Mountain View Farm


When the Dodge family opened their doors to guests in 1865, Mountain View Grand was a working farm producing much of its own food. As you visit the farm today and view our orchard, greenhouse, gardens, and farm animals, you will begin to feel a connection to our New Hampshire agricultural past.

Working Farm

We are still a working farm, with a focus today on raising fiber producing animals and a variety of herbs and vegetables. Our unique Mountain View Farm Blend yarn is created from the wool of our Romney, Leicester Longwool, Babydoll Southdown, CVM Romeldale, and Suffolk/Border Leicester sheep along with fiber from our angora goats, llamas, alpacas, and angora rabbits.

Our yarn may be purchased at Provisions, in the lobby, or mornings at our fiber studio in the barn.

Mountain View Farm is open to resort guests daily from 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Farm Activities & Workshops

*Workshops are charged to your guest room. Please note the barn does not take cash or credit cards.
