1-2, 2015, with a full-day tour of Curtis Orchards, Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery, KD Ranch, and Sleepy Creek Vineyards, and another day of presentations on agritourism opportunities, marketing, legal issues, and more. The full agenda can be found here.

All of the information presented in our agritourism workshops can be adapted by a farmer anywhere in the United States to expand their agritourism horizons. Attendees explore the details of running agritourism operations by:
- Learning from agritourism experts about the opportunities for growth in the industry
- Walking through the risks and mitigation strategies of successful agritourism businesses with a farm law expert
- Observing the potential of an on-farm commercial kitchen and processing facility through both presentation and delicious meals provided by the farm’s chef
- Going on tours of successful agritourism operations in the region that will cover topics from start-up and capital access to pricing, regulation, infrastructure and personnel management
