    This year, speakers will provide a look at successes and challenges within Virginia agritourism. They will also offer their perspectives on subjects including the development of an agritourism operation, best practices in customer service, tactics for marketing an operation through multiple sources, measures to ensure farm safety, event hosting, networking with agritourism farms, and the path to building a regional approach. 
    Farm tours will take place during the first day of the conference in Surry, Isle of Wight, Suffolk, The City of Franklin, and Southampton County. The tours will offer guests the opportunity to visit agritourism venues related to wine, pumpkin patches, homesteads, horse riding, school land lab, and more. Tours will visit Darden’s Country Store, Isle of Wight County Schools Land Lab, Drewry Berry Farms, Hampton Roads Winery, PandA Homestead, Summerwind Vineyards, and Mill Swamp Indian Horses.
