ourism and Agriculture examines regional specific cases of the interface between tourism and agriculture, looking at the impacts of rural restructuring, and new geographies of consumption and production. To meet the need for a more comprehensive appreciation of the relationships and interactions between the tourism and agricultural economic sectors, this book: examines the multiple relationships that exist between tourism and agriculture in various contexts; considers the factors that influence the nature of these relationships; and explores avenues for facilitating synergistic relationships between tourism and agriculture. Given the place-specific nature of tourism and agriculture relationships, these contributions offer case studies from a wide range of geographic contexts whilst themes of diversification, economic development, and emerging new forms of production and consumption, are threaded throughout the entire book.
