Farm Stay Accommodations
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 opportunitieson select Friday and Saturday nights in June, July & August:
1. B&B Farm Staywith continental breakfast. Light morning chores -- collecting eggs and, perhaps feeding baby animal(s)** 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. Lightmorning 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.

"We're staying in the Carriage House, one of three two-story suites in the newly renovated guest barn that's perfect for the four of us. First is a living room with two sleeper sofas, a gas fireplace and plenty of running-around room. Up in the old hayloft area, the bedroom boasts one queen and one single bed -- which our three-year old immediately claims as her 'big-girl farm bed' -- covered in charming, worn-soft lines of red-and-cream ticking and Laura Ashley florals. An ancient trunk hold extra pillows and blankets, while the bathroom has a real claw foot tub and a pull-chain toilet (a big winner with our recently potty-trained preschooler)."
