The rich history of Burnhead Grazings is enveloped in a love for God's creation. Dr. Gib and Emmy Lou McLaughlin purchased Burnhead, which is Gaelic for the head of the stream, from William H. Stevens. The once pasture for Hilltop Dairy's cows became a pasture for sheep. Gib and Emmy had been in search of land for years after getting their first border collie and falling in love with the Shepherd lifestyle. Gib trained dozens of border collies to work the sheep and did hundreds of demonstrations highlighting the herding abilities of the collie across the country. Their love for Scotland and the border collie took them Scotland on many occasions. Burnhead Grazings is a snapshot of Scotland, "in bye" or close to, the beautiful college town of Indiana, PA. Less than two miles from two hotels, three miles from downtown, and within minutes from Amish country, it is amazing that this respite still exists so close to civilization. Gib and Emmy's daughter, Moire McLaughlin Bridges and her husband Randy have endeavored to bring the sheep back to Burnhead Grazings and to continue the family tradition as well as to share in the experience. You can listen to an interview on The Christian Witness Program on this page for some history about Moire and Randy in Tennessee where they were residing before coming to Indiana. They are producing lamb, wool for spinning and felting, and hay and are opening up the farm for small events such as weddings or family reunions. Moire is also the author and illustrator of a children's book available for sale on iBooks called Sissy & The King. In November of 2014, with the help of Hilltop Baptist Church and many others, they began hosting an event, LIFE Nativity, the weekend before Thanksgiving, which benefits Life-Way Pregnancy Center. Moire is also a fine artist and gives classes on wool felting. Ask about signing up for a class or book a private felting party.

Spring House Retreat
Absolutely Perfect
We are newlyweds! We came here for a minimoon after our wedding this weekend and it honestly could not have been more perfect. Moire, Randy and Emmy were incredible hosts, Emmy showed us all of the animals and how she trains them! The donkeys and cats would greet us in the morning, we got to meet the miniature show horses as well as the full size horses! The property is absolutely gorgeous and the spring house is cozy, very spacious and warm. We loved the big swing on the oak tree by the pond, taking in the fall foliage on a walk by the stream, we LOVED hanging out with the donkeys and horses and talking to Randy and Moire! Moire showed us the spring under the house that provides all of our water, she also showed us her beautiful felting, and was just so generous and kind! We could not recommend this beautiful place enough. Wonderful hosts, the land is magnificent and the life on the farm is just magical. It was absolutely perfect <3

Pond Side Tent Site
A perfectly serene getaway
Words can’t express the serenity, welcoming hosts and gorgeous property at Burnhead Grazing. Moire is a wonderful lady and such a gracious host. The farm grounds are impeccable, the pond site is gorgeous (don’t miss the sunset and sunrise!) and every amenity you could need is available. I can’t wait to return to stay at the stream tent site and the spring house!! I highly recommend a getaway with Moire at Burnhead Grazings !

This was our second trip to Moire's campsite with our three kids. We thoroughly enjoy ourselves every time we stay! This is a perfect place to camp. Having access to the bathroom in the house makes it easy with our little ones. Excellent hosts and a beautiful setting.
