Kids often get the chance to have educational experiences, but what about agricultural ones? For your next family vacation, consider booking a room at an organic farmstay.
At a farmstay, your family can sleep at a working farm (often in deluxe digs) and rise with the rooster’s crow to help milk goats, feed chickens, pick fruit or gather produce. Or just sleep in—it’s up to you. (For long, sunny days on the farm, be sure to stock up on kid-safe sunscreen before you go—here are the best 5 sunscreens for kids and babies.)
One major perk of these organic farmstays is the bed and breakfast aspect: in addition to getting to know a working farm, you and your kids will get to chow down on the freshest organic food you’ve ever had.
Here’s a round-up of the best organic farmstays for families.
