Country Life

Where to Have Fun on the Farm




Each year, 62 million people enjoy finding things to do at farms and farmhouses, ranches and wineries as guests, visitors or volunteer workers, according to RuralBounty.com. Agritourism is often a fast-growing dimension of regional tourism. Many family farmers now welcome the public onto their properties so they can sustain their agricultural lifestyle.

From hayrides to cattle drives; from gathering free-range eggs to sugaring maples; and from picking cherries to walking fields of lavender, it’s all available and waiting. Inquirers can tap into a vast array of local food production and garden nursery experiences at AgritourismWorld.com. Here, they can search by category or specific interest, as well as state or country. Information on tours is also provided.
