Summary:

The study revealed that between 2005 and 2013, more and more families began to receive visitors in their farms and sought an additional source of income in non-agricultural activities. And although within the eight-year time period there has not been a large increase in the number of agritourist farms (61), it is necessary to monitor changes in this area. It is especially important, because the largest increase was recorded in the areas of lower natural environment values (85), and a decrease in areas with high natural potential (24). Currently there are 350 agritourist farms in the rural area of the Kuyavian-Pomeranian province but their offer is really varied. Among the most frequently offered services were: a barbecue (97.7%) and a playground for children (67.7%). Possibility of putting up a tent (79.4%) or coming with animals (68.3%) were pointed out as often as a possibility to hire bicycles (60.8%). Services that require a huge financial commitment (swimming pool, sauna, gym, tennis court) have been reported to a much lesser extent. 57.4% of the examined rural households offer home made meals. A similar percentage (56.3%) sell food products produced in their farms. Only a few farms (38.8%) collaborate with institutions working for rural tourism in order to better promote their services and to cooperate with other parties. However, many (72.8%), introduces distinctive names of their farms to be noticed in a competitive market.
