Planning on going in July. I have a question? You mentioned that Staff checked on you to see if you wanted to go into to town? Is this something that they do regularly? I wasn't sure if we would be stuck at the farm with no means to get into town for purchases. Also, What is the weather like in the summer? Is there air conditioning at the farm? Is the weather tolerable? I appreciate any responses. It sounds so wonderful to be there.
