If you want to make some extra money on the farm have you ever considered agritourism? Agritourism is “any agriculturally based operation or activity that brings visitors to a farm or ranch” and includes a variety of different activities – from farm stays to horse riding adventures. Though agritourism stats are hard to come by, a study in British Columbia indicates that the average agritourism operator generates revenue of $98,000. In Ontario, it is estimated that agritourism generates $596 million in sales and a $1.8 billion impact on the provincial economy.
