What is agritourism? According to some experts, agritourism can involve farms, families, fun, food, friends - and funds.

Now there is an opportunity for people to learn more about the emerging concept of agritourism. A new organization, the Kansas Agricultural Tourism Association, is conducting workshops in seven locations across Kansas for experienced agritourism operators and for those who want to explore the idea.

In Hays, a meeting will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 28 at Schmidt Farms. The morning session will be presented at the Hays Chamber of Commerce building located at 2700 Vine Street. Lunch and the afternoon session will be at Schmidt Farms.
