Agritourism

In Buena Vista & Salida, Colorado

What is agritourism? Simply, it’s anything related to farms, food or heritage. In Chaffee County, that includes visiting an original ranching homestead or century-old orchard where you can pitch in with the chores. It might be savoring spicy elk sausage or enjoying wine tasting at a winery. Staying overnight at an alpaca ranch or attending a fiber arts festival to shop fine clothing made from their luxurious wool. Touring a goat dairy, taking a yogurt- or cheese-making class or hiring llamas to carry your camping or hunting gear.

Dine on locally sourced trout or grass-fed beef. Shop the farmers market Taste libations at local wineries, microbreweries and distilleries. Discover candles and honey spreads created by fourth-generation Colorado beekeepers. Indulge in aromatic lotions and soaps scented with lavender, sage and other herbs and oils.
