Hampapuram farm draws multiple visitors

Hampapuram (Anantapur): The 125-acre lush green organic vegetable and horticulture integrated farm with dairying and sheep rearing at Hampapuram village in Raptadu mandal in the district is a model organic farm and an educational centre for farmers to have exposure on farm mechanisation, organic farming, marketing and exporting of produce.


The government has recognised the model farm as an agri-tourism destination. As per the government scheme, agri-tourism farms are to be promoted with the help of model farmers, who would be willing to develop their farms with greenery, horticulture plantations and guest rooms for visiting tourists. The idea is to promote rural tourism and celebrate rural festivals.
