Agroturism

AGRITOURISM

Agritourism is a combination of agricultural production and ordinary tourism that gives people the chance to visit farms and other agricultural companies, experience country living and rural ways of life and contribute to everyday farm work. Agritourism is not the same as rural tourism, but is an important branch of it. Whereas rural tourism can involve almost all of the tourism farms operating in a region, agritourism services can only be offered by companies whose main area of operations is the preparation of agricultural and fishery products.

WHAT IS THE AIM OF AGRITOURISM?

Agritourism aims to offer small and medium-sized agricultural producers the chance to earn extra income by providing a tourism service. Alongside their main activities, this service can be accommodation or catering, but also active pursuits connected to the nature of a specific agricultural sector. For example, a farm can run its own produce store, offer visitors the chance to pick their own fruit or vegetables, provide educational programmes, hire out seminar rooms, open a farm restaurant, organise excursions on grazing lands, allow visitors to watch while the cows are milked, offer tastings of their products, run handicrafts workshops and much more.

THE AGRITOURISM LABEL

In order to clearly distinguish Estonia’s agritourism companies, the Central Union of Estonian Farmers created a label for the sector (along with classifications of services) in May 2018.

Farms whose operations meet the following conditions can apply for the label:

  • An agricultural undertaking whose primary area of operations is agriculture, raising the value of agricultural produce, apiculture or fishery and which offers a tourism service such as accommodation, active pursuits or excursions alongside its main operations may name itself an agritourism farm.
  • A farm on which a significant proportion of the work is done by the family or team running the farm may use the label.
  • At least one member of the family or team that runs the farm offering the agritourism service must live on the farm.
  • Farms using the agritourism label are subject to clear rules and regulations whose fulfilment is monitored by the Central Union of Estonian Farm Owners.

7 Kitsetalle OÜ

Ours is a small family farm with a modest number of goats, our main herd numbering just 30-40. We aim to offer pure products of the highest quality. Our range includes milk, yoghurt and cheese. Occasionally we also offer fresh goat meat as well as sausages and smoked meat.

High in energy, goat’s milk has a variety of benefits: it can be of help in the case of allergies and skin problems; it can improve your health generally, strengthening the body and boosting immunity; it can have a rejuvenating effect; and it normalises the microflora in your digestive tract.

Our farm has not been awarded an ecolabel, but we do raise our animals according to organic principles. All of our products are subject to laboratory analysis and the quality of our milk is regularly tested. Our company is a recognised producer. We use repellent on all of our goats, so there is no need for concern regarding ticks.

Hõbeda Mõis OÜ

Silver Goat Farm is on land that once belonged to Hõbeda Manor in Kadrina municipality in Lääne-Viru County. Hõbeda (meaning ‘silver’) was a farming manor in the 19th century, which in addition to its main building had two sheds, two barns, a dairy, an icehouse and a smithy. All that remains today is one of the sheds, the dairy and the icehouse.

Silver Goat Farm is a family company which started raising goats in spring 2015. We restored the shed and bought 12 local-breed Swedish kids. Most of our first summer was spent doting on and walking the young goats. That autumn we bought a billy goat, and by spring 2016 the results were there for all to see: kids galore! This meant we had to work fast to erect a cheese kitchen and aging room. The rest of the year was about learning through trial and error, leading to the launch of our goat’s cheeses and ice creams in 2017. At the moment we have 31 milking goats and produce around 300 kg of cheese a month.

Here on our farm you can talk to the goats, pat them and generally fall in love with them, plus take them for walks. We can also tell you about the history of the manor, give you a peek at our cheese kitchen and of course let you taste what we make. In summer you can also treat the goats to some tasty branches.

In 2019 we are planning to launch goat therapy and aerobics as well.

Groups are welcome on our farm – we speak Estonian, Russian, English and Finnish.
