AGRI-TOURISM: Appreciating agriculture, educating the people


     Our demonstration farm on the Farm Family Approach on Resource Management for Sustainability (FFARMS) has become a popular itinerary for farmers and extension workers going on a field tour and school children joining educational excursions. For the first half of 2008, over a hundred 'tourists' have visited our demo site. The influx of these 'tourists' is a signal that our Center is not far from reaching our ultimate goal which is to convert our demo farm into an agri-tourism site. We are slowly working our way towards the realization of our dream of establishing not just a mere demo farm project but a farm tour project offering the best farm experience to farmers, extension workers, students, nature lovers and others interested in farming.
