About the Goatherd House

This 100+-year-old Goatherd house is the oldest building on the farm. After its restoration in the late 2000′, its original design and authentic 1900’s craft remains, but for your comfort, we have installed a hot water shower and flushable toilet.  Although this unit has no electricity, its picturesque views and secluded but convenient location at the festival gives Goatherd House that private yet connected feel.
