Agritourism

Agriculture is the number one industry in Genesee County and comes in a multitude of shapes and sizes. 

By supporting your farming neighbors and buying local, you keep your dollars circulating in our community. Buying from a local farm also cuts down on the distance your food travels. 

Experience new things - Farm fresh eggs, sweet blueberries and road side stands with loads of fresh veggies. Visit beautiful gardens. Pick strawberries, apples or pumpkins. Go home with unique gifts or a Christmas tree. Stock up at local farms, farm stands and businesses that offer genuine local product.
