Work on the Homestead

 

Learn what it takes to work on a homestead.  There are always projects in construction and routine work to be done.  Whether its gathering eggs, feeding the chickens, weeding in the garden, plowing, maintaining the blueberries and raspberries, or constructing the new greenhouse, there is always something you may be interested in doing.  Learn skills you may have always wanted to learn i.e. growing plants from seed, transplanting, starting a garden, raising chickens, etc.  Contact 6 Ponds to learn what projects are currently in progress and let us know what you want to learn.  6pondsfarm@gmail.com

 

Feed the Chickens, Quail, Donkey, and Goats

 

The animals are ALWAYS hungry and they would like nothing better than to have a tasty treat any time of day.

 

Light A Fire

 

There's nothing like a warm fire under the stars at the 6 Ponds fire pit.  Roast marshmallows, hot dogs, or cook a meal over the spit, but you will enjoy an evening by the fire.  There are also horseshoe pits and a swing at the fire pit.

 

Hot Tub


Spend a cold night in the hot tub if you are staying in the treehouse and warm up as you watch the stars. 
 

Take A Dip in the Salt Water Pool

 

If it's summer, the salt water pool is a great way to cool off and have some playful fun. (Available only to guesthouse rentals)
