ARRIVING TO WORLDS END
At the center of farm life is Nea, a 14 year old dog who is retired and mostly deaf. She sleeps most of the day under one of the cars in the parking lot. If you bring a car please remember to check underneath before you drive! Giorgio is a 2 year old working border collie. He is cavalier and thinks herding people and chickens is acceptable behavior -- especially when new people visit. If he is a nuisance you can say loudly ‘LIE DOWN’ and he’ll calm down and lie down.
We have a chicken coop with 17 laying hens and one rooster. They are curious creatures and you can shoo them away if they’re giving you unwanted attention.
We are shepherds to 20 Icelandic sheep which provide for us in wool and meat. Our two Maremmas live with them 24/7 and guard them. Pucci is friendly and Blondie is not. We recommend you visit with one of our staff so you can be introduced.
There are two outhouses for general use, which will be made obvious with signs and other markers.
We do not have wifi service here.
We do get good cell phone reception (AT&T especially).
There is a pond on the upper field and any swimming is self regulated. We’ve stocked it with fish, but they probably won’t mind if you join them.
FAUNA: We do have ticks, and suggest that you check yourself before you go to bed or when you get home. It is important to remove ticks (especially deer ticks, hosts to Lyme’s Disease) within 24 hours, so it's good to check every night. If you get a bite, we can help you. This is a helpful website if you want to know more: https://nysipm.cornell.edu/whats-bugging-you/ticks/
FLORA: We are in a poisonous plant world! Poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, and cow parsnip have all been seen on the property, mostly in woods. If you don’t know what these look like, this website is helpful https://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/105282.html, though we’ll do our best to point them out to you.
See you all soon! x Sarah & Zoë
