Agritourism workshop set for Dec. 15 in Elizabethtown

The Kentucky Center for Agriculture and Rural Development (KCARD) will host an agritourism workshop Dec. 15 in Elizabethtown, at the Nolin RECC Building in partnership with Kentucky Farm Bureau and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

“Agritourism operations in Kentucky continue to expand and this growth has brought about new challenges for the operators,” said Aleta Botts, KCARD executive director. “This workshop will provide agribusinesses a chance to have their business development questions answered and think strategically about their agritourism operation for the future.”

The workshop is bringing together a variety of speakers based on their experience with marketing, business development, grant and loan funding, and regulatory issues. Along with a representative to speak on the American with Disabilities Act and how it pertains to agritourism operations, the workshop will also have representatives from USDA, Farm Bureau, and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture to expose participants to the different programs and services offered by these partners.

KCARD works with rural businesses and agribusinesses across the commonwealth to provide specialized assistance increasing the chances for success. KCARD provides a range of services to their clients including strategic planning, business management, operations analysis, recordkeeping development, cost analysis, and on-site business consultations.
