The West Coast is at Alert Level 2. COVID-19 Business Support
Calling all West Coast farmers!
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 workshop is an interactive and informative complimentary two-hour workshop 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.
