Come Experience Life on a Small Working Farm and Enjoy Cozy Comfort at a Farm Stay in Beautiful Skagit County, Washington.
Our 30-acre farm is home to a herd of heritage Irish Dexter cattle (the smallest breed of cattle) and Shetland sheep (also a small breed). A very social pot-bellied pig, chickens, miniature donkeys, barn cats, and our collie keep life at the farm active and fun. Meet our animals, help with feeding and farm chores, collect eggs, brush the donkeys, or just relax in the peaceful country setting.
Our Farm House was built at the turn of the century and has been completely remodeled to offer comfort as well as all the modern conveniences you might desire. The 3-bedroom, 1-bath Farm House will comfortably sleep 6-8 guests: A master bedroom with a queen-size bed, a second guest bedroom with a double 4-poster bed, a third guest bedroom with a daybed and pop-up trundle, and a queen sofa bed in the living room.
The newly-remodeled bathroom has a full-size tub with shower, pedestal sink, and toilet. Crisp white towels are provided for farm stay guests.
The kitchen is fully equipped so that you can prepare your own meals—there are two ovens, electric stove top, full-size refrigerator, microwave oven, dishwasher, numerous small electrical appliances (including a coffee maker, toaster, and blender), washer and dryer. Dishes, glassware, utensils, and cookware are all provided.
Our Farm Stay is located in Sedro-Woolley, in beautiful Skagit County, Washington, about half-way between Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Retired from white-collar professional careers, Terry has returned to his roots in Skagit County and to farming. Jean is learning to be a farmer in the only way possible: by just doing it.
Our animals--the cows, sheep, and pig--are friendly and social and are used to being around people. Many can be hand-fed treats and enjoy scratches.
We welcome visitors who are interested in learning about farm life. We delight in introducing children to farm animals and the wide-open space of our country setting.
Why the Owner Chose Sedro-Woolley: The farm is nestled in a lovely valley with hills on both sides. The setting is peaceful and serene. And yet, it is only about 20 minutes from I-5, the major north-south freeway in Washington State.
The farm is located in a rich farming county where Farmer's Markets and farm stands abound. U-pick opportunities are plentiful in the Summer and Fall.
Numerous recreational activities are near by: Boating, fishing, and rafting on the Skagit River; golfing; hiking; mountain and road biking; horseback riding; skiing and snowboarding (at Mount Baker, 1.5 hours away); skateboarding.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Wake up slowly and wander out to watch the farm animals go through their morning routines. Help with morning or evening feedings (if you choose to do so). Learn that watching cows eat is an amazingly soothing experience.
Wander through the field or down the road, catching glimpses of small farm life at every farm.
Appreciate a slower pace of life, the smell of freshly-mown grass, and a dazzling display of stars on clear nights.
Local and regional major activities abound:
Woodfest in Sedro-Woolley (March)
Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon (April)
Loggerodeo in Sedro-Woolley (July)
Festival of Family Farms (throughout the county in October)
