We are entrepreneurial farm families who invite customers to visit our farms and experience the food and the fun we create to sustain our livelihood. Our membership is made up of farmers, extension agents, industry suppliers, researchers, farmers’ market participants, and government officials. Together we work to advance agritourism including on-farm retail, pick your own, consumer-supported agriculture, direct delivery, and farmers' markets. We facilitate events, resources, communications, and peer-to-peer exchanges that bring together new relationships and opportunities.
