We are a small family dairy goat farm, in a very rural agricultural community of New England at the foot of the Berkshire’s. Our over two hundred year old rustic farmhouse is located on 16+acres of meadows and woods, surrounded by thousands of acres of conservation land, trails, and our own bubbling brook for cooling off in the summer. It is a truly bucolic, beautiful and magical environ and budding homestead.
White water river rafting and many other local tourists sights, hiking, cross country skiing 3 minutes from our farm, downhill skiing and a ski lodge and resort, Berkshireast is 7 minuets away
