Down-Home Away from Home: 8 Great Farm Stays for Families
A farm vacation connects you and your family with nature and a simpler way of living. Kids feed goats and lambs, collect eggs, and get on a first-name basis with resident donkeys and alpacas like the one pictured above at Tusculum Farm in Maryland. You’ll spend your days completing chores or tromping through creeks, pastures, and barns (pro tip: bring boots). When night falls, the whole brood can sit outside and admire starry skies. If that sounds like your idea of good, old-fashioned fun, here are eight (mostly) budget-friendly farms that are great for families. E-i-e-i-o!

How Maryland’s most diverse county celebrates the holidays
Joi Brown grew up in Montgomery County, Md., doing community theater amid a “relatively diverse” group of teens in the ’70s. But when she returned five years ago, after spending three decades in the Midwest, she noticed that the population was more multicultural than ever. “It certainly feels like it’s crackling with diversity, and it’s really exciting,” said Brown, the artistic director and vice president of programming for Strathmore, a nonprofit multidisciplinary arts center in North Bethesda. “I love that when I go to the grocery store, I hear four or five languages, every single time.”

This Circa 1747 Farm Was Converted into a Cozy Bed-and-Breakfast
Tusculum Farm dates back to 1747 when it was built by prominent judge Henry Griffith. In the 1960s, Carl and Virginia Freeman purchased the Gaithersburg, Maryland, property to raise their family. Over the years, they cared for Tusculum and turned the farm into a place they loved. It then became home to their son Joshua, his wife Michelle, and their children, who remain the owners today. Lucky for us, they decided to open the farm to the public in 2015. Designer Martha Blair Fitzgerald, who specializes in giving a modern spin to charming historic homes, was tasked with turning the farmhouse into a bed-and-breakfast. If you’re ready to move in, go ahead and book your stay at tusculumfarm.com.

Country Getaways Await at Montgomery County Ag Reserve
Less than an hour away from the constant gridlock and seemingly endless construction in DC, 93,000 acres of space await. This land is protected in what’s known as the Agricultural Reserve, or “Ag Reserve,” in Montgomery County. Given protected status in 1980, the Ag Reserve is perhaps one of the best examples of land conservation in the country. It encompasses a third of the county’s land, including everything from orchards and vegetable farms to pastures and estates.
