Nova Scotia farmers offer tourist stays

TORONTO - Would you pay to stay on a farm for your next vacation?

Some farmers in Nova Scotia are banking on farm tourism to bring in cash.  It's all part of a farm experience Nova Scotia farmers are hoping to sell to tourists.

But agriculture laws will have to change for farm-stays to become reality.  Many county by-laws don't allow farmers to use land for accommodations.  The province is working to change that and allow farmers to bring in extra money.

The accommodations would vary from a cabin to a gypsy caravan or a yurt.  The whole experience would cost between 75 and 100 dollars a night.

About 40 farmers have expressed interest in offering farm-stays.  Several have already started.
