Here’s a neat idea for a family vacation – go stay on a working farm. Don’t worry – a farm vacation isn’t all manual labour and sleeping in the hay loft. Some farms offer full packages, including comfortable accommodations, hands-on activities, and amazing meals with the freshest ingredients possible.
I think this is a great idea, especially for urban families. You can read more about farm vacations in the States, and find a farm near you (or perhaps further away – a destination farm?) on the Farm Stay US website. I would love to visit this one in Pennsylvania. It would make an easy road trip from Toronto, and they have a pool for post-farming lounging and swimming!
