Agritourism

Mississippi has a wealth of exhilarating outdoor activities for visitors who wish to explore the state's rich agricultural history. Navigate a corn maze, stay in a sharecropper's shack, go shrimping on the Mississippi Gulf Coast or pick your own fruits and vegetables from orchards and working farms. Our agriculture and its great heritage have not only flourished over the years but have also produced a growing Agritourism industry exhibiting some of the most enticing and diverse attractions in the South. Where once cotton was king, now industries such as catfish farms, buffalo ranches and organic gardens are springing up to extend Mississippi's warm southern hospitality to visiting travelers. Here you can experience life on the farm and indulge yourself in the “grass roots” culture that made this country great.
