What is Agritourism?
Types of agritourism operations include just about anything a farmer or rancher could imagine: Children's activities, entertainment, education, hospitality services, recreational land use, seasonal entertainment or events, direct sale of products, special events, weddings and more. And with new legislation supporting Arizona's agritourism, it's a good time to talk about Arizona agritourism!
The new legislation defined agritourism in our state, recognizing it as a sector of Arizona agriculture: 1) Clear definition, 2) addresses the tax treatment of agritourism, 3) and the regulatory aspect of agritourism.
A recent webinar gives more insights into this unique aspect of agriculture in our state. The 30-minute presentation explains the bill and risk management issues.
