We (two adults--no kids) came here last July because it was on my "bucket list" to stay at a working farm. It was all I imagined and then some. The farmhouse and grounds are lovely. The chores were so much fun and a great learning experience. Farmer Frank and Sherri are wonderful hosts/educators/cooks! George, the farmhand, was a great resource and even took us fishing on his break! My friend celebrated his 62nd birthday there with a lovely cake and a tradition where every guest "signs" the mirror! How cute! I enjoyed meeting the other guests at the delicious family style meals. Being a newly-retired teacher, it was an absolute joy to see the guests' children enjoying their stay there. It's the first time in ages that I have seen children without their hand-held devices outside or at the dinner tables!! They were always sad to leave as were we. We will be back! I look forward to having a glass of wine on the back porch after Sherri's evening work is done! They are hard workers. We left feeling like we had made some new friends.
