Please join us on our working, rare-breed family farm in Central Kentucky! We're just 30 minutes north of the Kentucky Horse Park, about halfway between Lexington and Cincinnati, OH (only an hour away).

Bring the children and have some fun, or decompress in our lovely sanctuary. Our name is from the novel Moby Dick. Kokovoko is a tiny island not on any map (true places never are), where the natives were raised with goats nipping at their heels. We feel it fits us pretty well.

Our Swedish Gotland ponies and Lincoln Longwool sheep graze over 150 acres of Kentucky rolling hills and forest. Unspoiled. Organic. Natural. It's a working farm. The ponies ride and drive (and oh yes, they're available for driving lessons – singles or pairs!). The herd began here as just seven, and has now grown to become the largest herd in North America. The Lincoln longwools are amazing too. They grow an inch of wool a month. Handspinners and artists love their wool. It's long, lustrous and sturdy. (And we can teach you to spin it, too!) In the barnyard, several breeds of heritage chickens scurry about. They provide fresh eggs and timely wake-up calls for our guests, who stay above the carriage house where we offer a two-room private suite.

It's not your typical bed and breakfast. Much of the food comes from the farm. The dishes might not match, but the beds are comfy (sheets fresh-air dried!) and the kitchen is stocked. It's conveniently located, but miles from conventional. Learn about where your food comes from. Children welcome, but be forewarned, they may not want to leave.

You'll meet the hens who laid your breakfast eggs, a varying poultry community, and the resident "peas," a breeding pair of peacocks! But it's funny, the kids' favorites are usually the farm dog crew, a motley bunch of very kid-friendly big ole' dogs, who keep watch over the farm and guests, and love to play ball with the kids.
