Fox Haven is an organic farm, retreat center, wildlife sanctuary, and learning center. We are located in the beautiful foothills of Maryland, an hour outside of Washington D.C.. We are about 15 minutes west of Frederick and 20 minutes from Harper's Ferry, WV. We have trails on the farm and a lovely gravel country road to walk/bike on. We are very close to the Appalachian Trail and the Potomac River.
We teach classes on a variety of subjects: Permaculture, Herbs (medicinal and culinary), Tree Grafting/Orchard maintenance, Composting, Wild Food Foraging, Fermentation, Mushrooms 101, Using Pigs, Ducks, and Chickens to manage growing areas and Food Forests, Mindful Meditation, Yoga, Nature Meditation, and Mindful Eating to name a few. People can bring their own speakers/teachers and/or we can teach a class to enhance your stay. You are welcome to help us with farm chores if it works into the farm schedule. We do give farm tours.
Our 3 farm houses have a combined 13 bedrooms that can sleep between 31-38 people in beds and 2-4 more on sleeper sofas. We have ample room for tents. We have an outdoor 4 person sauna and a ping pong table, lots of space to run and play games, and each house has a collection of books and games, and all linens/towels provided. Each kitchen is fully equipped. We will help with food purchasing and prep, lining up caterers if needed for an additional fee.
We have a Dairy Parlor meeting space that seats 85 in rows, is used for yoga and classes, speakers, and music events. We have a Big Red Barn that is also used for music and storytelling events as well as our own classes.
You are bound to find an adventure as well as some deep relaxation at Fox Haven.
