$2,500 — Farm Tours

Looking to expand apart from the individual and wholesale markets, agritoursim seemed the next logical step for the Denison’s trout farm. Having been asked repeatedly if they allow “fish-out” or for tours by both community members and the occasional tourist seeking entertainment and a farm-fresh meal, they began to consider agritourism as a viable option for their business this year.

Expected income over a two-year period – $24,000.
