We moved from Brooklyn NY shortly after our daughter was born to pursue our dream of starting a small organic sustainable farm. We fell in love with this land with its varied features, lush forest, rambling streams, magical pond and endless mountains and valleys as soon as we saw it and we love sharing it’s beauty with our guests! We also love sharing our horse powered farm and introducing folks to our happy, friendly animals on our farm tours!
