Anna Kapała , Izabela Kurtyka-Marcak
AbstractThe aim of the paper is to answer the question how legal regulations shape the scope of agritourism activity and whether the agritourism regulation enhance the local farming. The research is based on the dogmatic method and empirical evaluation of data collected through surveys concerning agritourism farms in Lower Silesia. The research showed, that on the one hand, the law regulations providing exemptions and facilities for agritourism led to its development, but on the other hand they have conditioned the way of its conducting. The survey showed that most of the respondents run agritourism in such size and in such a way as to benefit from the legal exemptions. Despite being conducted in limited size, it is a profitable business and is an important source of income primarily for small farms. Most of the respondents also willingly take advantage of the legal possibility of selling home meals. However, the percentage of farmers engaged in agricultural production for the purpose of feeding their guests is not high. It can therefore be said that regulations do not play a role in combining agritourism with local farming.
