Owner and Chief Bean Counter, Breakwind Farm
Hey, I'm Patti!
Hopkinton, New Hampshire, United States · Member since July 2012

My Husband and I run a small organic garden and sell our vegetables at a stand outside our house and at local farmers markets. We are also the Owner and Chief Bean Counter of Breakwind Farm's FARTOOTEMPTING Organic Baked Beans which we sell at markets and events throughout the region.

We purchased our 6 acre 1790 farmhouse 3 years ago and have been slowly renovating the house and working on the gardens. We added solar electric and hot water this summer in an ongoing effort to become self sustaining in the next few years. We both love to travel, especially if we can ski and snowboard, but most of our free time is spent working in the gardens and renovating. Some of the bedrooms upstairs need updating. They are all clean and cozy, but the wallpaper is peeling in spots and it does show its age, so it is rustic but quite quaint.

During the summer months we use one of our 3 spare bedroom to host helpers from all over the world through sites like Workaway, Helpx and WWOOF. Our helpers lend a hand with our gardens, farmstand and markets in exchange for room and board. We very much enjoy conversing with them and learning about others cultures and lifestyles.

We look forward to welcoming our Airbnb guests and sharing all that Breakwind Farm has to offer!

*small disclaimer: In the winter we vendor at farmers markets on the weekends. In the morning we may be getting our vehicles loaded with supplies from the market. After the markets we use the kitchen (approx 1 hour) to clean up, and we then store the supplies in the dining room for the following day. If you need to use either the kitchen or dining room during those times, just let us know. We will happily work around your schedule!
