Off the Farm activities Holds Dominance with 60% of demand Share in 2019

Many farmers, rural advocates, and government officials are enthusiastic about the prospects of direct farm marketing to boost farm income and promote rural development. Direct marketing plays a significant role in rural development by attracting agricultural tourists, encouraging a climate of entrepreneurship and innovation, and promoting alternative forms of agriculture. Pick-your-own fruit and berry operations, cut-your-own Christmas trees, and roadside stands are common forms of direct marketing.

Moreover, the low price associated with on-farm fruits is also a key factor that attracts agritourists. The farm price is often only a fraction of retail food prices. For larger farms, direct selling can be an important sideline operation or a means of selling products that do not meet the quality or size standards required by wholesalers. Thus, farmers are actively participating in direct farm marketing, which boosts growth of the agritourism market.
