Agritourism is one of the fastest growing segments of the agriculture industry. This growth can be attributed in part to the increasing interest in buying and eating locally grown products. People are also more interested in healthy food choices including produce grown on our Kentucky farms.
Today most people have little to no direct connection to farm life. Agritourism gives people an opportunity to better understand the skill and hard work that goes into producing food. Many children think that tomatoes come from the local grocery store. Educating school children, incorporating tour groups and hosting civic events are all part of helping to return more of the local consumer dollar directly to our farm families in a fun and recreational way.
The Gateway Agritourism Association invite you to visit our agritourism attractions for some fun on the farm.
