Farms and ranches open their doors and put guests to work
As farmers and ranchers know, living off the land is a challenge.
In an effort to diversify and boost their bottom line, many family-owned
operations are now inviting guests to come stay with them and learn about
agriculture. Farm vacations give visitors an authentic, hands-on experience
while helping their hosts preserve and share their way of life....
this grass-fed beef and lamb farm, Dale, Marcy and Nigel Tudor aim to teach
guests about agriculture, with an emphasis on fun. "In our 21st year of
offering farm vacations, we are finding the disconnect between city folks
and the farm is definitely growing," Marcy says. 'Last year Dale took guests
to the garden. He dug up potatoes and onions; no one in the group knew these
plants grew in the ground.' Breakfast includes farm-raised eggs and produce,
plus pancakes made with grains grown and milled on-site.
Chores range from pumping water to collecting eggs and weeding the garden.
Guests can also learn about farm machinery. Accommodations are available in
historic buildings. 724-587-3763. weatherburyfarm.com"
