Agricultural and Rural Village Tourism with Farm House Visit
Come summers and we all have an urge to break-free! We want to rush to reach the height of the mountains or soak in the deep of the seas! But there is one more way to freshen up our senses and that is the natural environment of the farms. We search for nature on vacations but little do we think about Agritourism in India which is closest to nature. The unique smell of soil, green fields all around and the great pleasure of having fresh fruits and vegetables directly from the trees is indeed an experience to gain at least once in life.
What is Agritourism
Agri tourism is leisurely activities in the rural areas that help a person understand and appreciate the land and the people who live on it. Agritourism in India is the brand new form of tourism where a farmer can use his farm for tourism purposes. It enables a tourist to explore the humble farm life and learn some interesting facts about farming.

Few Heartwarming Activities as an Agro Tourist
As an agri-tourist, you get to live the life of a villager like milking the cow in the early morning, ploughing the fields, taking bath in the well or river, climb a tree and pluck fruits directly from it. You can buy produce directly from the land navigating a corn maze, slopping hogs, feed the animals, stay like a farmer, engage in farming activities, experience the bullock cart ride, tractor ride, fly kites, eat authentic food, wear traditional clothes, understand the local culture, enjoy the folk songs and dance or staying at a bed and breakfast on a farm.
Agriculture: The Culture of India
Yes, in Agriculture lies the culture of India. It is our chief occupation and it takes the hard work and labor of a farmer to till the land, ploughing the fields and grow tons of food grains, fruits and vegetables in the farms and orchards. It is indeed a great sight to watch these farmers work on their lands and live a simple life in their hut in the village. What they grow is pure, fresh and natural just like their life which is simple and grounded! An agri-tourist gets the honor to spend some time on the farm and live in the company of freshness and nature! The farmer is the humblest of workers who works silently but when it comes to hosting a guest, they leave no stone unturned in hospitality and making his trip memorable. Here are some interesting facts about our chief occupation
- About 75% of our population is dependent on agriculture
- About 90 million farmers are living in 6. 25 Lakhs villages
- About 26% of our GDP comes from agriculture
Yet we are unable to give our farmers a prosperous life that is to say proper food, shelter and education. Thus, it needs some supplementary activities to increase his incomes and Agritourism is one such activity. It also helps in contributing to the GDP and at the same time provides the tourist with a completely new arena for exploration!
