We will pick you up from the airport, bus station, or train station and
deliver you to your Farm-stay family. You’ll spend most of your time
engaged with your farm family on the farm. Twice a week we will pick
you and the other participants up from their farms. We will all head
off for a fun Country Life Activity together like hiking, farm touring
or pie making. On your departure date, we will deliver you back to the
airport, bus station or train station.
Farm-stays are similar to Home-stays in the fact that you stay with a
family and participate in the day-to-day activities of your host
family. Only farm stays are located on a farms, where life is slow fun
and physical. You’ll pass the days engaged with your host family in
activities like gardening, milking cows, feeding animals, collecting
eggs, picking vegetables or maybe you’ll do a town run or attend a
community. Although farmers work all the time, you will not be expected
to keep pace. You can work as much or as little as you want. The
farm-stay families all understand that you are there to experience the
country life not be free labor. Your host family will provide 3 meals a
day and a private bedroom. It’s polite to keep similar hours as your
host family and attend all meals. Farm-stays are great opportunities
really get submerged into the culture of American hart land

activities focused on country living skills and outdoor fun! We will
