Our area is loaded with so many fantastic things to see and do. It is a natural wonderland full of woods, streams and rivers that are great for fishing, kayaking, and tubing. There are many beautiful farms and places to take a drive.
It is also a place rich in the arts and artists and funky little towns.
I welcome you bringing a friend or partner. They can sit on our porch and read if they like, take a drive in the country, go for lunch somewhere, go fishing and more.
Here are the towns that are worth exploring:
Shelburne Falls - The Bridge of Flowers and more
Northampton - The big artsy town about 30 minutes from the farm
Amherst - Home to UMass and Amherst College.
Brattleboro, VT - A funky, hip little city just north of us.

Delectable Mountain in Brattleboro - the most beautiful fabric store in the world in my opinion. 25 minutes from our farm
Webs Yarn Store in Northampton - great staff, lovely yarns both full and discounted prices. 35 minutes from our farm.
Northampton Wools - owned by my friend Linda Daniels and on a side street in downtown Northampton. 35 minutes from our farm.
