There are a variety of value-added activities related to agritourism that farmers could opt to try – farm gate sales, pick-your-own fruit and veggies, interacting with farm animals, farm-to-table dining, or on-farm cooking classes. 

Participants in the one-day workshop will benefit from identifying opportunities and barriers, understanding regulatory obligations, having successful agritourism farmers in the room to answer questions, and landholders’ can do their own 100- day plan with the next steps mapped out. 

This is planned as a face-to-face event to be held in Mareeba for interested producers wanting to diversify their income and find out more about the opportunities in agritourism. 

To find out more, farmers are urged to visit and take the two-minute self-assessment survey to confirm that they are “workshop ready”. 

For more information, call 13 25 23.
