We will be open select weekends
in June, July and August 2017
Staffed by our family of
three, Weatherbury Farm is a working grass-fed beef and sheep farm and not a Disneyworld
environment (with a staff of thousands). Certified
organic grains (soft & hard wheat, oats, spelt, open-pollinated corn, emmer and
einkorn) are also grown on the farm and milled into flours.
We are farming three times as much acreage as we did several years ago -- however, we still want folks to have the opportunity to experience life on the farm. We've made a few changes to our farm stay format for 2017 -- farm learning experience weekends, farm stay weekends with light chores and group stay opportunities.
In 2017, Weatherbury Farm will offer three types of farm stay opportunities on select Friday and Saturday nights in June, July & August:
1. Farm Learning Experience with a hearty farm fresh breakfast followed each day by in-depth morning chores. Weatherbury's educational farm experience stay is appropriate for adults and children (usually 8 & older) who want to learn more about farming and agriculture. The emphasis will be on the organic and sustainable production methods used at Weatherbury Farm.
2. Farm Stay
with a light farm fresh breakfast.
Light morning chores
eggs and, perhaps feeding baby
3. Group farm stays -- rent all three suites for a family
& friends get-together. Light farm fresh breakfast. Light
will be offered on one or both mornings. Enjoy
life on the farm and/or explore the countryside.
Farm stay visitors are invited to participate in our Weatherbury Farm Kids Program.
At this time, we do not accept credit cards. Reservation deposit and final payment are by cash or check.
Weatherbury Farm is a great vacation for the whole family. Not only does Weatherbury Farm offer the opportunity to learn about life on the farm, it is a great home base for exploring Pittsburgh, southwestern Pennsylvania, the northern panhandle of West Virginia and eastern Ohio. Close by are Meadowcroft, a 19th century village outdoor museum which includes one of the oldest archaeological sites in North America and the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. Families will especially enjoy the farm's 100 acres, swimming pool on a summer's day and kids corner after a day of visiting sites.
Many families have fun watching (from a distance, of course) Farmer Dale & Farmer Nigel at work in the fields. Or sometimes (more often than we like), they may be working on keeping our farm equipment in good running order. Some families like to get their hands dirty and help Marcy weed the garden! Everyone enjoys the opportunity to kick back and relax on the farm and enjoy life in the slow lane.
Accommodations are in a cluster of historic buildings. The suites have ensuite baths, are air-conditioned and have a dorm sized refrigerator.
