It's the 21st century -- and Grandma no longer lives on the family farm. We invite you to visit us at our family's farm and make some down-on-the-farm memories. Escape to the tranquility of our meadows, gardens, cows, chickens and sheep. Join Farmer Dale for morning chores. Children welcome.

Accommodations are located in a cluster of historic farm buildings. Suites sleep up to 7.

Staffed by our family of three, Weatherbury Farm is a working grass-fed beef and sheep farm and not a Disneyworld environment (with a staff of thousands). Certified organic grains (soft & hard wheat, oats, spelt, and open-pollinated corn) are also grown on the farm and milled into flour.

Weatherbury Farm has been awarded the 2012 Sustainability Award by Pennsylvania Certified Organic.

Please check our website for weekends in June, July and August that we will be offering bed and breakfast or farm experience weekends.
