An agritourism experiences and destinations development company has granted tourists the chance to indulge in an agricultural experience in several Jordanian rural areas. Bookagri.com has partnered with local farmers to allow tourists to participate in hands-on activities like milking goats, beekeeping, and traditional baking, said Founder and CEO of Bookagri Rudaina Haddad during a lecture hosted by the Jordan Society for Scientific Research, Entrepreneurship, and Creativity on Sunday. She added that tourists can choose from agritourism destinations in Salt, Jerash, Ajloun, and Karak and spend the day with farmers or even stay overnight in the Bookagri’s accommodation. Furthermore, the project offers visitors tours, cooking lessons, home product development, and an interactive platform, according to Haddad. She stated that agricultural tourism in Jordan has seen a significant increase in popularity, with numerous visitors coming to experience producing agricultural and animal products and acquire manual farming skills. Stressing Bookagri’s economic benefit for local communities, Haddad said women can generate cost-free income from their farms’ resources as well as interact with foreigners.
