As reported by S. Kirk Walsh, in the New York Times, May 6, 2007:

” Agritourism takes the bed-and-breakfast model one step further, providing a rural respite on working farms, where travelers can pick berries for breakfast and learn to milk a cow. At MaryJanesFarm in Moscow, Idaho, visitors sleep in walled tents (above) equipped with antique propane ranges and outdoor showers. Weatherbury Farm in Avella, Pa., offers suites in a renovated livery stable overlooking its cattle-grazing meadow.

At both establishments, guests are invited to participate in farm chores. “We want people to understand the source of their food,” says Marcy Tudor of Weatherbury Farm.”
