Farmstay offers individuals or families the opportunity to experience "farmer for a day" or to find that place of peace and renewal for body, mind and spirit. Built circa 1850, the farmhouse maintains it original charm with comfort upgrades. We have kept our beautiful bankbarn and have sustainalbly managed our natural based pastures and wooded areas and livestock(chickens,horses,cows,goats,sheep,rabbits) and assorted barn cats and working dogs to provide a full scope farmstay experience. For those with pet allergies,please be aware that two cats reside in the farmhouse.

This hands-on farm experience was wonderful for our two granchildren. It gave them the opportunity to learn about milking cows and goats, how butter is made, and gathering and washing eggs. Kathy hosted a wonderful weekend by providing a comfortable stay in a charming farm house, and preparing delicious country breakfasts filled with such homemade yogurt, cheeses,pancakes, and bread. We enjoyed it all and look to return with our other grandchildren.

Staying the Kathleen was an amazing experience! She was very warm and accommodating and such a lovely lady to have conversations with! Her home, which she readily shares with visitors, is extremely cozy, oozing with country charm! Her pets provided us with so much comfort, I wished we could stay for much longer. Overall, it was an unforgettable two days and we have decided that each time we are in the area, we will definitely spend a few days at Flinthill farm. I look forward to signing up for te cheese making class the next time!

We arrived for a weekend on the farm with our little daughter who is 2.5 years old. To us this was an unparalleled opportunity to pet so many different farm animals. Kathy, the owner was warm and welcoming. We highly recommend!

The rooms are wonderful. The bathroom even has a jacuzzi. The breakfast was fabulous. The staff and volunteers obviously love animals and shared their knowledge with children and adults. This experience was almost too good to be true.

Flint Hill Farm is an amazing place. So many things going on! The farmhouse is so interesting with it's long history of being a working farmhouse. Far from being a creaky old house though, it's been renovated with the upmost care so that it's comfortable and clean while keeping its old-time charm. Kathy is a great host. Very cheerful and helpful. The private bedrooms are spacious and beautifully furnished, and the living and dining areas are great spaces to visit with the other guests staying in the house. The fresh eggs, yogurt, and milk fresh from the farm add to the whole experience.

Wonderful family experience! We have 16+ year old children and we all had a great time! Being a part of the daily farm work and experience was fun and educational! If you are looking for a unique vacation this is it! Country breakfast was delicious and offered quite a variety, including gluten free food!

Our farm stay was out of this world! Our four year old loved immersing herself and enjoyed feeding, grooming and helping as much as she could with the animals. Kathy was a terrific host and we learned so much. The only downside was reading online that there would be a hearty breakfast which there was not. The homemade yogurts, cheeses and breads were delicious, yet not what we expected as all that would be available for breakfast. Perhaps we misread.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Flint Hill Farm in March. Just simply loved the fact that we could roam about the farm and participate in farm activities such as collecting eggs (which we ate for breakfast, yummy), making cheese and watching the births of baby goats. Great educational value for kids and a fun time all around. Especially playing with the baby goats (for hours!) was a highlight for our little one! Rooms were perfectly clean, of course on the farm you have to expect to get dirty, that's half the fun! Breakfast was plentiful and tasty, with most of the food homemade on the farm (breads, yogurt, cheese, eggs, milk...). Overall, the stay exceeded our expectations, left us refreshed and with a lot of memories.

With an eye to getting a few animals for our small starter farm, I booked the Farm Stay to get a first hand experience of what work would be entailed. The effort that goes into caring for their well-tended and friendly animals gave me more knowledge than any book or seminar could have. First off, the room was lovely, warm, and so comfortable that it took me mere moments to fall asleep after my busy day. Breakfast was homey around the large farm table with good company and so rewarding, knowing that we had gathered the eggs and watched the milking. EVERYONE was involved in our stay. Rebecca took us to feed the horses, cows, ducks, pig and calves, sharing practical information on their care, feeding, temperment, and clearly loving all of them. Later she showed us the cheese making process. Bens' knowledge of chickens and devotion to his charges was everything we needed to give us an idea of how to start up our own flock. Rebecca Too spent hours on everything we would need to know for a goat operation and gave us much to think about as opposed to getting a cow for milk and cheese. Kathy was up before the sun to tend to her chickens, gather eggs, pour milk for breakfast and have coffee ready for her guests. The conversation was friendly and informative and I came away with a real respect for milking cows - they are much bigger in person than I thought. There were more people than I can name that took the time to take us around and patiently share their expertise and experiences in tending and caring for farm animals than I can name, but they made our weekend just incredible. If you want a REAL education on what it takes to put food on the table with the warmest and friendliest group of people I've ever met, this is it.
