We understand when some people hesitate to visit south Georgia in the thick of the hot summer season. But this area has its charms, in every season - and there's always a reason for a weekend getaway in Georgia. Need staycation ideas?
Whether you're looking to rent a romantic cabin in Georgia, or a weekend visit to do a digital detox, there is plenty to do down in south Georgia. Read on to hear more about staycation ideas, Georgia agritourism, and cabins at White Oak Pastures.
What is agritourism?
Combining agriculture and tourism brings visitors to a farm and connects the producer with the consumer. We encourage all of our customers to know how their food is produced. The ultimate commitment to understanding a food system is to visit it.
Why does White Oak Pastures have agritourism cabins?
People from all over the world visit our farm, but accommodations in the region can be inconvenient or severely limited. That's why we offer four cabins, a larger guest house, and the Pond House to stay in as you explore the area and enjoy our farm.
Cabin accommodations include air conditioning, heat, and a kitchenette (complete with our very own pasture-raised eggs to enjoy for breakfast, and coffee for your Keurig). If you need anything else, we sell everything from bug spray to snacks at our General Store.
Most of our accommodations don't have TV or WI-FI. Most guests actually find this a welcome change of pace, allowing you to enjoy our farm or the company you are with! If you are in need of a "digital detox", away from screens, emails, and the busy-ness of everyday life, consider getting away to one of our cabins.
What is there to do at White Oak Pastures?
You have an open invitation to visit White Oak Pastures. We are fiercely proud of what we do at White Oak Pastures and believe farms and food companies should operate with full transparency. In addition to tours of our farm, we offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our Dining Pavilion or our General Store.
We also host workshops on our farm. In our upcoming Waste Not, Want Not workshop on November 2nd, we showcase how we operate as a zero-waste farm. The full-day activities include touring our farm operations, making your own tallow candle, observing a leather crafting demonstration, and learning how to compost at home.
