What is Eco-organic tourism?
When agro-ecotourism evolves around an organic farm, it is referred to as eco-organic tourism. The valorization of specific elements of the agro-ecosystem landscape offers an additional economic resource for environmental protection. Conversion to organic management in agricultural areas and the development of connected activities such as tourism are increasing. When farms are organically-managed, they increase the motivation for tourists’ visits. New tourist expectations have enhanced the quality of the supply such as diversified farm landscape, environmentally-sound farm-house architecture and local/typical gastronomy.
Benefits of Eco-organic tourism
Organic tourism can be used as a tool for sustainable development of a destination in minor territory and whole country. Origin of organic tourism comes from ecotourism. Ecotourism is exclusively focused on nature, culture and farms which are part of this nature and culture. When ecotourism evolves around organic products is referred to organic tourism. Organic farms offer an additional economic resource for environmental farms and their protection. Organic farms are also vital for human health because organic foods are produced without conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.
