Farmstayus.com connects travellers with farm stays, ranch stays and vacation wineries. The system includes a fully managable database of farms, ranches and wineries which powers the robust searching and map features. This project started as as an idea and has developed into a revenue generating online business that has been featured in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
"I have had a least 6-7 calls or e-mails that said they found me on Farmstayus.com or by typing in the words farm stay. 4 of them have booked....Thanks so much for your help."

Farmstayus.com allows website users to search the large farm database based on hundreds of different parameters including location, cost and available amenities.
The search is built on Knockout.js to enable a extrememly responsive experience. BBQ.js was used to allow the back button and permalinking to work with the dynamic search. jQuery and jQuery UI we used as well for the dialog selections and general DOM manipulation.
The interactive map powered by Google Maps displays every farm, ranch and winery in the database as a clickable custom map pin. Users can pan and zoom to find farm exact locations and view more information by clicking the pin.
