From pick-your-own orchards and farm stays to corn mazes and other farm-based visitor activities, you don’t have to look far in New Hampshire to find an array of agritourism offerings. Agritourism has been on the rise and many farm owners and operators are exploring how agritourism may add to their bottom line.

Curious to learn more about the big picture of agritourism in New Hampshire? Collaborators at Penn State and the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development, along with partners from the University of Vermont, University of Maine, and Oklahoma State University, have compiled fact sheets for each U.S. state outlining agritourism participation statistics, generated income, common types of offerings and direct sale products, and operator demographics.

If you’re considering starting an agritourism operation or wondering how your existing business compares to others in New Hampshire or in other states, these fact sheets offer some of the most current and reliable data and information that is publicly available.

This project was funded in in part by the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) and the Agricultural Marketing Resource Center (AgMRC) at Iowa State University.
