What It Takes To Open A B&B In Your Farmstead
Just picture the scene. You are cooking breakfast in the kitchen – warm and light pancakes made with fresh eggs and milk. Somewhere in the house, you can hear someone opening a window. A shower is running in the distance, and when you strain yourself, you can even make up the sound of a voice singing the latest Beyoncé’s hit. You didn’t get to have a lie-in, unfortunately: You’ve been awake for almost two hours even though it’s barely past 8 AM. You got up early to pick the last berries of the season in the garden. You placed them in a bowl on the wooden kitchen table. They look sweet and juicy like hundreds of candies from Mother Nature. Next to them, there’s another bowl of yogurt, which you’ve made the evening before; its thick and shiny surface reflects the sunlight. You’ve also remembered to put out a few jars of homemade jams – strawberry, peach and figs – and a little pot of honey from a local beekeeper. Now, you just need to wait for the bread to finish baking in the oven, and you’re ready to welcome your guests. Does it sound compelling?
