Monday Madness: Win a Farm Stay Vacation

Win a family farm stay

From the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA, farmers have settled the land and raised livestock and crops. Many of us have lost touch with our roots (pun intended) but it’s not too late to go back home to the farm and show our kids just what farming is all about.

Forward-thinking farmers have begun opening their very homes and guest houses to visitors while showing a true sense of hospitality. Guests are welcomed to spend days on the farm, sitting at the table with fresh farm-to-table meals, and helping with chores. Kids love the sense of freedom as they explore pastures and meet the friendly animals. Collecting eggs, feeding livestock, and even milking the cow is a new adventure that kids love. A farm stay is not just the perfect summer vacation destination. Every season offers unique activities and changes in the scenery. Go apple picking in the fall, maple sugaring in the early spring in Vermont, watch baby sheep and calves take their first steps, ski in the winter, and watch the flowers start to blossom in the spring.

FSUS logo - newKnown for its website www.farmstayus.com, the U.S. Farm Stay Association helps to connect travelers looking for a farm vacation with U. S. working farms and ranches hosting overnight guests as part of their operations. The stay is an experiential look into family farm life, an eye-opener for many urbanites who feel hugely disconnected from their food and the land. The lodging, the food, the landscapes, the experiences are as varied as the farms and their farm hosts scattered across the country. We like to say, “Real Farms. Real Food. Really Fun!”

 

East Coast Highlight: Liberty Hill Farm

Liberty Hill Farm

The allure of peace and quiet in the heart of Vermont has drawn guests to Liberty Hill Farm since 1984. The day begins with a bountiful country breakfast and ends with a homemade, sit-down meal around the dining room table. In between, guests can help out with farm chores and milking cows if they wish, or they can explore the beautiful farm. Kids can cuddle the barn kittens, collect eggs, chase chickens, and feed newborn calves. Every season offers new activities and adventures such as cross-country and downhill skiing in the winter, maple-sugaring in the early spring, and tubing down the White River in the summer. There are seven guest bedrooms in the Inn at Liberty Hill Farm (five rooms with queen-size beds, one room with two single beds, and one room with five single beds). There are four shared bathrooms and plenty of common areas for visitors to enjoy. Guests are welcomed to peruse the books and games available, as well as enjoy visiting with each other. There is free WiFi throughout the inn.

West Coast Highlight: Leaping Lamb Farm

Leaping Lamb Farm Stay

Leaping Lamb Farm is located in a quiet creek valley of the Coast Range, Oregon. This small family farm was originally homesteaded in 1862. They raise and sell lambs and hay, have a large market garden, greenhouse, orchards, and an abundance of other domesticated animals on the property. They offer the privacy of a self-contained guest cottage about 500 feet from the farm-house. The cottage includes two bedrooms, a full bath, complete kitchen, large airy living room, and multi-level deck with views overlooking orchards and pastures. Breakfast is included and they allow ‘grazing’ in the gardens in season. Guests are invited to assist in feedings and egg collection and to partake in any of the farming chores in which guests have interest. Or not! The farm is a retreat from city life. They promise country quiet (with a lazy rooster alarm clock), trails for hiking, the gentle Honey Grove Creek running through the property, and lots of room to roam.
