strawberry pickingAs you know, we love promoting farm stays. But we also love the fact that there are all kinds of events taking place on and around farms that don't necessarily mean staying over night. That's why we're so excited to announce the newest feature of the Farm Stay U.S. website... event calendars!

Up above, in the menu bar across the top of the site, you'll see Event Calendars at the far right. The drop-down menu is broken down by region, to help you find special events where you live or plan to travel. When you click on "more details", you'll be provided a link to the farm's listing and have the option to add the event to your own calendars.

Select the region you are interested in. Not sure? Click on the main "Event Calendars" page and you'll be given a list of all the states represented in each region.

Once you find an event you're interested in, you can do a few things:

  • click the link to copy the event to your own Google calendar
  • click on "more details" to be taken to the full event entry (which includes a hotlink back to the farm or ranch that posted the event)
  • open a map to the event location

Want to make sure you never miss an event? Find the region/calendar you're interested in, and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click the button to add to Google Calendar.



When Google Calendar opens, you'll be given the option to add the calendar to your "Other Calendars" section.




This is a brand new option for our farm, ranch, and vineyard members to promote special events, so be sure to check back now and then for new additions to the calendars!
