Agri-tourism can take many forms. Roadside stands and farmers’ markets offer farm-fresh produce and interaction with growers. Farms may open to the public for wildlife watching and hunting. Ag tours, on farm bed-and-breakfasts, and dude ranches give tourists the fresh air, open space, and relaxation of country life.

U-pick operations, pumpkin patches, Christmas tree farms, hay mazes, farm-animal petting zoos, wine tasting, ag heritage museums, festivals, and fairs all attract visitors.

High tunnel and greenhouse production of vegetable and fruit crops is a topic that producers have shown an interest in recently. Utilizing plastic structures allow producers to extend their season, both in spring and fall, and increase sales. High tunnel production programs have been conducted by Extension Agents in the region, giving producers access to the latest information on production and resources.
