Abstract

Farm-based recreation or Agri-Tourism is increasingly seen as a diversification strategy to promote rural economy and to protect farming incomes against market fluctuations. Within literature, there are many international studies that discuss the concept of agri-tourism in various ways. Wide-ranging definitions and labels concerning agri-tourism still create confusion as there is not a transparent and basic understanding of the characteristics that define it. The form and concept has been studied in various ways and contexts. It can be argued, however, that studies have yet to provide a clear and basic understanding of the characteristics that underpin and define agritourism. This paper makes a modest attempt to propose an ordinary typology for defining agritourism by identifying the key characteristics currently used to define agritourism and also place it in the backdrop of Tourists perception of Agri Tourism and its various attractions in Maharashtra. The paper also tries to create awareness.

Keywords: Agri Tourism, Typology, Perception, Characteristics
