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.

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.

I surprised my boyfriend with an overnight stay and cheese making class at Flint Hill for his birthday. The owner was very nice and accommodating and we had a wonderful farm experience along with the cheese making class. The accomodations were very nice, clean, and the fireplaces inside the home are a nice touch.

Just got back from a weekend at Flint Hill. We had a wonderful time tending to the animals, milking cows and goats, collecting and washing chicken eggs, and making mozzarella and cheddar cheese! The farm house was warm and cozy, and Kathy was a wonderful host. We awakened to a great breakfast every morning, and then went outside and shared in the farming chores. We learned so much from Kathy, Bruce, Rebecca, Mike, and Theresa who were all farming experts and could answer all of our questions. It was a life-changing experience and we left feeling quite connected to the people and animals at Flint Hill.

We were immediately welcomed to be an active part if the animal farming operation: milking cows and goats, feeding animals, gathering eggs. Plenty of time to relax and participate as we wanted. Staff is really available to educate, answering questions and doing extra things to make the stay fun and educational. I recommend bringing a packed lunch/dinner unless you want to drive out to a nearby town to eat out. Be prepared to get dirty and be outside. Our 4 AnD 1 1/2 year led loved it.

If you want a clean room to sleep in and updated bathroom...this is the place for you. If you want a bug free, web free barn, and beautiful green pastures...this is not the place for you. For heaven's sake this is a REAL farm. We had a blast. My grandson worked 12 hour days doing his chores. Feeding all the animals, milking the goats, hey, he wouldn't even stop to eat dinner, at 7 PM, because he wasn't done milking. Not only did he learn the magic and importance of a farm, he now wants to be a farmer. AND when we got home he asked his suburban parents for chores. It's been two weeks since our two night farm stay and he is still talking about. Did I mention that he is only 4? Well done Nana! Thank you Farmer Kathy and farmhand Bridget for an extraordinary experience.

I stayed in the RV during a recent visit to PA. The farm is gorgeous and peaceful and filled with animals of every kind. Everyone is very friendly and Kathy, the hostess, went WAY out of her way to ensure that I had a good experience. The breakfasts are phenomenal. Very unique experience, good value, and I will be back soon!
