It's time to get your hands dirty: In an upcoming Trip Coach column, we're digging into farmstay vacations.

As always, we want to hear from you first so we can put together a story that'll address all of your questions and concerns. If you've ever had questions big or small regarding farmstays, farm visits, or agritourism operations of any kind, now's the time to ask.

You might be wondering:

What are the best resources for finding and evaluating farmstays?

Do guests really have to do chores? What kind?

How "hands-on" are the activities? What happens if I don't want to milk a cow?

What kind of lodging can guests expect?

Are certain farms better than others for families? Or couples? Or solo travelers?

Are certain parts of the world more likely to have farms that welcome travelers?

How much do farmstays cost? Is it cheaper if guests work in the fields or tend to the animals?

Now's your turn. Fire away with any questions you have about farmstays, and we'll do our best to answer your most pressing concerns in an upcoming issue of Budget Travel.
