Agritourism is gradually becoming popular in Bengaluru

Published on : Saturday, January 4, 2020

We have heard of coastal tourism, heritage, adventure and even heli-tourism. Now, there would also be agritourism, as per the upcoming tourism policy in Bengaluru. Agritourism is gradually becoming popular among children, urban families and even the corporate world in the city.

 

In the last two years, many agricultural farms have come up in and around Bengaluru. Many schools are organizing trips to these places where children are learning about rural life by spending time with farm animals like cattle, horses, birds and even reptiles. Many are also taking an interest in dairy farming and agriculture. Many urban families are taking their children to day-long tours to agro-tourism farms where they are spending quality time together. Many corporate firms are also taking an interest in agritourism instead of resorts, where at economical rates, team building and de-stressing activities can be done.

 

The tourism department and companies are realizing the potential of agritourism and are working towards regulating it and bringing it in the upcoming tourism policy.

 

Chikkamath, from AgriculTour, a startup and pioneer in agri-tourism in Karnataka said, “AgriculTour is a fusion of Agriculture and Tourism — a first of its kind Agri Tourism initiative in India. They are natural tours and contribute more to tourism, when compared to regular tourism activities. It provides a unique experiential learning opportunity for children to understand about agriculture, which is the source of our food and also for farmers to learn best practices in agriculture. It also provides and an additional source of income for the farmers and rural communities. “
