Our slice of paradise consists of 225 acres of forested land nestled in the foothills of the Catskills near Albany. We are a homestead and developing Eco village devoted to the principles of organic farming and self reliance. Modern agriculture and big business are unsustainable, destroying farmland at a accelerating pace. It is important for us to teach the next generation, there is a alternative. We produce much of our own food. It is a great place to forage many types of wild mushrooms, and are willing to teach those interested. We milk our own cow, also making cheese and butter. We own a sawmill, and have many natural building projects started. We have friendly goats, chickens, ducks, white peacocks, donkeys and horses the children can pet and feed. A beautiful koi pond with a waterfall is available for the guests to feed fish. With hundreds of acres of forest to choose from, you will be able to pick that "perfect" campsite. If you do not like the site you booked, contact the host and other accommodations will be found. Miles of hiking trails are available for your enjoyment. Fresh vegetables, eggs and wild mushrooms are seasonally available for purchase. For a donation, a garden fresh farm to table meal will be served. Please let host know at least two hours in advance if you plan on eating with us. There are many waterfalls and swimming spots within a short drive. For the truly adventurous, reservations for guided tours into the Clarksville cave are available at reasonable rates. Here you will find one of the largest and most visited wild caves in the North East. With nearly a mile of underground passages, It is an experience like no other!
