About Agri Tourism
In general, Agri-Tourism is the practice of attracting travelers or visitors to an area or areas used primarily for agricultural purposes. However, Agri-Tourism is small-scale, low-impact, and, in most cases, education-focused. Because landowners operate the majority of farms in Maharasthra, opportunities for uniqueness and customization are limitless. Many agri-tourism activities require only a small farm crew in order to be successful. For instance, farm tours, bed and breakfasts, Tractor / bullock card rides, grapes, mangoes, and other horticulture farms, by product farms, birds / animal zoos, and many other activities may be operated with little additional investment in labor. Below is the list of a few things that a farm operator may offer to tourists. The business operator is limited only by his or her own creativity.
