Scottish Enterprise are organising this event, which are being held as part of Scottish Tourism Month, to showcase best practice in rural tourism and to highlight the impact on farm diversification to the rural economy.
The McConchie Family at Laggan Farm and Mossyard Farms have gone on to make significant investment, employ more people and grow sales and profits since completing the monitor farm project three years ago.
During the monitor farm project the original business split into three separate businesses – the farming enterprise, Mossyard tourism accommodation and Laggan Outdoor.
Find out what’s being going on in these businesses, hear directly from the business owners – Murray, John and Duncan and network with other people with an interest in looking at best practice farm tourism, food tourism and rural tourism in Scotland. Hear from other farmers and tourism operators who were involved in the monitor farm about their experiences over the past three years.
