In recent years, issues related to food and farming education have been gradually paid attention to. From the perspective of leisure farm operators, this study analyzes the willingness and obstacles of leisure farms to promote food and farming education and provides new options for the agricultural government to implement food and farming education. The results show that operators’ willingness to operate food and farming education includes factors. Such as farmland size, years of establishment, number of employees, and operating income; obstacles include external government regulations, internal factors such as environment, human resources, and talent. Obstacles will affect the operator’s willingness to operate education for food farmers. Therefore, leisure farms can increase human resources, strengthen professional explanations, and develop experiential teaching models, becoming the best way to promote food education.
