LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Cache County officials are considering an ordinance that would facilitate farms that want to become agritourism hot spots.

The Herald Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2bOMg7T) that the Cache County Council is taking another look at a proposal to allow agricultural lands to obtain conditional use permits for recreational activities without a full rezone.

Council members say they recognize the growing trend of farmers catering to tourists.

They say they are still trying to figure out how to regulate farm-to-table businesses.

County planners say current code would require farmers rezone their property for commercial business.

Farmers say that having to do that could shut them out of business.
