“Agrotourism is such an important part of who we are, as a state,” Crouch says. “We had 79 million visitors visit Indiana last year.”
Crouch stated that tourism at the same time brought $12 billion into Indiana’s economy in 2016. In Monroe County, Crouch says $300,000 of economic development came from tourists.
Crouch admired Upland’s support in terms of local agriculture and its influence on tourism. She says the business is an example for other companies trying to make an impact on agrotourism.
