Agritourism Development and Education


From hosting farm stays and events to growing crops for pick-your-own, an increasing number of farms in New Hampshire are finding creative ways to welcome visitors to their properties. Agritourism can be a fun and rewarding way to diversify income, but can also lead to new business challenges. UNH Cooperative Extension offers a variety of resources to help farmers, business owners, and destination communities create safe, enjoyable, and memorable farm-based experiences for visitors.
