The research project aims at understanding branches of the organic sector, in order to develop effective measures to sustain and enhance them.
The research project will study the practices of organic agritourism enterprises and organic farms, certified and not, which take place in a geographic area of particular cultural, ecological and landscape value within the province of Treviso, the Montello and its five municipalities. In this part of the province, despite its strong vocation for agritourism, organic farms and enterprises are a scattered reality, small in number. Paired with small-scale sustainable agriculture, these farms and enterprises have the potential to be the wardens of landscape, food and cultural heritage, they preserve biodiversity and they can have positive economic and also social impacts.
