Promoting education, awareness and conservation in farming communities
We are a non-profit organization that promotes tourism to agricultural regions that produce food locally and sustainably. Our mission is to raise awareness to the importance of the production and conservation of food by showcasing organic produce farms, poultry and dairy farms, fruit orchards, vineyards and more. This will be accomplished by promoting tourism from non-agricultural areas to farmland and waterways, for tourists, students and academics to experience hands-on agriculture and food production. The Agro-tourism Council will connect tourists with their food sources and the environment while promoting the history and economic viability of the local agricultural and maritime roots of agrotouristic regions.
