Rural Respite

MassGrown Map Bored with Boston? Cooling on Cape Cod? The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources hopes to lure locals and visitors off the beaten path with its colorful map of "agri-tourism" destinations. From farm B&Bs and wineries to hayrides and corn mazes, there's a sample of rural life--and locally grown food--for every taste. Those with heartier appetites for the country can contact groups like Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, which matches host farms with volunteers for longer stays.
