Farm Vacations!

A different twist to staycations. Haycations or Farmcations: staying at someone else’s home for an interesting way to take time off. Agritourism is really taking off as people are getting more interested in being an active part of their food supply. Sometimes they just want education on where it comes from, but others may want a more hands on approach. An Active, eco-friendly, feel-good vacation option. For those people, here’s a really cool website:

It has information on staying at a farm or ranch in any of all 50 states! The idea is to be a part of a working farm and see how your food is raised (and how much work is involved!) Prices range, as do the work requirements and type of food raised there. Enjoy.


About Farm the Start

I grew up in cities from North Carolina all the way to Asia, but never really interacted with farm animals or farmers until I began college at Virginia Tech as an Animal & Poultry Sciences Major. I thought I would become a vet for puppies and kitties. Little did I know what I would learn and the love I'd find for the lifestyle, practices, people and animals involved in food production.

  1. Thanks for mentioning our relatively new website. We are all working farms and ranches with overnight accommodations, from camping to 5-star, to fit all needs. It helps our bottom line, which for many smaller operations is exceedingly tight. We hope, in return, our guests get the experience of a life time and really fresh eggs!

  2. Thanks for the comment Scottie! It is an awesome idea, both for farmer revenue and also for public education. Keep it up!
