For over 35 years NAFDMA has hosted a live annual convention revered by the agritourism industry, and we now take great pride in our ability to translate the value of education, networking and camaraderie into this virtual platform.

 

NAFDMA’s 2021 Virtual Agritourism Summit offers three days of engaging programming including fourteen educational sessions, five immersive farm tours, a virtual trade show, a silent auction and many opportunities such as a live chat and private Facebook group to keep attendees connected with one another throughout the experience.

 

The Virtual Agritourism Summit is a one-time only streaming event, so please plan your schedule accordingly as the event will not be rebroadcast.

Farm Tours

We know you always want to see other agritourism farms and destinations in the heart of their season, but you can rarely get away from your own business. So, we did the traveling for you! Through a variety of interviews, photos and videos, you will be immersed in the unique experience of each farm’s operation.

You are guaranteed to learn something new from every location on this farm tour of DeBuck's Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch, Edwards Apple Orchard West, Kuipers Family Farm, Niederman Family Farm, and Richardson Adventure Farm & Christmas Tree Farm.
