Cooperative Extension’s Herds and Harvest Program, with cosponsor Utah State University, will hold a Farm and Food Tourism workshop 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., June 2-3, at the Clark County Cooperative Extension office, 8050 Paradise Road, Suite 100 in Las Vegas.
The workshop is designed for growers, small food producers and tourism operators looking to expand their agritourism or food tourism operations by taking advantage of the growing tourist demand for farm and local food experiences.
“There is an increasing demand for local foods, especially among travelers,” Kynda Curtis, agricultural marketing specialist for Utah State Cooperative Extension, said. “The National Restaurant Association’s 2013 Restaurant Industry Forecast reported that seven out of 10 consumers were more likely to visit a restaurant offering locally produced items.”
