Farmstay breaks in the UK are an "excellent way" of "getting back to nature", according to VisitBritain.
There has been a doubling of interest in UK farmstay holidays during the last 12 months, according to responsibletravel.com.
This reflects a growing interest in agro tourism that exploits the growth of environmental concerns and a desire for organic produce.
Sian Brenchley, a spokesperson for VisitBritain, explained that farmstay holidays also offer holidaymakers an excellent learning opportunity.
She said: "The attraction of farmstay breaks is that they are an excellent way of experiencing Britain in a new way, getting back to nature and really being able to be fully involved in the holiday experience.
"They are proving extremely popular for families with children and the experience not only provides a holiday break, but also education."
Meanwhile, the Soil Association”s Organic Fortnight, which promotes sustainable agriculture, will be coming to an end this weekend on Sunday September 21st.
