Pangasinan Governor Amado Espino III lauded the Department of Tourism (DOT) for pushing farm tourism.
The Pangasinan politiko said the provincial government is seeking to transform breeding stations in Mangatarem into an agri-tourism site.
Espino said they plan to put up a mini-zoo inside the farm.
He also said pushing for farm tourism will raise awareness among the younger generation on the value of agriculture.
“It will be a farm, at the same time, a site where learnings on farming will be passed on to the younger generation,” he said.
