A growing number of agricultural enterprises across the country are entering the arena of agritourism to diversify their operations and generate additional income. Agritourism is defined as any commercial enterprise at a working farm or ranch conducted for the enjoyment of visitors that generates supplemental income for the owner. Understanding the permits required to establish an agritourism enterprise is a crucial first step toward incorporating this type of activity into an existing operation. This publication summarizes the agritourism  land use policy and permitting requirements for farm use, farm stands, home occupation, agritourism events, and wineries, and provides contact information for Oregon coastal county planning  departments, as well as online resources for additional information.
