Our 106 acre working organic farm is secluded and includes streams, fields, woods, a pond, acres of vegetable and flower gardens, and pastures for our livestock. It is home to pigs, cows, horses, goats, sheep, dogs, and our family of six. Make yourself at home and enjoy the treasures of the farm and our amazing surrounding areas! Wintertime offers the potential of snow and all the joy it brings. Plenty of places to sled, cross-country ski and snowshoe.

We had the best time at Backbone! The cabin was so cozy, clean, and comfortable. The hosts, their kids, and even all the pets were so welcoming and kind, taking time out to talk to us and give a tour. The farm itself was so serene and picturesque, it was far more fun than I even …
