Summary

4 Star AccreditationExperience life on the farm with your family and friends! Our 34 acre family farm is sized and planned with people in mind, both those who live here and those who visit.

We plant fruit, vegetables, and crops to create a beautiful landscape as well as feed us delicious food throughout the growing season. Our livestock are diverse, friendly, and each plays a role on the land.

The Gathering Barn, a century-old barn, serves as a beautiful and rustic place to eat, meet, and play. When you visit The Country Experience you are welcome to join us in any/all farm activities, just relax a hammock on our rolling hills, or visit local attractions.

--Amenities: Stay in one of our four cozy cabins that easily accommodate single families or larger groups. We will configure the beds (bunk beds, singles, king mattress) to your needs! Each cabin has A/C, heat, electricity, linens, towels, ceiling fans, and screen doors and windows. Modern full bathrooms, showers and private changing rooms are located in the Gathering Barn, only a short and well-lit walk from your cabin.

--Farm Breakfasts: Join us for for a family-style breakfast each morning! Our full farm breakfast includes offers an assortment of farm fresh eggs, local meats, baked sweet breads, toast with homemade jams, yogurt, cereals, fruit-- and of course coffee, tea, and juice!

--Dinner Experience: Grill-Out dinner includes a selection of local meats, farm fresh salads, tasty sides, and homemade dessert. For your Farm Pizza Night, craft your own pizza with local meats, cheeses, fresh vegetables and herbs, and our farm’s best tomato sauce. Gather around our wood-fired brick oven to watch your pizza bubble and crisp in less than a minute. Campfire and s’mores to follow dinner!

Or -- relax in our row of shaded hammocks, read a book by the pond, stargaze on the wide lawn, share stories around the campfire, take a walk around the 1-mile paved path, practice yoga with the little goats. --Animals: We are currently home to a small herd of Dexter Cows, Boer Goats, Nubian Goats, New Zealand Rabbits, two flocks of laying hens, several Berkshire and Heritage Pigs, three Miniature Pot-Bellied Pigs, and several Dorset and Shetland Sheep. Of course, Sammy, our farm dog, and the two barn cats named Batgirl and Wolfie.
