"Simplify .... You'll learn how to live with less on Weatherbury Farm, where visitors spend their days helping Farmer Dale (his actual name) feed sheep and goats and collect eggs for breakfast."
Everyday with Rachel Ray Magazine, December/January 2008

"...a destination where families can spend a week or a weekend experiencing hands-on farm life."
Pennsylvania Magazine, March/April 1999

"The notion that living on a farm could be a vacation is not new, but it's a concept whose time has arrived. Have children ever been less aware of rural life? "
The Baltimore Sun
, May 19, 2002

" The perfect place to stay"

It's the 21st century -- and Grandma no longer lives on the family farm. We invite you to stay with us at our family's working farm and make some down-on-the-farm memories. Escape to the tranquility of our meadows, gardens, cows and sheep. Weatherbury Farm is a quiet place, removed from the cares of the world (but just 45 minutes southwest of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) -- the unique farm stay you have always hoped to find.

Staffed by our family of three, Weatherbury Farm  is a working grass-fed beef and sheep farm and not a Disneyworld environment (with a staff of thousands). Certified organic grains (soft & hard wheat, oats, spelt, open-pollinated corn, emmer and einkorn) are also grown on the farm.  

If you are looking to experience a real working farm, please consider a stay at  Weatherbury Farm.
In 2015, Weatherbury Farm will offer two types of farm stay opportunities:

1.  Traditional Bed and Breakfast with continental breakfast, the opportunity to enjoy life on the farm and/or explore the countryside. There will not be any morning chores.

2. Farm experience stays (on select Friday and Saturday nights). with a hearty farm fresh breakfast followed by morning chores. Families visiting the farm for our farm experience are invited to participate in our Weatherbury Farm Kids Program. Our educational farm experience stay is appropriate for adults and children (usually 8 & older) who want to learn more about farming and agriculture. The emphasis will be on the organic and sustainable production methods used at Weatherbury Farm.
Please note that If you would like to come for a farm experience weekend, additional nights can be added at the 2 night farm bed and breakfast rate.
For example, a family of three staying for the 2 night farm experience would pay $545.16  for both nights of the farm experience and could add additional nights for $195.45/night.

Weatherbury Farm is a great vacation for the whole family. Not only does Weatherbury Farm offer the opportunity to learn about life on the farm, it is a great home base for exploring Pittsburgh, southwestern Pennsylvania,  the northern panhandle of West Virginia and eastern Ohio. Families will especially enjoy the farm's 100 acres, swimming pool (on a summer's day) and kids corner after a day of visiting sites.

Many families have fun watching (from a distance, of course) Farmer Dale & Farmer Nigel at work in the fields. Or sometimes (more often than we like), they may be working on keeping our farm equipment in good running order.  Some families like to get their hands dirty and help Marcy weed the garden! Some families  choose to also visit nearby attractions during their stay. Most families, however, enjoy the opportunity to kick back and relax on the farm and enjoy life in the slow lane.

To find out what's new on the farm, visit our farm stay update page.
