Agritourism combines traditional agricultural practices with unique experiences for visitors. Kansas agricultural producers realize the benefits of tailoring their operations to tourism. Tourists enjoy visiting Kansas farms, ranches, and wineries as well as participating in the rural lifestyle. These activities provide lifelong memories for tourists and additional revenue for Kansas farmers who host them.
Agritourism attracts tourists who participate in activities on a working farm, ranch, or at a lodge, outfitter, winery, or other agricultural operation. These activities might include outdoor recreation, activities educational experiences, or opportunities to shop, dine or stay in Kansas, all while supporting Kansas agricultural producers. These activities help to sustain the rural way of life and keep more producers on our Kansas lands.
Agricultural Businesses may not always equate to agritourism operations. To learn more about becoming an agritourism location, take a look at our Kansas Agritourism Manual or contact Kelsey Wendling, agritourism program Manager, to see if your operation is suitable for the program.
