MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Department of Agriculture has scheduled a series of workshops for agritourism operators.

The daylong workshops are being offered in Morgantown, with the first scheduled for Nov. 1. Others are set for December, January and February. They will be held at the West Virginia University Agricultural Sciences building.

For operators in southern West Virginia, four classes are scheduled, with the first set for Nov. 8. They will be held at the Emma Byrd Higher Education Center in Beaver.

Online sessions will also be available starting next year.

The classes are funded through a $30,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

The workshops are intended to help agritourism operators navigate the risks associated with running their attractions.
