TOPEKA, Kan. — The Kansas Department of Commerce is offering a five-week course on agritourism in August for farmers, business owners and others.

The department says the classes will help teach people how to start an agriculture-based tourism business, or how to incorporate tourism into an existing business.

Agritourism sites allow people to visit or even do some work at farms, ranches and other agricultural businesses.

The classes will be held in the Community Building in Netawaka, about 40 miles north of Topeka. They’ll start Aug. 2 and be held on five consecutive Monday nights through the end of the month.

The department says the course will cost $75 per person.
