AGRICULTURE TOURISM - touring to study farm success stories
« on: March 24, 2012, 09:31:00 PM »
Agricultural Tourism is NOT the Holidays concept of Visiting a working farm or any agricultural, horticultural, or agribusiness operations for the purpose of enjoyment. But for education, or active involvement in the activities of the farm or operation. In general Agri Tourism is the effort of attaining Farmers or new comers in agricultural purposes.

Agritourism, as it is defined most broadly, involves any Agriculture-based operation or activity that brings visitors to a farm. Agri tourism has different definitions in different parts of the world, and sometimes refers specifically to farm stays, as in Italy. Agritourism includes a wide variety of activities, including buying produce direct from a farm stand, navigating a corn maze, picking fruit, feeding animals, or staying at a farm.

Agritourism is a tourism that considered an opportunity for one who wants to learn unique technicals used by smart people to reduce cost of production and to get good yield. Desired people an opportunity to educate them by visiting to the farms to know more knowledge to know how their tasty food is produced.

Any one is interested in touring to the destination where they wanted to study success stories?
Regards.

Re: AGRICULTURE TOURISM-2 ACRE FARM YIELDS MORE THAN SOFTWARE SALARY
« Reply #1 on: March 25, 2012, 07:13:37 PM »

Dear Friends,
During my last visit to a Farm, I saw a wonder in barren land.
Except that land all other lands bounded on all sides are still as it is.


A Doctor turned farmer purchased land about one and half acre about 3 years back, Only 3 years calculated risk rewarded with daily income that may be more than of a software engineer and it is non stoppable for not only his entire life, but also to his children and even to his grand children too!

Now he earns Rs.2000/- per day.
You must question as to what he is growing?
Apple yet to start yielding.
Arecanut not yet started yielding,
Chicken,
coconut- Coconuts are sitting on the earth from tree.
Mysore mallige flower
Lemon-Each plant carrying more than 2000 fruits.
Mango,
Orange,
Pomegranate,
Sapota and other totaling about 22 verities.

All above are grown with 1.5 inch water yield with power problem. I has not got any help from others than his own family members about 3 including himself. What inputs like chemicals and pesticides he is applying for this production? Answer is ZERO. Just he is assisting nature @ 5% to create its wonders.


What best achievement than this is required?

You may know other farmer who may achieved even more success, any one can come up with such success hero?

JAI HO FARMER DOCTOR.
Regards.
SWAMY.

Hi,

Thats really good. Can you share some pic of the farm and its plants. It would be a feast to the eyes to see such pics and get lots of inspiration.

Meanwhile can you arrange for some visits during weekends. May be near by Bangalore or some 2 to 3 hrs away from Bangalore. Just to start off and know each other and learn by seeing.

Regards

Murali

Thanks for the good initiative Swamy.

Similarly, there's a 25 year old fully organic & sustainable farm near Mysore. The farm name is Indraprastha and AP Chandrasekar is the owner. I've visited it once before. Though I dont have the contact details right now, if anyone is interested, a visit can be arranged. Its just 10 kms from Mysore in the HD Kote road.
