“The directory has been a beloved resource as far back as 1979, when it was first published by the Michigan Department of Agriculture,” said Janice Benson, executive director of the Michigan Agritourism Association. “Today, it continues to be recognized as the best place to find family-friendly, fun activities on Michigan farms.”
This year’s directory highlights what’s unique and special about each region of the state, from an agricultural perspective. “Michigan has a great story to tell,” said Benson. “Agriculture has been such a big part of Michigan’s history and it’s one of the most exciting stories of the future. Many people don’t realize what we have here. Michigan is really an agricultural powerhouse.”
Printed copies of the directory are available at Farm Bureau Insurance offices across the state. From agent offices to county offices the public is welcome to stop by and retrieve their copy. In addition, you can find copies at Chemical Bank locations in Michigan and Indiana, Michigan Welcome Centers, member locations and many Convention and Visitor Bureaus throughout Michigan.
