Calling all West Coast farmers - express your interest now for a workshop in 2022.

Agritourism is a growing industry worldwide and there is plenty of opportunity on the West Coast for agriculture businesses to diversify into the agritourism sector.

This session is an interactive and informative complimentary two-hour information session for farmers to learn about the opportunities to diversify into the tourism sector.

A survey looking into the attitudes towards food and farming, conducted at New Zealand’s inaugural national Open Farms day in 2020, showed that visiting a farm builds urban-rural trust and support for sustainable farming.

Topics covered:

  • Agritourism opportunities and trends
  • How to increase revenue from your agritourism venture
  • Five keys to agritourism business success
