Agri-Tourism Seeing Rapid Growth in Popularity


Kansas City, MO (November 12, 2015) – This week the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) is celebrating its 72nd Annual Convention. The Convention is focused on building the future to provide success to all members. Farm Broadcasters are the lifeline of information to our nation’s farmers and ranchers and NAFB members take great pride in serving America’s most essential industry.


As with any industry, finding new income sources is critically important to remaining a vibrant and sustainable business. And in the Agriculture Industry where livelihoods are directly impacted by weather and markets, outside revenue sources can make the difference between a profit and/or a loss.


Agri-Tourism is an example of an outside revenue source for farmers and ranchers that’s gaining in popularity.


In Kansas City, the Northern Ag Network’s Russell Nemetz attended the “The Diversity and Success of Agri-Tourism” session featuring Steve Peterson, president of the Wisconsin Agricultural Tourism Association in Madison, WI and afterwards spoke with him about the opportunities for today’s farmers and ranchers.
