    Topic: Agritourism

    What do you see as agri-tourism activities – and what do you do or offer?
    How does agritourism fit into your farm plan?
    How do you answer the question, ‘can my business be an attraction for visitors?’
    When you conducted your research, what was the profile of the owner of an agri-tourism business? are they ‘old’ businesses?

    Topic: This month Doing Business focuses on the issues associated with successfully integrating the business into the home. Living and working in the same space can be fun, exciting and successful. Jane and her guests will explore how it can also provide a space ripe for conflict and see how to go to the edge and find balance for you – and your family.
