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.
