As reported by Lynette Hingle, in the traveltips.usatoday.com July 14, 2010:   

" If your idea of the perfect vacation equates to getting as far away as you can from the crowded, bustling metropolis you call home, you may find what you are looking for in a working farm vacation. Working farm vacations, a division of a growing "green" vacation trend called agri-tourism, offers you and your family the chance to reconnect with the earth by performing farm chores, such as milking cows and picking eggs, during your stay on a fully functional farm. Several farms in the United States offer working vacations that give you the option to participate when you want to, or just relax and enjoy the slow-paced, peaceful downtime and country-style activities, events and educational opportunities that the farm life has to offer....

Weatherbury Farm

Weatherbury Farm encompasses 100 acres of rolling farmland in southwestern Pennsylvania, about 45 minutes south of Pittsburgh. The working grass-fed beef and sheep farm features three guest suites and three guest rooms with amenities such as clawfoot bath tubs, cathedral ceilings and in-suite bathrooms. The farm offers daily breakfasts and a propane gas grill for preparing your own lunches and dinners. Morning chores include feeding goats, chickens, rabbits and sheep, hand-pumping water for the animals and weeding the vegetable garden. After chores, you and your family can relax at the seasonal pool, wander around the farm's meadows and fields, or tour the onsite blacksmith shop. Weatherbury Farm also hosts a children's educational program and seasonal folk music workshops, and is near local attractions, such as Creegan Animation Factory, Indian Run Public Golf Course and Duncan Miller Glass Museum. Weatherbury Farm 1061 Sugar Run Road Avella, PA 15312 724-587-3763 weatherburyfarm.com."
