Encounter Agriculture!

Even if you’re not a farmer or rancher, you can connect with the land and the people that produce the foods and beverages you consume. Agritourism is where agriculture and tourism intersect, as farms, ranches and production facilities invite the public onto their property to get a taste of the country and enjoy great agricultural products at the peak of perfection.

Visiting a farm, ranch, winery, brewery, or special agriculture event offers wonderful, unique experiences. Selecting the perfect pumpkin straight from the patch, roping a calf, buying farm fresh products, enjoying local entertainment, participating in activities, or getting to know a local winemaker are just a few of the fun and fabulous activities waiting for you.

Escape from the stress of traffic jams and office cubicles and spend the day with your family in the country!

This website offers a sampling of agritourism activities available in Montana. We’ll be continually updating this information, so check back often for new events and destinations.

Breweries, Wineries & Distilleries

From the fine grains and fruits of Montana come some of the tastiest refreshments! Wineries, breweries and distilleries make for fascinating touring and tasting experiences. Whether it's a craft brew, a local vintage or a small batch whiskey or vodka, there are several production facilities across Montana where you can learn the production techniques and secrets directly from the brewmasters, vintners, and distillers themselves. Then you can pull up a chair and taste their product right on the spot.

From Wibaux to West Glacier, you can discover the tasty spirits of Montana.

When people think about Montana's short growing season and cold winters, the vision of vineyards may not immediately spring to mind. However, there are varietals well-suited for Montana's northern climate and innovative vintners are constantly developing new hybrids and techniques for growing grapes in Big Sky Country.

Currently, the bulk of grapes used in Montana wines are grown in other western states. Unique wines are also created using Montana's famous Flathead cherries, wild huckleberries, tart chokecherries, honey, and even dandelions.
