Ever considered staying on a farm? How about a farm stay in Vermont, New Hampshire, or Michigan when the leaves are changing and there are pumpkins in the field? Or a farm just about anywhere that grows apples hauling out the cider press for some of what you might call ‘liquid gold’? Cows and goats are still being milked. Winter squash is still in the field. The chickens are still laying eggs, although fewer as the days grow shorter. Today’s guest, Scottie Jones, is the founder of the the U.S. Farm Stay Association and owner of Leaping Lamb Farm in Oregon. She’s here to tell us more this unique travel trend that connects travelers with farmers.
