We've stayed here several times, and every member of our family absolutely loves it. In fact, on this trip, after over-indulging in the amazing breakfast at the farm, we took our 12, 10 and 6 year olds to Hershey Park for the day, and within an hour, all three were begging to go back to the farm! It's that great. Why? So many reasons. To name just a few: Collecting eggs; holding chickens; feeding goats and sheep; giving a bottle to a baby lamb; playing with kittens in the barn (a huge favorite); swinging next to a corn field; eating the most incredible breakfast ever; rocking on the front porch; playing board games with new friends; learning about eco-friendly farming; seeing the inside of a real live dairy operation; waking up in a comfy bed, in a spotless room, to the sound of roosters crowing and sheep baa-ing. And shout out to Farmer Jim: 79 years old and still flawlessly driving the tractor, cracking jokes, giving hugs, entertaining the kids by drinking milk straight from the cow, and sharing his vast knowledge of farming, dairy operations, Lancaster County, and life in general with all those who care to ask (and you should).
