Agritourism Intensive Course starts Nov. 15, Sacramento
A class for Sacramento region farmers and ranchers offered by UC Cooperative Extension Sacramento County, Sacramento County Farm Bureau, and the UC ANR Small Farm Program
Are you considering agritourism or nature tourism on your farm or ranch? Would you like to build your agritourism or nature tourism business?
This class is for you!
Local agritourism operators will share their own experiences and will be part of a supportive network of advisors as class participants plan and start new enterprises.
Participants will learn from experts in business planning, regulatory compliance, risk management, hospitality and cost-effective marketing, including social media.
The hands-on, interactive activities will guide participants as they assess their own farms or ranches for agritourism potential and start their own business, risk management and marketing plans.
Each participant will receive a free copy of the extensive handbook, “Agritourism and Nature Tourism in California”, which will be used as a text for the class.
