We sought this sight out, simply to check it out! We drove through beautiful scenic back roads to find it. We kept thinking how stunningly beautiful this drive would be in the summer! Nothing much to see for entertainment. The farm is beautiful. We saw...More

Okay, for some time now I've purchased our eggs at farm stands. You know, the kind where you drive up, drop off your used cartons and pay about $3.00 for a dozen cage-free, farm fresh eggs. But NEVER have I've driven up to paradise and...More

This sheep farm used to be a must-see place in Old Chatham, with buildings for pregnant sheep, milking sheep, and new born lambs, plus thousands of other sheep and their donkey shepherds in the outlying fields. But for at least three years, the 2000-head dairy...More

The sheep have been moved from the main location to somewhere that is not publicized. Not really. anything going on at this location except for a few donkeys and 6 or so sheep. This is really not designed for tourists.

Very fine award winning cheeses. We enjoyed the camembert. Some of my party had never tasted their cheeses before but enjoyed it very much.

Beautiful farm with open barns and ample opportunity to see sheep farming in process. No guided tour or set hours for activities so made the visit a bit random. That said, we purchases a hefty chunk of prize winning Camembert as the "honor" shop and...More

If you are in the area a stop in this working farm is a great time. Products are primarily sheep based milk and cheeses(some have cow's milk also) and are outstanding. With consideration to the environment this farm grows the winter feed for the animals...More

It was awful. The sheep are kept closely penned. The babies away from their mommas. The "store" consisted of a refrigerator with a slot for money and a supposed "camera" for watching for thievery. No on there on a Saturday afternoon to welcome or show...More
