From visiting a farmers' market or winery to spending a week working cattle on a ranch or taking a farm tour, agritourism is an opportunity for the state's farmers and ranchers. A workshop to explore the opportunities will be held on March 3 in Colorado Springs.
"Agritourism is a growing segment of the agriculture industry in Colorado and across the nation," said Wendy White, marketing specialist at the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
The full-day workshop is at the El Paso County Household Hazardous Waste Facility in Colorado Springs. The registration fee is $20 per person, which includes lunch and resource materials. The registration deadline is Feb. 29. The workshop features sessions on liability, marketing, price development, available resources, and a panel discussion with agritourism business owners.
