PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Oct. 18, 2018– Calvert County is home to a flourishing agri-tourism community that provides a bounty of activities for visitors. Agri-tourism – the combination of agriculture and tourism – is all about the experience of farm life. Citizens are encouraged to spend a leisurely day visiting Calvert County farms to learn more about the robust agriculture community while enjoying an abundance of autumnal events.

October is the perfect time for families to visit a working farm for fun fall activities while supporting local agriculture. From pumpkin picking and corn mazes to petting zoos and vineyard tours, there are many ways to spend time outdoors to learn how farming enriches our community.

“Calvert County offers many unique and exciting agri-tourism options,” said Agricultural Development Specialist Jennifer Pettko. “We hope citizens take time this fall, and throughout the year, to support agricultural businesses by visiting a local farm, winery or brewery.”
