The New Agritourism: Hosting Community and Tourists on your Farm is a new
book from New World Publishing, publishers of small-scale agriculture and
market farming books such as Sell What You Sow!, The New Farmers’ Market and
Micro Eco-Farming.

The New Agritourism, by Barbara Berst Adams, shows that farmers can earn
more income and keep their authentic farms thriving by operating an
agritourism enterprise, and shows how farmers who are succeeding operate
their successful agritourism enterprises, and how other farms can, also. It
shows how to focus and organize an agritourism plan, keep it safe and legal,
promote the enterprise, and continue to progress and stay prosperous in the
years to come. Further, the general public begins to reconnect with the
depth of farming again, which encourages them to offer and demand support
for fair treatment of their local farms.

What Others Are Saying:

More than ever, consumers want to know where their food and other farm
products come from, how they were produced and who grew or raised them. The
New Agritourism inspires producers to capitalize on this phenomenon and
teaches them how, illuminating readers that opening one's farm gates to the
public can be both personally rewarding and profitable.

– Dan Sullivan, Senior editor, The Rodale Institute

The New Agritourism is the new authority for making your small farm work. An
exciting book that will become a small farm classic.
