AGROTOURISM BACKGROUND

The farmlands that extend inland across three counties from St. Augustine channel American history. Timucuan farms sustained the Ancient City. “Farm-to-table” endowed Flagler Era hospitality. Now the nonprofit St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop Alliance is helping define this rural corridor for family visits. St. Johns, Putnam and Flagler Counties.  Governments are on board. So are tri-county Extension offices and the Putnam-St. Johns County Farm Bureau.

St. Johns County has proclaimed the corridor “critical to the survival of local agricultural communities.” Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam at a recent Chamber of Commerce breakfast at Blue Sky Farms praised what the corridor could accomplish.  “To see this county come together with an agritourism corridor is very exciting. . . it creates a whole new revenue stream potential. For society, it creates the opportunity to bring your kids and grandkids out here to see how all of this happened and have some good, old fashioned family fun.”

That’s the opportunity the Alliance has taken up: to strengthen the agrarian economy by introducing farm visits and by adding off-farm activities of a compatible kind.

Where before there were only individual farms and isolated activities, the Tri-County Agritourism Corridor is becoming a defining wherewithal, an umbrella collection of things to see, do and enjoy.

Join your friends and family at Rype & Readi and experience a joyful family day and culinary experience!  Wines will be Chilean & American.  The fellowship will be world-class!
