Helpful information

Farm seasons differ from farm to farm depending on the type of farming in the geographical area.  We have developed the website, so the tourism industry can directly contact the farmer to find out what months are best for Agritourism bookings.  We are the only professional body in South Africa that focuses on farmers and their tourism activities.  We are not a booking site, but believe passionately in creating a healthy rural economy in South Africa.
