Valley Springs Farm offers the tranquility of rural life with easy access to recreational, cultural and culinary activities.
Innkeepers Don and Dorothy Harms operate a working dairy and beef farm which offers the sights and sounds of the country – from sandhill cranes returning in the spring to newborn red angus calves frolicking in the pasture with their mommas.
The 255 acre farm is a mix of woodlands, pastures, rolling cropland, and wetlands supporting abundant wildlife and our grazing cattle. The spring-fed pond is a welcome stop for migrating geese and birds. Valley Springs Farm has been operated by the Harms family for over 135 years with Don as the 4th generation.
Are you curious about a farmer’s job producing milk and meat for the public? – “Farmer Don” is willing to share his lifetime of farming experience with you. Farm tours are available with advance reservation. On our tour, you can feed a calf, see what cows eat, how they are milked, or get your picture taken with one of our antique John Deere tractors.
You can stroll through the gardens enjoying flowers, berries, vegetables and fresh fruits in season. Spend some time picking plump raspberries or crisp apples. If you are an early riser, head outside to relax on the front porch and watch the ducks on the pond as you sip a cup of gourmet coffee. Explore nature up close and personal on the 2/3 mile hiking trail winding through woods and fields on our property. You can also choose to sit by the campfire at night and spend an evening stargazing with a loved one.
