All the animals and gardens and fruit trees and berries and fish are doing great. So many eggs. My routine hasn’t changed and now folks are welcome.

Go here to see what this farm is all about:
This is a working subsistence mountain side farm. A great place to stay in the mountains and a destination as well. Lots to do right here. I stay in a small cabin by the barn close to the animals I care for. And I do all other daily farm related chores. If you want, you can share the farm activities with me. Help harvest fresh eggs and care for the animals. Lots of other activities here like fishing, outdoor cooking, foraging, hiking, shooting and more. Rates vary according to how many in your party and the time of year and are very negotiable. Don’t hesitate to inquire. Last minute bookings are really appreciated.

We are located on 13 acres of beautiful rolling mountain property with so much to do you’ll spend most of your time right here. It’s very accommodating having the main quarters all on one floor. Drive into the two-car garage and go right into the kitchen. There are ponds, gardens, creeks, springs and mountain hiking trails to explore. The ‘Farm Stay’ experience has yard birds, fish and egg laying chickens and sometimes a pig or 2. You’re welcome to enjoy the eggs and sample whatever is in season from the fruit trees, grape vines and gardens.
