Restore energy to a stressed soul. “We need the tonic of the wilderness” Henry D. Thoreau. Pitch a tent and view a couple of picturesque New England farms in the distance. Have complete privacy, relaxing in the remote countryside by a campfire, while you watch the stars, or maybe sketch the view, photograph it, write a poem about it, or hike around in it! Let your soul relax and feel refreshed when you head back to civilization! If you would like, there are fresh eggs available to buy at the farm, maybe even sausage and bacon! There is a diner in Gilbertville called The Whistle Stop. Rose 32 Bakery also serves food and coffee. You can also go fishing or kayaking on the Ware River and the Quabbin Reservoir. You can cycle into scenic Hardwick Village by just cycling our street to the far end, where, during the Summer, there is a farmers’ market on Sundays, 11am to 1pm. The East Quabbin Land Trust here in Hardwick has beautiful views and birdwatching, and there you can access the Mass Central Rail Trail where you can cross a historic pony truss bridge. Gilbertville has one of the few remaining covered bridges in the state that is still in use! Ware has free concerts, check online for dates and times. Also there is Ruggles Orchard, Hardwick Winery, Robinsons Farm for delicious cheese made right at the farm. Rock House Reservation is a 10 minute drive from here, created by glaciers, inhabited by indigenous tribes, its a blend of geologic and human history (their website says) Janine’s has fast food and ice cream and they have live music on fridays during the Summer. Medicine River Pow wow is held August 25-26th here in Gilbertville. Stone cow brewery is in Barre. So much to do here!! The back acres are overgrown, which is why it is tent only. Be prepared for mosquitoes and ticks and poison ivy. There is a bit of a walk from your car to the back fields, you can go as far out back as you can- it is overgrown with wild roses, and shrubbery. Quite secluded. Very dark at night. The further out to the back of the property the more wildlife there will be, a campfire would deter the coyotes as they are afraid of humans out here. Farm animals free range, you will hear goats, pigs and chickens. This is real rural camping, not for the faint of heart! Quite an experience! Whether you stay at the camp or check out the lovely area, you will have given your self a needed break from the busy world. We are working on improving the camping experience throughout the year!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!!

We had a great time at Rosy Goat Farm. Trisha met us right when we arrived and showed us to the campsite. The trail to the site was a little muddy so we opted to camp in the parking area instead. It worked out great!
