NAFDMA Weekly Harvest
Second Round of Agritourism Benchmarking
Now Open for Premium Members
We offer Premium Members a way to compare, contrast, and measure themselves financially against others in the industry using intuitive responsive technology, trending analysis, and data integration.  

How it Works:
We have created groupings based on the survey results and incorporated different relevant categories of measurement. With your anonymous reporting, you can “interrogate” the data in real time to determine the best decisions for your farm compared to others in your group...or in other groups.

Data Drives Decisions!
Each month there is an Agri-Trends report that blends both context and strategy to the results and provides you the insight you need to make better business decisions.
