This is one of the fasted growing tourism activities. Indians and International visitors are very interested in the history of the India, since most of the people come from an agricultural ancestry, they want to learn more about what their great grand parents or grandparents did for a living. This is great opportunity to get back to the rural roots. Come...Discover the true culture... Agriculture in rural India Agri Tourism offers tourists’ edutainment farm tours in Malegaon Village, where they would be told about the cultivation of grapes, sugarcane, pomegranate, guava, mango, chikkoo, Custard apple, coconut , lime , banana and many more fruits plantation, guests can visit dairy farm ,milk collection centres , goat farm , emu( like ostrich bird) farm , or get an insight into how silk is produced and raw jaggery and sugar is made. It would also include evening entertainment Marathi programmes such as Bharud, Jagran Gondhal, Shekoti folk songs (all these are combinations of songs, drama, acting with music and dance) also play some of the forgotten rural games like gilli danda, gotya, bhavra, tourists can also go for the village sight seeing tour, speak to villagers, understand the working of grampanchayat, visit village school here talk to children know their quality of life, understand their expectation from urban friends. Agri Tourism is however not all about staying in a village and relishing the food, this is an opportunity to be close to where the 75 % of Indians live. “One of the best things about staying on a farm is that guests can contribute to the place through their involvement,” Our idea is to make tourists live life like a villager, right from milking the cow, ploughing the field, bathing in a well to climbing a tree and plucking fruits,” says ATDC director (sales and marketing) Pandurang Taware.

What do some of our Guests Say? 1. “What I enjoy most here are the sounds of silence,” says a visitor and a faculty member of the department of computer sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai. The break from the city, he says, helps him focus better on the week ahead. 2. Recently, a group of 14 Korean students visited the farm and carried home a slice of rural India. Says Gun Hee, who was part of the tour, “I loved the Indian food and learnt how silk was made. In Korea, farmers use machines but here, I saw the manual process.”3. A group of 125 children who recently visited Baramati got a taste of farm life. Says Jaisinh Nimbalkar, senior executive in an MNC, who escorted them, “The children learnt about irrigation and were fascinated to see silk being made from the silkworm.4. SPM School Pune Head Mistress says “this children picnic to Malegoan Agri Tourism has definitely brought about awareness among the children about life in rural India, which reflects the India.

What's really great:
Black Diamond, thats what farmers in India call the Farms
Black Diamond, thats what farmers in India call the Farms
Just as the whole universe is contained in the Self So is India contained in the villages”… None other than Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation and the visionary architect of India’s Rural Development Program's have said this. The villages epitomize the soul of India. With more than 70% of the Indian population living in rural areas, Rural India reflects the very essence of Indian culture and tradition. No wonder then that a holistic development of India as a Nation rests on a sustained and holistic development of rural India. Agritourism Development Corporation is based in pune and companies motive is to promote agriculture tourism to achieve income, employment and economic stability in rural communities in India, help boosting a range of activities, services and amenities provided by farmers and rural people to attract urban tourists to their area

Very nice subject for a report, but it is more an advert. For an explanation on rating see the link that Marianne provided. Sorry, but it is called plagiarism

Agri tourism deserves attention, however this report reads like a newspaper article. It would be far more interesting to read a personal account. More practical information would also be helpful.

I can only rate 1* because most of this report was an article in the Indian Express of 30 May. This is the link to the article:
