ABC acres Gate House - Agritourism & Adventure in Montana's Bitterroot Valley.

Located in: Hamilton
(there are two rental homes on the property, please see separate listing for the Guest House - https://www.vrbo.com/897625)

ABC acres is a Permaculture Farmstead in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana - as our guest, join us in the adventures of growing and raising healthier food choices while regenerating the world around us.

Family owned/operated and established in the fall of 2012, ABC acres focuses on sustainable food production, healthy living systems, and regenerative ecological design. Our cattle, chickens, goats, turkeys, and pigs are out on open pasture, eating, resting, and living the way nature intended. Much like our livestock family, our vegetables, herbs, fruits, and nuts are grown with the same approach. It’s a mixture of annuals and perennials intertwined with pollinator species, companion plantings, and multi-structured food forests. It’s nature’s way…..a way of reducing disease, increasing harvest, and ensuring diversity for an overall healthy farm. In fact, doing things that mirror natural ecosystems is the focus of our operations.

The Gate House, ABC acres’ newest farm structure (built Summer of 2015), offers two dedicated bedrooms, two full bathrooms, comfortable living/dining spaces, and a spacious, well-equipped kitchen….an interior of about 1200 sqft, plus an attached single-car garage. The structure was built with no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) both inside and out, and non-toxic spray foam insulation, which speaks to the underlying theme of healthy environments which pervade throughout the farmstead. HEPA filtration provides high quality interior air, and to insure a clean, healthy drinking/bathing experience, all water is routed through an iron filtration system then finally through an ‘Alive Water’ system to reinvigorate & re-energize the water at all points of use.

As for the exterior, the Gate House offers a bit of separation/privacy despite being just a moment’s walk to the heart of the farm. An East-facing front porch if for your coffee and sunrise, a patio on the North side is situated alongside the newly planted fruit orchard, and on the South side a recently added pergola provides shade if for taking in the sweeping Valley views and/or an outdoor celebration….complete with bbq grill, picnic table, and fire pit. These areas are contained within the Gate House’s private, fenced, and dog-friendly yard (home to an all-season/all-weather dog house). Watch as June-bearing strawberries explode, late summer blackberries climb the fence, and fall apples and pears adorn the trees….all fresh/organic edibles for your tasting pleasure.

As a guest of the farm, and from the comfort of your home or whilst strolling about the property, you may witness osprey fishing for trout in the waterway, farm staff running pasture irrigation, elk & deer grazing the pastures at dusk, any number of processes that go into the design and earthwork of a fully-functioning Permaculture system, and much much more. It is these on-farm experiences that give staying at ABC acres its uniqueness and charm.

As you settle into your stay, be sure to take in all the sights, sounds, and activities that ABC acres has to offer. Self-guided walking maps will direct you around the property….take time to read the informational kiosks strategically positioned throughout, enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon rest alongside the Crater Garden recreation & picnic area, spend some time photographing the various livestock, watch the honey bees buzzing amongst the diverse plant selection or, better yet, grab a fishing pole and stroll down to the Bitterroot River to try your hand at hooking dinner! As a guest of the farm, many complementary activities await during your stay….it’s just a matter of how you might wish to spend your time.

Conveniently located just a few miles South of Hamilton, a short walk to the Bitterroot River, and bordered by picturesque farms and public lands, ABC acres provides an idyllic combination of wide-open spaces, wildlife, and outdoor adventure, while also remaining just minutes from the Valley’s small town happenings and city amenities. Be it fishing, hiking, or boating...golfing, skiing, or wine-tasting...grocery stores and dining....or rock climbing and hot air ballooning….whatever you might fancy, ABC acres is within its reach.

Don’t hesitate to contact our Farm Stay Manager with any questions you might have, where/what you can explore, and how to best enjoy the abundance of on- and off-farm activities available. Beyond a place to simply rest your head, ABC acres is here to enhance your visit and help create memories for a lifetime.
