THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE OFCA
Every host has his/her own specialties when it comes to preparing meals for guests.
Home cooked meals featuring fresh vegetables, preserves and home baking are served in a friendly atmosphere.
For those with allergies, most cooks are flexible, but prefer to be told of special needs before guests arrive.
Meals are often served with the hosts or other guests.
Accommodations vary as does the uniqueness of each host home and property size.
Bathroom facilities may be shared, private or ensuite.
Hot tubs, Jacuzzis, swimming pools or natural swimming areas may also be available. Please check the individual property listings.
Please note that it may not be possible for all of our Members to adhere to the Accessibility Regulations.
Activities vary from host to host, area to area, season to season.
Various hosts offer horseback riding or other opportunities such as feeding a baby calf or gathering the eggs.
Sometimes guests are welcome to help with daily feeding, milking or seasonal work such as haying, harvesting or gardening.
Sports on the property, such as swimming, fishing, horseback riding, hunting and skiing, are specified in the individual listings.
Inquire as to any special interests you may have.
