Join us to hear from an expert panel on how and why farmers might look to develop a quality and sustainable agri-tourism business

About this event

Agri-tourism is a growing form of tourism worldwide. In the past, agri-tourism may have been viewed as synonymous with ‘farm tourism’, but it is now recognised as much broader than that; Agri-tourism incorporates a diverse range of experiences that provide opportunities for tourists to connect with primary producers and the agricultural settings in which they live and work.

Agri-tourism can have many benefits for operators and visitors. For farmers and other primary producers, agri-tourism offers an opportunity to diversify and create supplementary income and share their way of life, products and stories with people from all over the world. At the same time, increasingly visitors are looking to escape urban environments to connect with the land and the people who work and live there, to hear stories, participate in activities, and learn about the origins of their food and fibre.

Join us to hear from an expert panel on how and why farmers and other primary producers are looking to develop sustainable agri-tourism businesses, and hear about strategies for success, and examples of innovative agri-tourism experiences of appeal to the domestic and international market.
