Beyond the city lights, Washington is also known for its lush farmlands. More farmers are adding to their income by incorporating agritourism into their business. This type of tourism has risen substantially in recent years. Agricultural businesses around the Spokane area may benefit by extending their services to include visitor attractions.
What Is Spokane Agritourism?
Visiting a farm is a new experience for city dwellers. These people pay to view livestock and even participate in everyday chores, such as grooming a horse or milking a cow. Agritourism is a quickly rising sector; globally, it’s expected to expand to a $117 billion industry by 2027.
More farmers and ranchers are expanding their property to accommodate paying guests. This may include creating a bed and breakfast or renting out a parcel of the property as a wedding venue. Other activities for visitors at a farm include livestock petting zoos, bird and wildlife viewing, and walking through corn mazes.
Installing a Pole Barn for Tourism
If you’re contemplating expanding your farm to include agritourism, then an extra pole barn definitely expands your venue. Having a second building enables farmers to designate the space for agricultural work while using the other for tourism activities.
Optional features include all the extras of a conventional building, such as vinyl windows, eaves, in-floor heating, etc. This makes the barn comfortable for guests who may spend additional time in the building. This is particularly the case if you utilize the barn as a wedding reception venue. It may also benefit the livestock as they have additional roaming space when confined indoors.

More people are wanting a glimpse of life outside the city. Farmers and ranchers all over Spokane can invest in their business by erecting a pole barn. Contact C&S Construction if you’re considering throwing your hat in the agritourism industry.
