Dear fellow residents and Businesses of Osage County

Like many locally based community organizations, everything we do needs the support of our community, both the businesses and the residents that support them.  Agritourism is an important piece of a rural community and its economic growth, and one we are proud to be a part of.

We are asking you to join us in our effort to highlight Osage County’s unique communities, our heritage, the amazing and enviable agricultural lifestyle and the products that come straight from our fertile fields and creative minds.

We are trying to stay current by keeping our website up to date and using it to invite many visitors to get their first look at what we have to offer online.  We have attracted well over 100,000 unique visitors to our Visit Osage County website with plans to improve access for both visitors and link businesses.  That speaks well for the website itself, but mostly for what makes Osage County what it is – you!

Some of our projects in the past have included;  

• Bus tours in the county, both “Be-a-Tourist-in-Your-Own-County” and tours the council solicits and arranges from outside the county, equal a significant amount of money to churches and businesses. 

• The council has completed the first Scenic Driving Tour map of northeastern Osage County, and plans to extend the project to all areas and communities. Your help will be needed to make it happen. We will be form two more working groups, one for western communities and one for southern communities, to gather information for at least two more driving tour maps to complete the project.  This is an exciting tool and one we imagine will have an incredible impact on our county in the near future. 

• The council is partnering with other organizations, especially Missouri Humanities Council, German Heritage Corridor, and Meramec Regional Planning Commission, Naturally Meramec, to be part of larger projects with intent to bring people into rural areas – to learn about rural heritage and where their food comes from.

•  Membership and Outreach Our team is working hard at increasing membership and the value it provides our members.

Each of us, working together can create a circle of hospitality that will not only attract visitors to experience the heritage and products provided by the people of Osage County, but all the residents as well.  

Please join our team!   

Sincerely,

The Osage County Agritourism Council
