Applications are still being accepted for an agritourism business planning course to be held in Kadoka, SD. The course is set to begin on Tuesday, Jan. 11, and will meet every Tuesday for five consecutive weeks, ending on Feb. 8. Classes will be held in Kadoka alternating between Jiggers Restaurant and Club 27. Enrollment for the course costs $100 and each additional person from the same family or business costs only $50. Enrollment is limited to the first 35 applicants.
“Agritourism: Your next cash crop?” is a five-day course designed to provide farmers and ranchers with the tools needed to successfully start or expand their own agritourism operations. It is being offered by the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, Badlands/South Central Enterprise Facilitation and the Badlands and South Central RC&D Councils.
“We are excited to offer this course in Kadoka, and there are still a few spots open in the class,” said Silvia Christen of the South Dakota Stockgrowers. “If you’ve ever thought about starting an agritourism business like hunting, ranch vacations, trail rides or anything that might bring travelers out to your ranch, I’d really encourage you to take this class and develop your idea.”
