Our agritourism workshops have received rave reviews from past attendees. We are excited to hold our next one on March 19-20, with our partners at Valentine Hill Farm in Zionsville, Indiana.
All of the information presented in the workshop can be adapted by a farmer anywhere in the United States to expand their agritourism horizons, and the workshop highlights some of the great agritourism destinations in the Indianapolis region. Attendees will 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 Indy region that will cover topics from start-up and capital access to pricing, regulation, infrastructure and personnel management
The cost of the Agritourism Intensive Workshop is $200.00 for both days, or $125.00 for just one of the two days. The cost includes all meals, tastings, and the tours. Scholarships are available. To inquire about scholarships, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org before registering.
A handful of rooms are available at Valentine Hill Farm for those traveling long-distance to come to the workshop. Please contact Jeff Hake at The Land Connection for further details.
