Is agritourism right for your small farm?

Event information

Date

Add to Calendar 2021-09-23 13:00:00 2021-09-23 17:00:00 Is agritourism right for your small farm? Do you dream of having a destination small farm where children explore corn mazes, groups of friends gather to eat wood-fired pizza and drink cider from your own apple trees, or families come to spend a weekend to experience life in the country? Lots of planning and research needs to happen before you can realize your dream. From market research to zoning laws, you must consider food safety, business planning and accessing land before you invest capital and time and potentially change your family's life for years to come. Learn from experts about zoning, safety and business planning. A panel of farmers and farm business owners who host the public will answer your questions. And we will visit and tour a successful agritourism-based business. We might even sample their products after the event! Sapsucker Farms Sapsucker Farms Sapsucker Farms America/Chicago public
