Mountain View Farm
At the time the Dodge Family opened their doors to guests in 1865 Mountain View was a working farm producing much of its own food. As you visit the farm today and view our orchard, greenhouse and gardens and see our variety of farm animals, you’ll begin to feel a connection to our New Hampshire agricultural past.
Our Working Farm
We are still a small working farm - our focus being on fiber. We create our unique Mountain View Farm Blend yarn from the wool of our Romney, Leicester Longwool, CVM/Romeldale and Suffolk/Border Leicester sheep, and fiber from our Angora goats, llamas, alpacas, and Angora rabbits. Our daily farm chores include collecting eggs from our hens for breakfast and seasonal fruits and vegetables for our chef’s creations.
We also have a fold of Highland cattle who are helping us restore old pasture land. Mountain View Farm is open to resort guests from 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Click the button below to view our daily activity schedule, which includes a full listing of our Farm related activities.
Meet the Farmer
Join our farmer on a short barnyard tour. Help collect eggs from the coop when the hens are laying, then visit the goats inside their pen. Say a "Good Morning" to our other animals as well as learn about their personalities and ways to interact with them. Questions are encouraged!
Year Round • For All Ages Daily • 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
Please Note: Certain Farm activities, such as collecting chicken eggs, are only for guests 5 and older.
Meet the Gardener
Join our gardener twice a week for an activity at the greenhouse gardens. She makes the most of our short growing season here in the North Country; perhaps waiting so long for the warm weather makes our fruits and vegetables seem to taste that much better.
