What our Guests are saying about us

I am a repeat visitor to Heritage Hollow Farm because of the true refuge it offers me from my otherwise busy life. There is so much to learn and explore on this unique farm. Whether it is walking in the wildflower meadow, reading on the hammock or interacting with the animals, it is an experience that will stay with you for a long time. The animals are constant companions, Scout the farm dog, the heritage chickens, the sheep and their lambs all offer hours of distraction. My grandchildren love to help Aby with the daily farm chores including gathering fresh eggs for morning breakfast. The farmhouse is warm and inviting with a well appointed kitchen perfect for cooking all our meals and then sitting down at a huge farm table to watch the different bird species stop by the multiple bird feeders right outside the window. Aby is an exceptional host and is happy to share her rich, naturalist philosophy with everyone. She provides a unique experience for her guests. This is truly a great opportunity for all ages and a very special place.

We had a great weekend on Aby's farm. Aby was a wonderful host. My small kids had a great time getting to know the horses, sheep, bunny, cats, dog, and especially the chickens. We loved being able to get fresh eggs each morning, and my kids would always check for new ones. I taught my son how to cast a fishing pole at the pond, and we enjoyed trail walks. There is so much to do for all ages. Perfect for a quick getaway and let the kids stretch their legs.

Heritage Hollow is a truly magical places that heals pieces of you, you didn't even realize were broken. Aby is the sweetest, kindest, most accomodating host. There is so much to do and see at the farm. Seeing the horses trotting in the sunrise and sunset, the adorable sheep's being funny little fluffs of sunshine, and the chickens who make the breakfast around. Whether you're going with kids or for an adult friend weekend, you cannot go wrong with the magic and beauty of Heritage Hollow. I cannot recommend Heritage enough!

100% recommend to everyone. Totally customizable experience from quiet seclusion to active farming activities with a wonderful host. Accommodations are great as depicted while the landscape/farm/property is even better than expected. Our kids 11-14 had a wonderful experience helping Aby with the animals in the evening and even opted to wake up at 6:45 to help with morning chores!!
