"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.

We are farming twice as much acreage as we did several years ago -- however, we still want folks to have the opportunity to experience life on the farm. We've made a few changes to our farm stay format for 2016, including B&B farm stays with light chores and group stay opportunities.

In 2016, Weatherbury Farm will offer three types of farm stay opportunities on select Friday and Saturday nights in June, July & August:

1. B&B Farm Stay with continental breakfast. Light morning chores** will be offered on Saturday and/or Sunday morning. Enjoy life on the farm and/or explore the countryside.   ** Subject to farmers' schedule

2. Farm Stay Experience with a hearty farm fresh breakfast followed each day by in-depth morning chores. Weatherbury's 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.

3. Group farm stays -- rent all three suites for a family & friends get-together. Continental breakfast. Light morning chores** will be offered on one or both mornings. Enjoy life on the farm and/or explore the countryside.
Dates other than those listed on the calendar are available. Please inquire. 
** Subject to farmers' schedule

Farm stay visitors are invited to participate in our Weatherbury Farm Kids Program.

At this time, we do not accept credit cards. Reservation deposit and final payment are by cash or check. 


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.
