We run a small family farm in Massachusetts, USA, we are not a commercial operation, just a private homestead. We are a sustainable family that loves to learn, create, and craft.
We are approximately a 90-minute drive from Boston. We are close to a train network. We would be a great fit for those interested in learning about farming, horses, and homestead skills.
In addition, we are a family of Martial Artists who teaches classes in a variety of styles. We also enjoy spinning poi, fishing, and kayaking. We can provide kayak use for our local lake.

Help with Eco Projects
We believe strongly in providing our guests with transferable skills that they can use in later life. We can help you with various aspects of farming and sustainability.
We have a variety of ongoing projects. Our projects vary based on the season and weather. We welcome four to five hours a day of help which will typically include weeding, mowing, painting, cleaning animal enclosures, harvesting vegetables, and clearing wooded areas of leaves/branches.
We offer rough boarding in our workshop. There is a pull-out couch and a TV. We also offer unlimited access to hot water, bathroom, shower, laundry etc. We can provide the use of a washing machine and dryer. We provide all meals and snacks. We cook most meals from scratch. You can enjoy farm-raised eggs and meat. We can assist with transport to the train network should you wish to explore the wider area.
