Farm Stay on an organic farm in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

If you are asking yourself, "How does a farm stay differ from a cottage vacation?"

Here's the answer: 

A farm stay happens at a working farm where you have easy access to orchards, fields and/or farm animals. You stay at the farm, but you aren’t obligated in any way to participate in chores.

TapRoot’s farmstay is geared towards helping families learn about the production of safe and nutritious food. At TapRoot Farms, sustainable, smaller-scale farming is practiced and we believe this model of food production is central to the future of family farming.  

Other farms choose to supply free lodgings in exchange for work. This is not the model used by TapRoot Farms.  When you stay with us, you are free to spend your time exactly as you choose.
