Places to see near Rosy Goat Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Came for a night and fell in love! Good flat land for a tent, as well as convenient parking. There were all types of farm animals, and we woke up to find baby pigs playing in an area close to where we slept! Roaming chickens keep ticks at bay, which was a huge plus! Trisha talked to us about her animals, new baby chicks and all! Would love to have stayed another night. Wear boots if you want to hike around, and get lost on the property.
This space is so well thought out and was a complete pleasure to stay at. You really are tucked away back in their back field, but it is all very well maintained, with little spots cleared out for fire pits, shaded picnics, flat areas for tents, etc. The views are just spectacular as well. Would definitely go back!
Trisha's farm is so pleasant. You have great views over her fields to the mountains. She has free range chickens and goats that were pretty funny to have around. The trails are all extremely well kept. Nice private section for tent, with fire pit and shaded picnic table. Would definitely go back here. A great stay!
The hosts were so friendly as they greeted us and helped us get situated then let us enjoy our time of solitude. We felt surrounded by nature and by some of the animals on the farm which was such a cool way to disconnect from city bustle. If you want to feel close to nature and ducks and goats and the fenced of pigs then come! They gave us plenty of wood for a fire at night and were delightful as we said our goodbyes.
My college buddies and I had a great time at the farm. Trisha and her husband were delightful hosts and immediately responsive to any questions we had. The goats, ducks, bunnies and pigs we're all very entertaining. The new outhouse was also a plus. It was a real, private respite from the suburban/ urban life and the view of the stars at night was also wonderful. Give it a shot!
We just returned from a delightful getaway to Rosy Goat Farm. Bill and Trisha are excellent hosts and take the time to explain all the projects going on at their farm. They have a diverse assortment of animals all living happily there including goats, pigs, chickens and ducks and are pursuing heritage breeds, which are resilient and healthy. The spot is very private, in a corner of the property deep into meadows which features a diversity of wildlife thanks to their use of organic, low synthetic chemical techniques. For example, their pigs are good at clearing the underbrush while chickens do the fine tuning afterwards. We fell asleep with the soothing buzz of hummingbirds, and light trails of fireflies. Then a gentle rain came in about half way through the night and with an old growth grove of walnut trees above us kept the air nice and cool. The next day we found breakfast at a local bakery, Rose32Bread, which has one of the top pastry chefs in the country! The farm is an easy drive for anyone south of Boston as it avoids having to go through the city. We’ll be back.
Trisha met us for a quick tour when we arrived, showed us several options for campsites, told us to let her know if we needed anything, and was super nice overall! Her location is really great, very secluded yet not far from civilization. We chose a campsite near where they kept their pigs; they also have goats, ducks, dogs and chickens, all of whom were adorable, friendly and curious about random humans in their backyard 😊 We spotted chipmunks, young rabbits, lots of birds and quite a few hawks (maybe even a golden eagle?) as well. We left for supplies/to explore a couple times, Wal-Mart was pretty close, and there are a ton of parks and hiking trails in the area to explore. Other than some rain and an unfortunate tent leak the second night, this was just the type of trip we had been hoping for! Thank you Trisha, we love Rosy Goat Farm and can't wait for a chance to come back!!
