"No matter how much things change at Weatherbury, they will still remain the same. Friendly hosts, cozy accommodations, great food - plus cows, goats, ducks, chickens and sheep who are just waiting for 'city folk' to bring them their food"

Greater Pittsburgh Region Metroguide
, 2003 edition
 

  • Weatherbury Farm offers farm stay vacations on our working beef and sheep farm. Certified organic grains (soft & hard wheat, oats, spelt, open-pollinated corn, emmer and einkorn) are also grown on the farm and milled into flours. Since the opening of Weatherbury Farm, we've hosted many distinguished guests including a Nobel prize winner, actors, writers, doctors, lady bugs, and spiders. Although flies are unwelcome to some of our first-time visitors, the cows seem to like them!
     
  • 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   --  collecting eggs and, perhaps feeding baby
    animal(s) ** will be offered on Saturday and/or Sunday morning. Enjoy a relaxing escape to the tranquility of life in the slow lane and/or explore the countryside.  
    ** Subject to farmers' schedule

    3. Group farm stays -- rent all three suites for a family & friends get-together. Light farm fresh breakfast. Light morning chores** will be offered on one or both mornings. Enjoy life on the farm and/or explore the countryside.
    Dates other than those listed on the calendar are available. Please inquire. 
    ** Subject to farmers' schedule

    After chores, the remainder of the day may be enjoyed exploring the farm or the countryside.
