Visit village is developing a platform where farmers can market their services, products, or experiences. To help eco-friendly farmers promote healthy nutrition, the platform also connects them with tourists, mountaineers and anyone looking for job in agriculture, without wasting time and money on marketing, distribution, or research.
Climate & Environment
Connecting farmers with citizens, tourists, start–ups and other farmers. Montenegro has an unrealized potential in agricultural tourism. There is an interest in and demand for local agricultural tourism services, including various types of experience opportunities, among people living in cities. Farmers, on the other hand, face difficulties showcasing their products and services, and lack additional workforce and skillsets.
A platform where farmers can market their services, experiences or products, without intermediaries, and without wasting time in marketing and distribution. In addition, Visit village allows people to support farmers by volunteering on farms in exchange for accommodation and food, as well as to grow their own food with farmers’ support for a reduced price.
Visit village aims to create an agricultural ecosystem, which connects farmers (producers) and tourists interested in agriculture and rural livelihoods. The solution focuses on sustainable farming to reduce the impact on the environment, while promoting responsible consumption and production. Furthermore, the team raises awareness about food production methods and their value, as well as how to efficiently reduce food waste. Currently, Visit village has conducted 100 field trips to rural areas in Montenegro to meet farmers and establish partnerships.
“An interesting experience that has changed and broadened our horizons. Excellently organized lectures – organizers ready to cooperate, lecturers experienced and eager to impart knowledge. We think that all start-ups should take part to this kind of programme.”
