Agricultural Tourism Craft Beverage and Farmer Workshops


Agricultural Tourism Craft Beverage and Farmer Workshops

Attention Massachusetts farmers interested in agritourism, craft beverage producers of beer, wine, cider, and spirits and tourism professionals!  Culinary tourism workshops in April will focus on cross-sector marketing practices and branding strategies to attract visitors to tours, tastings, and tap rooms with an emphasis on destination marketing.  While the focus is on the craft beverage sector, farmers interested in agritourism will gain insights into building farm visits and opportunities for cross promotion.

Success stories from host businesses, panel discussions featuring wine, beer, cider and spirits experts sharing best practices, MA Office of Travel and Tourism’s ad agency Small Army with recommendations on brand development and identifying social media priorities, and resources from craft beverage associations and state agencies MOTT and MDAR are part of the workshops, ending with networking.

This event is open to farmers interested in ag tourism, craft beverage businesses and tourism professionals. There is no cost to participate, however registration is required as space is limited.  The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism and the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources have teamed up for this series of workshops to support the Commonwealth’s craft beverage industry and farmers in agritourism.
