Arkansas AgriTourism Assocation
The Arkansas Agritourism Association was organized by a group of Arkansas agritourism operators who began meeting in 2017 to explore the possibility of forming a statewide association. Technical assistance was provided by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service, the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism and the Arkansas Agriculture Department. The organization provides support, education, technical assistance and networking opportunities for current and potential agritourism operators throughout the state. The group held its first official meeting February 26, 2018, to establish bylaws and elect officers and board members.

Fun for the family
Agritourism is a beautiful melding of agriculture, tourism and education. It is an industry that shines a spotlight on the farmer, large or small, educating the consumer and the next generation of young people opening new doors to the traditions of old. We hope as our state association grows and develops, it will be a shining example of hard work, determination and complimentary cooperation in a multifaceted industry.
