Visiting a farm to see directly where your food comes from is a great way to strengthen your relationship with food and how it is grown. Here in Wisconsin, we have many opportunities to connect with your local farmers and learn more about the work they do.
“Agritourism” refers to the link between agricultural production and tourism. Pumpkin picking, corn mazes and apple picking are all examples of agritourism! Visiting a farm can be a great experience for everyone, especially kids. On a visit, you will have the opportunity to spend some time outdoors and learn about plants, animals, and what farmers do each day.
