Appropriate planning is essential if you want to present a positive image of your farm and of agriculture as a whole, and to be well prepared for a group visit. Farm tours should not, generally, be conducted in an ad hoc manner.
- Develop rules for photography. You need to decide whether visitors can take pictures of everything they see or only in certain areas. Consider providing a specific location for group/family commemorative photos where pictures can be taken beside a farm sign, farm product, or some other piece of memorabilia.
- Be sure you have given adequate attention to hygiene. Assess the adequacy of your bathroom and hand washing arrangements, especially if visitors will be handling animals before they eat.
- Provide for adequate amounts and locations of garbage cans in the eating areas.
Call your neighbors to let them know about the planned tour.
Ensure that dead and injured animals or discarded products will not be on display during the tour or visible to your guests.
The Tour Schedule and Presentation:
- Develop a tour program and a verbal presentation that can be modified to fit the interests and backgrounds of the audience.
- View your operation through the eyes of a visitor. Point out the obvious and explain the reasons behind specific operations
- Post signs that clearly outline safety requirements.
- Emphasize a theme throughout the tour (for example: Organics, recycling, sustainable agriculture, food quality, animal welfare, agriculture and the Eco environment, and conservation).
Briefing the Group:
- Ascertain the general age and abilities of the members of the tour in terms of the approximate number of adults and children and why the group wants to visit your farm.
- Establish a comfortable ratio of chaperones to children and youth if you feel it is necessary.
- Discuss parking and provide directions to parking facilities.
- Suggest clothing that enhances safety, for example closed-toe, low heel shoes and comfortable clothing. Suggest people bring hats and sunscreen in the summer, and warm clothing in other seasons.
- Discuss meals. Will the group be eating on your property? What will meals cost? Are your picnicking facilities adequate, if that is an option?
Conducting the Tour:
- Greet your visitors on the bus if they arrive by bus. Some tour buses have a PA system that you might use to address your audience.
- Introduce yourself and firmly but politely establish expectations regarding conduct and behavior (appropriate for the age group).
- Remind visitors that your farm is a working, production- oriented operation, not an amusement park.
- Children should be advised to: walk, remember that rocks stay on the ground, stay with the group, be good listeners, and raise their hands when they have questions.
- Prepare visitors for regular farm environmental hazards such as odors, flies, dust or loud noises. However, to the extent that you can, take steps to mitigate these environmental irritants.
Concluding the Tour:
- Walk at a pace appropriate to the group’s size and age.
- Have a responsible person at the rear of the group to assist with keeping the group together.
- Discuss what the group will see before entering a noisy area.
- Children should be encouraged to repeat new words and concepts as you explain them
- Be sure to explain any agriculture terms that may be foreign to your guests. Think of ways to relate concepts and terms to everyday life, for example, feeder mixer wagons are blenders on wheels, etc.).
- Answer only questions about what you know and limit your comments to your farm. Avoid ideological debates with guests or customers.
- Allow plenty of time for questions.
- Review the main concepts you introduced and refer to the key theme (s). For children’s groups, use a fill-in-the-blank method, encouraging the children to participate, thus reinforcing the information.
- Samples of the product (empty containers, pictures, or actual products) provide a great ending. Provide information on how/where they can purchase your product.
