Farm tourism is an old phenomenon with new economic and social significance for farming, tourism and rural communities. Many features of the farm tourism sector are similar worldwide, but there are distinct regional differences. The portfolios of farm tourism products offered, in particular, differ significantly both between and within continents, producing regional signatures analogous to those in other sectors of the tourism industry. Farm tourism in Europe is recognizably different from farm tourism in North America. Within Europe, there are differences between the livestock landscapes and farmstays of the colder North and Alps, and the vineyard and olive landscapes of the warmer South. Within North America, there is a division between dude ranches in the West and so-called agritainment in the East.
