What is Agritourism?
Agricultural Tourism, or Agritourism is recognised worldwide where tourism services co-exist within an operational farm setting.
While there is no overarching definition as it varies throughout the world, in Scotland the definition of Agritourism is “Tourism or leisure on a working farm, croft or estate which produces food.”
Businesses undertaking Agritourism activities are seen to be a valuable contributor to the rural economy. Although Agritourism is a relatively new term, tourism and food businesses have been operating on farms, crofts and estates for many years.
