MACo 2013 Summer Conference Session – Agricultural Tourism: A High Yield Investment

Description: Agricultural tourism is a burgeoning industry in Maryland with wineries, creameries, and farmers’ markets growing across the state. Not only does this industry bring culture and healthy foods, but it is also an economic driver. This session will give insights into the role “ag-tourism” plays now and provide some hints as to its continued growth. Following this session, you can sample some of the many Maryland ag-tourism products at the Taste of Maryland Reception in the Dockside Exhibit Hall.
