Travel By Design: Agritourism

“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”               – Miriam Beard

Though it may not seem like a vacation, working on a farm, ranch or village and all that entails puts one into the realm of agritourism.   From picking fruits and vegetables to herding livestock, agritourism is a global activity that sustains rural communities through visitation.  Many parts of the world now rely on agritourism to broaden and sustain their communities by promoting activities in rural areas.
