Overnight Farmstays

Enjoy a country vacation on our 112-acre family farm in the heart of the Susquhanna River Valley. Authentic farm activities are yours to watch or participate in. With hundreds of sheep, dozens of pigs, chickens, turkeys, working border collies, horses, and honeybees, there's always something interesting going on here. Your visit is private and personal, because we host only one overnight group at a time. Open seasonally mid-April to mid-November.

Sheep are a big deal around here: moving ‘em, checking ‘em, weighing ‘em, sorting ‘em, etc. well you get the picture. The Border Collie is essential.

RATES
We believe in keeping things simple. The rate is $135 per night, regardless of weekday vs weekend, length of stay, college graduations, etc. This does not include county and state taxes, which will be 9% of the total ($11.25). Maximum occupancy is 6 people, but we feel that 6 adults is a bit crowded. A group of 6 composed of children and adults is most comfortable.
