Surface analysis, agri- +‎ tourism; chronologically, possibly preceded by one of its Romance cognates, such as Italian agriturismo, but the morphology thereof is cognately parallel anyway (agri- + turismo), and the cognates in English and Romance languages are of roughly contemporaneous advent per corpus Ngrams, suggesting that wherever the first such compound was coined, it was (naturally) almost immediately borrowed by the tourists who encountered it. The word is thus analogous to international scientific vocabulary in the respect that cognate forms with parallel affixes and stems coexist across various modern languages owing to interlingual/translingual contact.


English Wikipedia has an article on:

agritourism (uncountable)

  1. A form of tourism in which tourists stay in farms or agricultural villages, either to experience farm life, or as a base for exploring the countryside
