Event founder and farmer himself Gary Fitzroy says “I created the Agritourism Summit to help farmers understand how to connect their passion and knowledge with visitors, while also adding a new revenue stream to their farming operations. Whether it be a farm stay, farm tour or pick your own produce experience, agritourism allows visitors to get a taste of the people, produce and lifestyle of farming.”
