Please join us Wednesday, 2/26, for our next PEP Advisory Board

We will be exploring Agritourism and Agritainment. The two terms are sometimes intertwined, inviting the public onto your farm for a paid activity or to purchase something. This is another potential revenue stream for farms, ranches or hobby farmers/ ranchers. The Powell Visitor Center promotes Agritourism in Powell and Park County with our Ag Tours (Bus Tours, Custom Tours, Community Tours) We will be launching our new Ag Tour Ap in May as a part of the 150th anniversary of John Wesley Powell floating down the green and Colorado rivers.
  • Welcome
  • PEP Updates
  • How PEP promotes agriculture in Powell, Park County and the Big Horn Basin
  • What do farmers and ranchers need to know to get started insurance, promotions, release forms etc.
  • What local resources are here to take you from idea to implementation
Penn State defines Agritourism and Angertainment as the following:
Agritourism
Inviting the public onto a farm or ranch to participate in various activities and enjoy an agricultural experience. Agritourism enterprises include bed and breakfasts, for fee fishing or hunting, pick your own fruits/vegetables, corn mazes, farm markets and more
Agritainment
Providing the public with fun on-farm or on ranch activities. Such activities include haunted houses, mazes, miniature golf, horseback riding, hayrides and the like. See more.
