Handsome Brook Farm; Franklin, NY
Travel time: About three hours from NYC by car
It's easy enough to shop at the Greenmarket and call yourself a locavore, but if you really want to prove your mettle, make your next vacation a trip to a working farm. While enjoying the tranquillity of country life, you'll help feed calves, pigs and sheep, collect chicken eggs and learn to make jam using berries you picked fresh that day. The quiet rural location and homey B&B-style digs should ensure a restful night—but it's not compulsory to get up at the crack of dawn with your hosts. 607-829-2587, handsomebrookfarm.com. Rates start at $139 per night.
