  • Description


    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.
