Spotlight on Practical Resources
Guest Lodging on Your California Farm or Ranch: A Practical Guide
Offering a farm stay, where working farms and ranches provide lodging to urban or suburban travelers looking for a country experience, can be a win-win for both parties. The farm or ranch diversifies its product offering, thus reducing risk and bringing in additional revenue; the traveler has a unique lodging experience. This free guide provides advice and resources for farmers and ranchers considering offering on-farm lodging and includes information on permits and regulations, staffing, reservations/booking, liability and insurance, finances, pricing, marketing, hospitality and customer service, a budget template, sample waivers and forms, and more . UC Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (UC SAREP) , a statewide program of UC ANR, created the guide as part of its California agritourism program .
Notes From the Field
California's working landscape generates $333 billion in sales, 1.5 million jobs
“When people think of California's economy, they think of entertainment, information technology and other industries. They may not think of working landscape,” said Glenda Humiston, University of California vice president, agriculture and natural resources. “People may be surprised to learn that California's working landscape accounts for 6.4 percent of the state's economy, supports more than 1.5 million jobs and generates $333 billion in sales.”
