Upcoming Webinar: Agritourism and Public Health

Learn from Connecticut’s experience with the growing field of agri-tourism on Wednesday, August 15 from 12-1:30 pm Eastern Time.


Agri-tourism enterprises are a rapidly growing business sector in CT and New England. From pick-your-own orchards to farm dinners and on-farm festivals, being on the farm is fun. But is the public really safe on the farm? Join us as we learn what is being done by federal and state agencies to protect the public from health risks.  Educational tools and other resources will be shared.


Presenters include:

  • Valerie Koenig, DVM, US Department of Agriculture
  • Bruce A. Sherman, DVM, MPH, CT Department of Agriculture
  • Paul Gacek, MPH, CPH, CT Department of Public Health
