AG2302. New England Agritourism
You'll learn about an agritourism business in the Northeast. Farming in the Northeast provides both a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Bensons Pond Inc and Bogside Acres, LLC focus on providing high touch, experiential events and farm activities primarily centered around the family's cranberry bog. While primarily cranberry bog focused these events also highlighting locally grown food including the family's pasture raised proteins. These operations have provided an avenue for income diversification, allowing for succession planning and other improvements to the farm that traditional farming alone may not have provided. The family enjoys sharing their barn and cranberry bogs with guests and looks forward to sharing some of our farms highlights with attendees. We may even pack a few waders and cranberry scoops!
