    sheer wonder of food growing preparation and consumption farms invariably offer an aesthetic reward that urbanites can drink in like cool tea MaryJane s farm is in a particularly luscious site held fast in a small vale at the base of pine studded Paradise Ridge flanked by twin sentinel old growth ponderosa pines that peer out over the blissful rolling hills of the Palouse After dinner I retire to my quiet quarters The cottages are single room affairs built of reclaimed wood featuring painted wood floors skylights throw rugs of tied fabric a propane light an old dresser and bedside picture windows that overlook a shrub rose thicket As dusk yields to starlight overhead I drift off to the murmur of mourning doves in the pines In such a glorious place you can learn a lot simply by sitting on your cottage deck and absorbing the rhythms of country life Daylight wakes you and jays clatter in the pines while you have your coffee Midmorning is best for hard physical effort In the afternoon the heat stills the farms Then in the evening the last rush of light brings a final flurry of activity As evening s indigo curls down from the ridge it s tempting to wander into philosophical time warps but let s just keep things simple My idea of agritourism is that people come and visit and eat a lot of good stuff All I want to do says MaryJane is encourage people to add truly fresh food to their daily lives Not to mention starry nights pine scented breaths and the realization that the world is far gentler than we sometimes think See www maryjanesfarm org About paydirt for more information on extended farm stays and www maryjanesfarm org tour for more information on day tours The Simple Life Farms are evocative places that fuel the imagination even for those who live on them At Kelowna Land Orchard a third generation farm in British Columbia s Okanagan Valley owner Richard Bullock was contemplating an old tractor one day seven years ago when an idea struck Why not hook up a trailer to the tractor and invite people to tour the orchards for a small fee I just wanted to see if anyone would come Bullock says The response astounded him Hundreds of area residents and visitors happily paid a few dollars each to ride around the 180 acres of apple pear and peach orchard while perched atop straw bales listening to Bullock talk about the business of fruit production Today that old tractor sports a spiffy coat of bright yellow paint as do the two hay wagons that trundle behind it Bullock explains to guests the differences between the orchard s dozen or so main apple varieties from the new Ambrosia to the tried and true tart mainstay Granny Smith He also dispenses advice on how to tell whether the fruit is ripe enough to pick Look at the depth of the color Smell the apple
