Hosting tips

CRAFTED CONTENT

Farmer Stays will craft content to bring your listing to life, drive more bookings and get higher search results. Woohoo!

Attract FOODIE guests

Foodie guests are looking for ways to celebrate where their food and drink comes from and indulge in it at every opportunity. Offer farm tours, local produce hampers, cooking classes, farm to table dining experiences and ensure your listing is full of local tips on where to wine and dine in your local area.

Attract NATURE guests

Nature guests are looking for ways to relax and connect with nature. Offer a collection of books on the local environment and wildlife, routes for scenic walks on the farm or your local area to discover national parks/scenic locations. Include ideas on places to have a picnic on the farm or add a fire pit for night time star gazing and yarns.

SUSTAINABILITY

Let's cut down on landfill together by using environmentally friendly products and ensure you have a recycling bin available at your stay.

FAQ

We are an Australian owned and operated start up company with big goals based in sunny Queensland. We want to build a travel platform that can build community resilience, sustainability and give back. We do this by creating a space where people can book and connect with Farm Stays managed directly through the platform by owners and property managers we refer to as “Farmer Hosts”.

Agritourism is what we are hoping to share with the world. It is the act of visiting a region to engage with farm or food-related businesses (including restaurants, markets, produce outlets and natural attractions) for enjoyment, education, or to participate in activities and events.

If you are a farm with sustainable farming at your forefront or a historic farming property with a farm house, cabins, guest rooms, a space to camp, venue hire, the list goes on… we want you! Contact our team anytime to discuss your farm stays potential.

No monthly signup fee. We only charge a 2% host service fee and a 5% guest service fee upon bookings.

Yes, certainly. We just ask that you link your ical calendars with your Farmer Stays calendar to ensure smooth booking management.

Farmers/owners are promptly paid the Monday after the guest has completed their stay.
