At Greenwood Hill Farm, our goal is to provide "Grandma and Grandpa's farm -- for all the families not fortunate enough to have grandparents who own a farm." We offer a relaxing FarmStay where we open our home to visitors so that they can experience farm life as an escape, entertainment, education, recreation and vacation. We invite you to share our modest home as if you are members of our extended family. You may participate in our daily farm activities which include feeding various farm animals such as chickens, ducks, a goat and horse, and a flock of Finnsheep. We also have a wonderful barn cat, Sophi and our delightful, dog Duke. Pigs will be arriving in August...what fun:) After farm chores you can just kick-back and enjoy "owning" 125 beautiful hill-top acres of fields and woodlands or you can participate in additional farm fun such as gardening and cleaning animal shelters. We also have self-guided activities such as kite flying, nature scavenger hunts, walking paths, and more. Whatever you choose to do here at the farm, we are confident your stay will be enjoyable and memorable. If you do nothing else than just relax and enjoy the peaceful, farm atmosphere we believe your trip here will be worth it. We have many wonderful guests that leave hoping to return. Come get in touch with nature ...it wants to touch you back. Bring your Play Clothes!
Our accommodations, located in our home, include our three guest bedrooms with a shared bath. Our home blends modern convenience with old-fashioned comfort. The main floor is wheelchair accessible throughout. Guest bedrooms are on the main floor. Two have queen beds, the third has a single bed.
Our farm includes a total of 125 acres. About 40 acres are fields (farmed organically for hay and grain that supply a local organic dairy), about 50 acres are forest (some human-managed for future generations, some "old grove", managed by a higher authority), and about 20 acres are managed specifically as wildlife habitat (turkey, grouse, blue birds, deer, fox, etc.). The last 15 acres serves a multitude of functions and includes a large, grassy area suitable for all sorts of games. Our pond covers about 1/4 acre and teams with frogs, fish, etc. We have a 60'x40' vegetable garden (enough for the house, for canning and a bit for market), a 36' round herb garden (containing every culinary herb that we can find seeds for) and flower gardens of every description. In the evening, you can stargaze (there is no "light pollution" here, so the sky is amazingly clear on many nights) or gather in "Stonehenge" (woodland fire-pit area) to, talk, sing, listen to music and make S'Mores.Please visit our website for more information, and pictures.
