The best farm stays for families are naturally interactive engaging all ages in the rhythm of farm life.

No two farm stay vacations will ever be the same, but all offer positive ways to engage in rural life, make discoveries and create memories. The best farm stays for families are naturally interactive, engaging all ages in the rhythm of farm life. From digging turnips in a winter garden and identifying tracks left in freshly fallen snow to gathering eggs and milking a goat, winter farm stays offer exceptional 3-G experiences.

“Staying on a farm reminds us of the seasonality of farming. Farmers don’t harvest crops all year round (except maybe California!). There is a process of preparation and planning in the winter months, yet eggs will need to be collected; many farmers breed their livestock to drop their babies as early as February; cows and goats are often starting up their milk rotation again and some farms even offer opportunities for sleigh rides and snow shoeing,” explains Scottie Jones, Executive Director of the U.S. Farm Stay Association.
