A Successful Agritourism Training Weekend

This past weekend members from 6 of our participating farms came together for an Agritourism training weekend. We worked together to cover topics like business planning, safety, marketing, partnerships, and the specifics of our individual tours.  It looks like we will have a wide variety of activities at each farm, giving you a different experience at each stop along the way. We are really gearing up for the upcoming farm tour, and are so excited to welcome visitors to the Greenbrier Valley.
