Choosing to stay on a farm or a ranch can be very beneficial and informational for you and your family or group. Popular activities include picking fruit and feeding animals. The farm stays that are the absolute best in my opinion are those that are on vineyards. There are plenty of these spread throughout Australia, Italy, Portugal, Spain and North America. Don’t get too attached to any labels. For instance, when you read Italy there is a strong chance that you automatically imagined “Tuscany.” Instead, look at all the regions of Italy, especially the Piedmont region for the best priced getaways and views. The city of Asti is also a treat to drink your way through. With the growing expectations in comfort, most farm stays boast a pool for hot summer days.
Pushing agritourism in Italy has become a focus due to their epiphanies lead by scares of Global Warming and city overpopulation. People all over Europe have been retreating to farm stays and ranches more and more often. The United States has also been seeing an increase in agritourism. In the 1970s agritourism was extremely popular, and is seeing an impact.
One of the reasons for its popularity is the demand in people wanting to know where their food comes from. Those who run their farm stays, vineyards, ranches are usually extremely knowledgeable and passionate in their profession and explain the entire process, then prepare the meals for their guests in the most delicious way they know.
Eat right, breath clean air, relax and revive at a farm stay near you. Balance your life. See what it’s like to hike through a vineyard, eat a gourmet meal and relax with a glass of wine under a clear sky.
