MAYFLOWER, Ark. (KTHV) - Have you picked out the perfect pumpkin yet? Or have you thought about going on a hayride? Fall activities like these are fun for you, but did you know they provide a secondary source of income for many Arkansas farmers?
As the name suggests, Agritourism combines agriculture and tourism by traveling to the farm to spend money on seasonal activities like pick-your-own and corn mazes. Agriculture experts predict Arkansas will have a stronger Agritourism year than ever before.
"This one," said Brady Grice.
With all his might, 5-year-old Brady Grice goes for the biggest one.
"Whoa," said Grice.
His family sets aside more than just a day for Fall fun.
"The Fall is by far my favorite time of the year," said Lisa Schaefers.
