This event is intended to bring together farmers already undertaking agritourism, those with plans in the pipeline and those who are just starting to find out more about what is involved and what the benefits are.
Come and get together and build the South of Scotland Agritourism network. As well as working family farms agritourism also takes place on estates with in-house farming operations and crofts.
