Give Your Family a One-of-a-Kind Experience With a Local Farmstay Vacation Near Albany: Here’s a Quick Overview


There’s often a lot of pressure to make summer travel plans that are exciting yet enriching, and a farmstay vacation truly fits the bill. If you’ve not familiar with all that a farmstay entails, this brief overview will cover many common questions so you can start planning your getaway.

Farmstays Aren’t Just for Summer

Your farm vacation isn’t limited to spring and summer. Farm animals need care and feeding year-round! Plus, with activities like leaf peeping and apple picking in fall to cross-country skiing and sledding in winter, you’ll never run out of seasonal activities on-site and nearby.

Farmstays Offer Fun, Too

You might think that a farmstay is all work and no play, but many offer plenty of opportunities to make your vacation feel like a vacation. Peaceful surroundings, private ponds or pools and stargazing can make it a trip to remember.

Your Help Makes a Big Difference to a Local Farmer

Hosting families for farmstays is a great way for you to support your local farm. This extra income helps sustain a working farm during lean times, and farm families enjoy sharing all that goes into living on and working the land.
