Part 2 of the East Coast Webinar Series will be offered on March 9, 2010 from 12-1 or 7-8pm by Tourism Extension, NCSU Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station and NC Cooperative Extension.

The agritourism industry has grown substantially in recent years. Conducting agritourism activities on your farm can be a viable way to diversify your farm and provide additional income for your operation. Although agritourism activities may be a potential way to increase farm viability and income, the risks and added responsibilities associated with these activities are not well-suited to every farm or farmer. This webinar will help you assess your farming operation and help you decide if an agritourism operation is right for you.
