Local ag producers are discovering their occupation can be used not only for farming, but also for tourism. Cara Sorrells says her family has been using their farmland to hold educational and entertaining tours of what makes Iowa’s farms so special. She says touring the farm gives people the chance to see important crops and produce in different stages. Sorrells says they have a number of schools and church groups make the trip to their farm. She says the audience for this kind of tourism has grown every year and it can be both fun and educational.
