Tourism is arguably one of the largest and fastest growing industries in the world. And agriculture is the primary industry in most of the Central Valley. Combine the two, and you find a common attraction in our area: agritourism. Some may not even realize their experiences fall under this category: farm stands, u-pick farms, farm dinners, farm-fresh food tastings, horseback riding, and farm tours are all forms of agritourism. It often tells the story of agriculture and food production while offering an engaging experience and education element. Just outside of Visalia, in the rural area of Ivanhoe, a working citrus farm offers agritourism through a real farm experience. They host orchard tours and educate guests about how oranges and mandarins are grown, protected, and harvested.
