This report from Connecticut's Capitol Region Council of Governments focuses on the need to go beyond farmland preservation efforts to promote and support the viability of farming operations and farmers in the region. Local officials from eleven municipalities and agricultural producers (wholesalers, retailers, and agritourism business operators) participated in interviews and listening sessions; their comments and concerns led to the development of recommendations on promoting local farming activities. The report summarizes the results of the agritourism listening session and offers nine recommendations to support agricultural business enterprises.
