It's Not Just a Trip.

More than a century of entrepreneurial know-how, generations of expertise, and unparalleled passion for growing. That’s what you’ve come to expect from an AmericanHort tour experience. The 2016 Field & Covered Tour doesn’t just live up to that expectation - it sets the bar.

Three unique operations, thousands of varieties, millions of square feet of indoor growing facilities, and hundreds of acres of outdoor production space. Industry award winners, pilot program pioneers, and legacy vision.

You'll walk away with key insights on everything from production techniques to pest management, from water management to marketing, from customer service to disease control.

It’s all in a day’s work. Or, more specifically, it’s all in YOUR day's work. There’s no better time or place to gather the real-world knowledge you need to best tackle your daily challenges. And it’s all designed so that you’ll have maximum opportunity to develop professional networks (a.k.a. friends), learn in-the-field (a.k.a. kick the dirt), and discover how it all goes together in ways you can implement for your business.
