What exactly is Agribusiness/Agritourism? Agribusiness often refers to value-added agricultural activities such as processing, support services, and research and innovation. Agritourism combines traditional agricultural practices with opportunities for people to visit local farms, learn more about agriculture, attend event venues, and enjoy farm-based activities such as farm to table dinners, corn mazes, U-Picks, petting zoos, etc.

Farming and agriculture are integral to our community and prosperity in the County. Ensuring we are incorporating the experience of our residents and operators into the ways we practice, organize, and regulate agribusiness and agritourism will help us best support and grow this industry into the future.

Input gathered from residents, landowners, and other stakeholders will help the Task Force, supported by a team of independent consultants, to develop regulation and policy recommendations in support of growing agribusiness and agritourism opportunities in the County.
