The 2012 Wisconsin Agritourism Study was conducted as a partnership between the Wisconsin Agricultural Tourism Association (WATA), the University of Wisconsin‐Extension Center for Community and Economic Development and County University of Wisconsin‐Extension Cooperative Extension offices. The study was designed to provide agritourism businesses with customer information to improve marketing to include customer origin, motivations for visits and spending, customer tastes and preferences, estimate consumer expenditure potential and economic impact of the food-based agritourism industry in Wisconsin, and determine the relative size and composition of food based agritourism in Wisconsin.
