Farm-based recreation or agritourism activities such as hunting, fishing or horseback riding represent a growing source of income for farmers and ranchers, according to a new report from USDA’s Economic Research Service.

The report provides a detailed view of the types of farmers and the types of places where farm recreation may have the greatest potential. An ERS study found the South accounts for more than half of all farms receiving recreational income, followed by the Midwest, which accounts for about a quarter.

Earnings from these activities tend to be highest in more densely populated counties, in areas with low or negative growth rates, and in counties where the overall recreational activity is high.
