Extension Connections - Shared screen with speaker view
If there were a statewide Certified Agritourism Operator program (created and implemented by UF), what potential incentives do you think could be created for operators to become certified? (beyond the obvious professionalism and risk management for themselves- ie- reduced insurance premiums, focused promotion by tourism bureaus, etc). Several of our ag initiative teams have been considering developing something like this for a while.
Is there a law relating to eco-tourism?
Is there a membership type (like a non-voting membership that could still be a supporter) that could allow Extension Agents to join the FATA at a more affordable cost? Or does UF maintain an umbrella membership so that we can all be somehow involved in supporting agritourism with this organization?
Where can I find the Fire Marshall standards of classification for farm buildings?
Would a seafood producer/operator (for example a working shrimpboat or oyster aquaculture operation) fall into this discussion?
Relating to Dan's question- where do activities like birding and hunting generally fall when they occur on bona fide farms/ranches?
