Family “farm stays” allow families to experience life “on the farm” together one day at a time.

The recognition of Agro-tourism within the broader definition of PA agriculture has encouraged farms to open their doors to the public. In a effort to bridge the gap between the urban and suburban community and farming community, the state of Pennsylvania has provided a way for farmers to share their culture on a more personal level. This year is the fourth year Flint Hill Farm Ag is offering overnight farm stays for 1 to 4 individuals in the farm house. Since this is an old farm house, we presently offer two cozy bedrooms and a common guest bathroom. Different options are available to accommodate the needs of larger families.

Towels and soap are provided. Personal items (shampoo, etc.) are not.

While here, visiting “farmers” collect their own eggs for breakfast, help milk the cows and goats, assist with the feeding and handling of the horses, chickens, pigs and goats to their level of comfort. Enjoy a farm breakfast created from the eggs collected that morning, seasonal fruits from the garden and woods, honey from our hives on fresh bread makes a special treat. Participation with the farm’s AM or PM activities gives our visitors hands on experience with “farm life”. Each season is unique and rich with opportunity!

  • Don’t smoke except in safe smoking areas. No smoking allowed in and around the farmhouse, outbuildings or barns. Fire is always a concern.

  • Do let us know if you will want to use the kitchen for lunch or dinner preparation. The Farm Stay only allows us to provide one meal. Our guests are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare their meals with the understanding that they will clean up, arrange with us lunch/dinner options in advance for our Marshmallow and Weenie Roast  at the Fire Pit or Picnic Basket.  We provide a full list of “take out” and exceptional dining for each guest or family.

The House*   house_kitchen
The original part of the house and bank barn are beautifully constructed of hand hewn beams. Rocking chairs on the wrap-around porch off the front of the farm house offers a restful place for breakfast or relaxing from spring to fall.  Breakfast with eggs, milk and cheese and muffins from the farm is offered between 8 and 10 AM Saturday and Sunday. Seasonal fruits and herbs added as available.

*Allergy Notice: Please note that there a numerous cats and other livestock living in the barns.  In the farmhouse there are two dogs, Mica and Faith. Their job is to help herd the cows and goats. Most of the day they are outside, but come inside to sleep. There are two cats that are sometimes inside the farm house.  The bedroom doors are kept closed to decrease allergy concerns. Anyone who experiences seasonal or animal allergies are encouraged to pack their appropriate medication for their time with us on the farm.  Our cancellation policy is 48 hr.  Sorry, but we do not have a refund policy for allery related cancellations after arrival.

The Farm
The farm dates back to about 1850. The working farm offers 6 acres of wooded paths, pastures for our sheep, goats, and cows and assorted gardens planted with herbs, flowers and vegetables. A Certified Raw milk dairy provides goat and cow milk for the Flint Hill Farm Educational Center’s sale of both pasteurize and raw milk and pasteurized added-value products of artisan cheese, fresh butter and yogurt. During certain seasons, the Draft horse teams of the Educational Center provide “horse power” to the everyday work of the farm. The farm is a dynamic environment moving in harmony with the changing seasons.

Our Shasta Mobile Home is nestled in next to our 6 acres of woods.   It is an older RV that has been gently used. The family that desires “camping” in a more “gentile way” will enjoy its benefits.  Two twin beds are located at the back of the trailer.  The double bed is located over the cab of the mobile home.  The dining table can also be converted into a child size bed at night if another bed is needed.  It does offer a “cozy” shower.  However, the water is electic heated so it is a quick one!  Breakfast is served at the main farm house; however, the camper affords families on a budget to cook their own meals or dine out as desired.  A full kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, gas stove and oven allow for private meals either in the camper or at the picnic area.  There is also a gas grill for outside cooking situated in the picnic area.

The camper is available for day or weekly rate.  Please call for weekly rates since it changes with the season.
