Agritourism: From Horseback Riding to You-Pick Farms
The Delta region is, of course, known for its vast agricultural heritage, so it makes sense that there are a number of places to “get down on the farm” in the region. You’ll even find that many Delta eateries serve up Mississippi cuisine –from pies to hot Delta tamales–using local ingredients.
You can visit a working farm
. Ride horses. Pick cotton. Roam a pumpkin patch. Feed cows. Go on a hayride. Pick fruits and vegetables at you-pick farms. Visit a tree farm and cut your own Christmas tree. Even learn to shape your own Bonsai tree from the largest importer and grower of Bonsai in the U.S.!
Who knew farming could be so much fun? Explore the ranches, nurseries and you-pick farms below and make plans to visit a working farm here in the Mississippi Delta!
