Agritourism in the Philippines

Philippines agritourism information and reviews.

Many people are growing more interested in how their food is produced, or how the population of a foreign country produces food. Agritourism is a style of vacation that normally takes place on a farm, either domestically or abroad.

Agritourism farms in the Philippines offer tours to allow a person to view the growing, harvesting, and processing of locally grown foods, such as corn, coconuts, sugar cane, and pineapple. Often the farmers provide a home-stay opportunity and general education on the workings of the farm.

Children who visit the farms often have not seen a live duck, or pig, and have not picked an apple right off the tree. This form of expanded agritourism has given birth to what are often called entertainment farms. These farms cater to the pick-your-own crowd, offering not only regular farm products, but also food, mazes, open-pen animals, train rides, picnic facilities, and pick-your-own produce. In the United States, dude ranches offer tourists the chance to work on cattle ranches and sometimes include cattle drives.

Please submit the location and details for agritourism farms in the Philippines.
