The vibe at When Pigs Fly Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Pulling off Highway 9, you're greeted to When Pig's Fly Farm, "Eggs...Veggies...Herbs..." and the vision of the neighbor's beautiful thoroughbred farm. The road curves back to picturesque, green lushness. When I fantasize about what MY farm would look, feel, smell like, I envision When Pigs Fly Farm. Surrounded by a rolling landscape of mountains, trees, and lush, well-loved crops and animals. Chris and Tom have maximized every 10 acres with countless chickens, two roosters, seven personality-rich alpacas, two highland cattle, grazing land, a rodent-hungry barn cat (living in the rodent-free barn!), a German Shepherd named Sam, a pond full of a multitude of frogs who will sing you guttural lullabies at dusk, a barn-house covered in solar panels where Martine, their talented land manager lives, an impressive garden that feeds forty CSA members from the community and themselves, and a thoroughly relaxing space next to the pond where visitors camp. Over the past twenty years of ownership, Chris and Tom have hosted music festivals and have upcoming Farm to Table dinner events! The farm is truly magical and not a space you want to leave first thing in the morning. The light pollution is so minimal that the stars seem to explode into view and the milky way is fully visible. I highly recommend visiting and staying on the farm for multiple nights!!
Beautiful farm and welcoming hosts! We were given a tour and fresh vegetables upon arrival. Three campsites are very close together on the pond and in close proximity to the house. With the added benefit of being close to the bathroom and water source. There's one more campsite out in the back field that offers more privacy. It is close to the alpacas and highland cows.
Chris was a lovely hostess. They set us up, left us some delicious produce, and headed out of town themselves for the weekend - meaning that we had the whole place to ourselves! It was quiet and peaceful, with the occasional cow, alpaca, duck, heron, falcon, and frog sightings to keep my daughter well entertained. Sitting outside our tent at night, listening to the owls in the forest and frogs in the pond, and looking at the amazing night sky was the perfect start to our vacation.
We were disadvantaged due to the weather, being wet and cold. It is natural during Thanksgiving time. I would love to visit back again if we have a chance. Kids enjoyed seeing the farm animals close. Their hospitality was excellent. It would be beautiful place with plantations and pond.
