List of farm resources, including webinars and clips from the CA Small Farm Conference.
The California Agricultural Water Stewardship Initiative (CAWSI) aims to raise awareness about approaches to agricultural water management that support the viability of agriculture, conserve water, and protect ecological integrity in California. CAWSI is managed by CAFF and guided by an Editorial Board.
Our 2023 California Small Farm Conference playlist includes over 30 videos and workshops from the conference that are full of information on a wide variety of subjects, including the “How to get started with Agritourism” video below.
Agritourism is an increasingly popular strategy for farmers and ranchers who are looking to increase and diversify revenue, market products, and connect with the community. Deciding which activities are right for your business, figuring out how to navigate relevant regulations, and understanding how to get started can be overwhelming. This workshop will explore opportunities and benefits, as well as considerations and challenges, for incorporating agritourism into your farm business, with a spotlight on the emerging enterprise of low-impact, camping-based agritourism. Experienced operators and agritourism professionals will share insights, lessons learned, and resources to help guide you through assessing if agritourism is right for you, including how to find and interpret which local regulations may apply to your agritourism activities.
