We are starting to book up for the summer months at the farmstay guest house at TapRoot. If you'd like to join us here on the farm for a stay Jenn, (Josh's sister) will help coordinate your stay.
You can follow us on Facebook and our listing is also with Cottages in Canada and Airbnb. Our guest house is a great place to come with family and good close friends. It can sleep up to 11 people, has a sauna, a fireplace and the best part is that you can stroll around the farm whenever you like, harvest a few veggies for dinner, and generally just relax in the quiet of Swallows Nest.
Our dream is that members are able to come and stay and be here on the farm. Members receive a 15% discount on all bookings. All months are wondering, but I am drawn to November. It is also a great time to come and get away on the farm. This is the time of year that I tend to arrange a week long retreat at the Nest for some of my woman friends. It warms our hearts to learn of Grandmothers/grandfathers hosting their children and grandchildren at the farm or book clubs coming for a long weekend, and families who return year after year.
If the cost is prohibitive for you but you really wish to come and be on the farm, please send me a personal email firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know what dates you wish to come, how many people and how much you are willing/able to contribute for a stay. I will then see what is possible on our end.
We hope to see you at the farm.
Tickets are now available for the THREE Jamaican Jerk Pig Roasts this summer.
