||Agritourism in Europe: what is it? |
Agritourism is a style of vacation in which hospitality is offered on farms.
This can include the opportunity to assist with farming tasks during the visit. Agritourism is often practiced in wine growing regions, as in Italy, France and Spain.
In USA, Agritourism is wide-spread and includes any farm open to the public at least part of the year.
Tourists can pick fruits and vegetables, ride horses, taste honey, learn about wine, shop in gift shops and farm stands for local and regional produce or hand-crafted gifts, and much more.
Each farm generally offers a unique and memorable experience suitable for the entire family
Agritourism is being developed as a valuable component of a business model to support many agricultural entities when the farm products they produce are no longer economically competitive otherwise
