A network of agri-tourism businesses in Kansas working together to promote agricultural tourism.
What is Ag Tourism? If you have ever visited a farm, met a llama, tasted a squeaky-fresh cheese curd still warm from the vat, got lost in a corn maze, or picked your own strawberries under the same summer sun that sweetened them; you have been involved in Ag-tourism! Today less than one percent of our nation's consumers live on farms, with many being four to five generations removed from even knowing anyone that farmed. We are raising a generation of children who do not know how apples grow or how a gallon of milk gets into the grocer's cooler. The members of the Kansas Agricultural Tourism Association (KATA) invite you to get in touch with the land -- whether at a farmstead bed and breakfast, a pick-your-own orchard, or a food discovery center. We'll put you directly in touch with the "makers" responsible for locally sourced Kansas Ag products. Through our members you will meet producers, growers, farmers, brewers, vintners, bakers, and cheesemakers. We are also your source for Ag-tourism related events -- like food festivals, breakfasts on the farm, and fall harvest adventures.
