Agritourism Research gives us the opportunity to contribute towards both human and environmental health in order to achieve sustainability in rural areas.
The purpose of the Research Articles is to analyse the Agritourism environment in order to forecast specific indicators and highlight future trends within the development of Agritourism on farms. Farmers will find this information relevant to assisting them in making decisions regarding capitalization on their farms.
