It can be difficult to say goodbye to your new "farm family" when vacation is over. You want to hang on to that feeling - the connection and quietude.

Farmers are sharing their daily lives with increasing frequency via social media, and one of our favorite ways to see what they're up to is to follow on Instagram. Here, in no particular order, are six more farms or ranches (with farm stays) to follow on Instagram right now!

The Williams Farm, Newborn, Georgia

The Williams Farm Rooster

The rustic farmhouse at The Williams Farm is located just an hour from Atlanta, Georgia.

The farmhouse has one large room upstairs that can accommodate up to 8 guests, and a main level suite to accommodate two. Meals can be included and served family-style, or may be self-prepared in the full kitchen. They welcome children under 12, pets, weddings, and other parties or special events.


Asgaard Farm and Dairy, Au Sable Forks, New York

Asgaard Farm Goat

The Emmerson House at Asgaard Farm and Dairy is the historic estate of Rockwell Kent, a well-known artist, writer, adventurer, political activist, and farmer.

This diversified family farm has a goat dairy and creamery at its core, with grass-fed and grass-finished beef, pastured pork, poultry and eggs.
