NAFDMA’s Advanced Learning Retreat (ALR) is a multi-day intensive that connects attendees with premier agritourism operations in North America. Stepping out of the classroom and onto the farm, the ALR offers immersive, hands-on education in best operational practices for farms and attractions.

The 2018 Advanced Learning Retreat will be hosted at Quinn Farm in Quebec, Canada by Phil and Stephanie Quinn. Situated within 20 minutes of Montreal, Quinn Farm offers guests farmyard activities, a rare breed animal barn, tractor rides, u-pick fruits/veggies and a bakery.

Bonus Day – Home to the first-ever Advanced Learning Retreat in 2006, Saunders Farm will welcome NAFDMA back for a first of its kind “Bonus ALR Day” on July 31st (additional fee required).  Learn how Mark and Angela Saunders have been successful at creating their own entertainment on the farm while staying true to their brand.
