Agri-tourism Resources

Over the last several months, we have spoken to lots of community members about agri-tourism and how we may incorporate available land use provisions for events and activities into Wasco County 2040. We will be working to adopt some new language to Wasco County 2040 and make some recommendations for the Land Use and Development Ordinance early next year.

In the meantime, we wanted to provide some additional information and resources for farmers or others interested in agri-tourism in Oregon.
