“Michelle’s (9) three favorite things: the sheep, the dogs, and the peace itself. Lauren’s three favorite things: the views, the running water, and the friendly animals. Caroline’s three favorite things: the wind in the trees, the friendly animals, the quiet! A wonderful time - thank you.” —Charlottesville, VA
This is something useful to know. Imagine a scenario where out of state relatives or friends from a large city are coming to visit. They lead intense lives with little time for reflection and rarely see natural expansive settings. There are a lot of them, too many for your house, and you don’t want to be rude by suggesting a hotel. Here’s an idea! Tell them about Farm Stay, a place friends like this can experience as a bonus to their visit with you in theCorvallisarea. The farm is technically in Alsea. Are you having a hard time imagining being engaged enough to be content on a farm? Here is what another guest said:
“We don’t want to leave! Your farm feels like a story book place and I know there are fairies living down at the creek. My childhood imagination is stirred. Allowing others, especially city folk, the chance to roam here is a true blessing, a balm for the senses. We’ll be back and look forward to staying in touch with you. Many, many, thanks.” —Holly, Pablo, and Petra, WA
Interesting. Another family from Colorado has made this an annual family trip as a way to create a tradition that forces everyone to slow down and just be together. The farm has generated quite a bit of media attention. Here is a description in an article titled “Farm Fresh Vacations” on urbanfarmonline.com.
Leaping Lamb Farm:On this Oregon farm, all of the ingredients for a farm-fresh supper are just steps from its cabin door. Blueberries, raspberries, apples, grapes, lettuce and other homegrown fruits and vegetables are free for the picking, and there is no shortage of fresh eggs. Be sure to ask proprietors Scottie and Greg Jones if there is any lamb in the freezer; their Katahdin crosses are perfect for grilling.
A working farm since 1896, Leaping Lamb Farm began offering farm stays in 2006. With just one cabin available to overnight guests, it is one of the most private farm stays around.
Chickens, geese, horses and turkeys free range on Leaping Lamb farm, offering ample opportunities to feed and nuzzle the furry, feathered residents. There is even a colorful peacock strutting his stuff!
The main attraction is the flock of lambs in the pasture (it wouldn’t be Leaping Lamb Farm without them)! Scottie and Greg welcome help feeding and watering the farm’s four-legged namesakes.
One of the best things about the rural retreat is relaxing on the two-tiered deck overlooking the pastures and orchards after a farm-to-table supper.
Families have the option to do farm chores or just enjoy a book on the porch. Parents are creating memories that only agri-tourism activities like this offer to city dwellers. Farm vacationing is a growing and interesting trend. Below is current rate information as of the date of this post.
