Are you interested in starting or enhancing your agri-tourism business? The Hawaii AgriBusiness Guidebook: Starting an Agri-Tourism Operation can help you get started! The guidebook was designed to provide aspiring agri-tourism businesses an overview of essential training information, as well as share helpful tips for farmers.

Originally published in 2008, the guidebook was intended to be presented in a classroom format and supplemented with additional training resources that could be used independently according to an individual's schedule and learning style.

The preparation of the original guidebook and its most recent edition was made possible through a collaborative partnership with GoFarm Hawaii, the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, Oahu Resource Conservation and Development Council, and Hawaii Agritourism Association.
Keep in touch with HTA via social media:
HTA recognizes the use of the 'okina ['] or glottal stop, one of the eight consonants of the (modern) Hawaiian language; and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawai'i such as Lāna'i). However, HTA respects the individual use of these markings for names of organizations and businesses. Due to technological limitations, this current communication
may not include all Hawaiian diacritical markings.
