If you've always wanted to experience what farm life is like, plan a visit to one of these 3 vacation destinations in Wisconsin!

Unique Vacation Destinations

Whenever the weather starts getting colder I often find myself daydreaming about my family's next vacation. Sure these vacation dreams usually involve sand, water, and tropical drinks, but sometimes I feel the urge to experience something totally different and unique.

If different is what you crave for your next vacation too, how does enjoying a relaxing vacation petting cute animals,  feeding baby cows, or going on horse-drawn carriage rides sound?

Experience Farm Life in Wisconsin

I must admit that staying at a working farm on vacation is not something I've ever thought of doing before, but after seeing this article from Travel Wisconsin, I'm definitely thinking about it now!

Travel Wisconsin's article highlights five farms that "give travelers the chance to escape from the everyday and experience all the fun of a working farm", and these three really piqued my interest:

1. The Dairy At the Wegmueller Farm in Monroe, Wisconsin

This working dairy farm features a newly remodeled farmhouse that has 4 bedrooms, (that can sleep up to 12 guests), 2 bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, and plenty of entertainment choices including milking cows, feeding baby calves, riding horses, hiking, and so much more. Get more info, here.


2. Palmquist Farm in Brantwood, Wisconsin

This working beef and lumber farm actually has 5 different lodging options to choose from, and has plenty of experiences to enjoy, even in the winter months. You can enjoy a horse-carriage ride through the snow, go cross-country skiing, ice skating, sledding, relax in a sauna and so much more!

Stay in one of 4 bedrooms in a uniquely renovated barn that really offers a taste of farm life. Rainbow Ridge Farms has a whole bunch of cute and friendly animals to play with, and they even offer goat yoga!
