Farm tourism in Kerala is being developed as a relatively new tourism product. Malabar, being an agricultural dominated place, has tremendous potential for developing Farm Tourism in a big way without much additional investment. There is a possibility of converting potential cropped areas of the farmers' land as tourist attractions with minimum intervention to transfer the benefits of tourism directly to the farmers of farmers'club. The various schemes underway are intended to prepare the Farms/Plantations of farmers'land to receive tourists by presenting a positive image of the farm and of agriculture as a whole, in view of revitalising the agriculture sector of Kerala through tourism. The Government decision to allow 5% of the farm area for tourism purpose has been an encouraging factor for the tourism industry. Numerous projects are being planned by the state to prepare the Farms/Plantations of Kerala to receive tourists by presenting a positive image of the farm and of agriculture as a whole, in view of revitalising the agriculture sector through tourism and increasing tourist traffic from high end tourism to village tourism.
