ABC acres is a Permaculture Farmstead in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana - as our guest, join us in the adventures of growing and raising healthier food choices while regenerating the world around us.
Family owned/operated and established in the fall of 2012, ABC acres focuses on sustainable food production, healthy living systems, and regenerative ecological design. Our cattle, chickens, goats, turkeys, and pigs are out on open pasture, eating, resting, and living the way nature intended. Much like our livestock family, our vegetables, herbs, fruits, and nuts are grown with the same approach. It’s a mixture of annuals and perennials intertwined with pollinator species, companion plantings, and multi-structured food forests. It’s nature’s way…..a way of reducing disease, increasing harvest, and ensuring diversity for an overall healthy farm. In fact, doing things that mirror natural ecosystems is the focus of our operations.
ABC acres presently offers two newly-built, and well-appointed homes for Farm Stays and Vacation Rental - the Guest House and the Gate House.
The Guest House and the Gate House were constructed with health and wellness in mind for the resident - built with no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) both inside and out, non-toxic spray foam insulation, HEPA filtration for high quality interior air all season long, and ‘Alive Water’ systems to reinvigorate and reenergize water at all points of use…..these speaking to the
underlying theme of healthy environments which pervades the farmstead.
The Guest House was built in 2014. Offering four dedicated bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms, comfortable living/dining space, and well-equipped kitchen, the Guest House interior sits at about 1800 sqft. On the exterior, a covered deck along with outdoor dining set and lounge furniture for your relaxation and viewing pleasure. Seasonal strawberry patches situated off the North side, as well as a selection of culinary herbs for use in the kitchen, are all yours to enjoy.
The Guest House is situated in the heart of the farm. Positioned alongside the seasonal waterway (April to October), the current implement shed, and in close proximity to the goat barn, livestock paddocks, and owner’s residence, the Guest House pays witness to many daily activities of the farm.
The Gate House, ABC acres’ newest farm structure (built Summer of 2015), offers two dedicated bedrooms, two full bathrooms, comfortable living/dining spaces, and a spacious, well-equipped kitchen - an interior of about 1200 sqft, plus single-car garage.
As for the exterior, the Gate House offers a bit of separation/privacy despite being just a moment’s walk to the action of the farm. An East-facing front porch if for your coffee and sunrise, a patio on the North side is situated alongside the newly planted fruit orchard, and on the South side, a recently added pergola provides shade if for taking in the sweeping Valley views and/or an outdoor celebration….complet
