Farm-stay holiday

In this era of eco food and environmental thinking a new holiday nische has emerged – farm-stay holidays.

If you’re looking to get your hands dirty, Germany’s Landtourismus.de identifies farm stays that encourage you to harvest potatoes and care for your new barnyard friends (click on the “cooperation possible” link).

If your idea of appreciating nature is more along the lines of watching the sunset while sipping an earthy chianti, Italy’s agritourismo.net lists accommodations with nearby wine tours.

Australianfarmstay.com.au features farms that combine both hands-on activities, like bottle-feeding and milking goats, with high-end amenities, like a morning hot-air balloon ride capped off with a glass of champagne.
