Agritourism Works in Good Times and Bad

    Farm owners and native citizens associated with boosting the prosperity of their particular local and regional economy and native farms may want to take Weston seriously.

    Agritourism is a branch of eco-tourism. Interestingly, when done properly, it flourishes when funds for travel are up, along with when funds for travel are incredibly low (explained more below).

    It's a given why local farms may wish to attract world travelers for their farms. You will want to enable the revenue that would go with a petro-guzzling chain resort instead be offered for a be in another farmhouse bedroom? Energy sources a number of the otherwise cruise ship tourist trap-destined travel bucks by hosting a regionally branded harvest festival or garden tour for that travelers who harbor nearby and wish to come onto land for authentic attractions?

    But in challenging times for travelers, the new agritourism is really a kind of responsible or eco-travel that still works.

    Agritourism is increasing quickly around the globe, then one exceptional model is in Skagit Valley, Washington State as well as on the valley's nearby San Juan Islands. Within the book, The New Agritourism (offered at the Skagit Valley Food Co-op, bookstores, and Amazon among other sources), I included a sampler of exemplary agritourism systems and destinations from around the globe. However it wasn't merely coincidence that home region was strongly represented. And here it serves as just one concrete example for all those seeking methods to support local food independence while assisting to reverse global warming and planing a trip to sights yet unseen closer to home.

    Because the renaissance for local small farms grows, and the price of food and travel heightens, humans have hit the jackpot if they'd like to combine local entertainment using a sense of connection to abundant local food sources. And in the Skagit Valley and nearby islands, there are so many choices year-round for agritourism day trips, workshops, tours, tastings, festivals or overnight stays, you can live a very long time here, and not discover their whereabouts all. The diverse natural surroundings from stunning alp-like mountains to fertile valleys to old-growth forests and emerald islands boast a massive array of agritourism events that other locations - whether desert or rolling hills or flat plains -- can model after. Here, locals can join CSA (community supported agriculture), stop off at micro grass-fed raw goat dairies to get their own milk, pull over to a number of tiny flower carts for a bouquet, milk dairy animals and luxuriate in u-pick autumn flower, pumpkin, ornamental gourd and apple harvests, tour organic vineyards, ranches and free-range laying hen farms, view artisan cheese-making, take courses on making your personal cheese, gather your own filberts, pick your own holly and xmas from small eco-responsible evergreen farms, take classes for cooking with lavender in the midst of lavender fields full of purple aroma, not to mention, enjoy the stunning fields and fun events during the world-famous tulip festival.
