Live in a farm amongst a community of shepherds, lend a hand at farming… think about those times when life was simpler. Operating in a drought-prone area, where there are no conventional tourism draws, such as heritage monuments or natural attractions, the project relies entirely on the cultural assets and farming activities of this community of shepherds.

The Baramati Agri Tourism project has a wide and direct impact, with 100% local involvement in over 350 agritourism centres in Maharashtra. About 80-85% of the profit is channelled directly to the villagers, who double as guides and travel operators, when they are not working in their farms, growing local produce organically, using harvested rainwater. All local sourcing is done within a 2 km radius.
