... and we've stayed on a few in the US! Set in part of the beautiful rainforest area of Oregon we arrived at this farm to be greeted by a very warm welcome which was just the beginning . Scottie and Greg were very hospitable. The accommodation was seriously comfortable. We were
able after a few great lessons to bottle feed the new born lambs and round up the sheep ,horses ,chickens and even Paco the donkey - it wasn't essential to do this while there but was a true pleasure and a privilege to be able to do so. Even if this isn't you're thing there was plenty to do whether just relaxing or exploring the many and diverse trails on the property we would very happily recommend this experience to all!
