At 1Tribe, you’ll enjoy unique and serene lodging accommodations seamlessly intertwined with our regenerative farm. From our stone Summit manor to our cabins nestled on the hillside of our developing permaculture food forest, you’ll wake up among happily grazing cattle and wildlife living their best life.
Come connect with nature, catch up on rest, splash in the river, hike our woods, attend or host a health and wellness retreat, get up close and personal with our animals and food systems, and of course feed yourself the most delicious and nutritious meals available.
1Tribe is a place where you can feel good about feeling good. Through careful land stewardship and collaboration with animals, we’re leveraging natural design to: add an abundance of organic matter and nutrients to the soil, support an increasingly diverse ecosystem of plant and animal life, sequester harmful carbon out of the air, and replenish our natural aquifers. By supporting 1Tribe, you help us strengthen the resilience of our community.
We’re all 1Tribe, everyone is welcome.
COVID-19 | We do our best to keep up with local COVID19 protocols and make our space and events as COVID-mindful as possible–being out on a farm in the country is one of the best ways to get some respite from the pandemic, and we do what we can to welcome guests as considerately and safely as we can. We wear masks when indoors or in close outdoor proximity, like serving, with guests, and disposable masks and hand sanitizer are available in the Farmstore and at Events. Our publicly accessible bathrooms in the Bathhouse and Farmhouse are all cleaned and sanitized regularly, and have sanitizing wipes available for those who would like to use them. If you have any COVID-related questions or concerns–please feel free to reach out and we will do what we can to make your visit comfortable and safe.
Accessibility | 1Tribe is a farm with many old buildings, dirt paths, and other obstacles that may be challenging for folks that are sight or mobility impaired–but we are working to make more of the farm more accessible to more people. While the Farmhouse and the Summit both have steps leading to their entrances and are therefore wheelchair inaccessible, they do have sturdy bannisters at their primary entry points. All of our Primitive Cabins have sturdy railing on their stairs, while Cabin #5 has a ramp for easier access. The bathhouse nearby has ramp access, both single-occupancy toilets are wheelchair accessible, and 1 of the 3 outdoor showers is completely wheelchair accessible as well. We are doing what we can with challenging conditions to make the Farm as accessible to as many people as possible, whether they’re staying, visiting, or attending a program or workshop–if you have any accessibility questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Hello and thank you for considering, or booking, at 1Tribe Farm! There are a lot of reasons to be excited about visiting the farm–and because we are a fully functioning farm with machinery, livestock of all sizes, and old buildings on the property–there are also a few rules and guidelines that come along with that! We’ve found that guests have a lot of questions about what they can and can’t do on the farm, so we created this handy reference guide with popular questions as well as some things you might not have considered. We’d appreciate it if you reviewed them before and during your visit, and welcome any further questions!

>> Kids on The Farm
We love having kids on the farm! Their eyes light up with wonder and excitement to see life happening right in front of them, have tons of questions, want to touch everything–and we get it! A lot of kids today don’t get to see this stuff up close and personal, and we’re glad to be part of changing that. For this reason, we really recommend families take a Farm Tour while they’re here–where there will be plenty of opportunities to see, learn about, and maybe even touch some animals! For the rest of your visit, we ask that parents keep children under supervision and make sure their children:
There are a lot of areas to run around and explore nature near the cabins, and we hope that Parents and Kids understand why it’s not a good idea to wander into the pastures or woods. While the farm is an enjoyable and comfortable place to be, there are many opportunities for an accident to happen–and we ask that Parents take this seriously, go over our rules with their Kids before and during their visit, and always keep their children under supervision while at the Farm.
>> Stolen or Damaged Property - Lost Property
We are a small business that runs on the work of a small but dedicated group of people–we’re not a big hotel chain, corporation, or conglomerate. We go to the store to buy our towels at the same price everyone else does! We ask that you please respect our hard work and not take any linens, decorations, products, or anything else from on and around the farm. We’re lucky to have some wonderful guests that are more likely to wash and fold linens than to take a towel home, but were we to find something missing or seriously damaged during clean up after a guest stay–the guest is responsible for recouping the costs.
Please, if something gets broken, damaged, or breaks on the property while you’re here–we’d appreciate it if you let us know as soon as it happens so we can address it as soon as possible, which can help us prevent worse damage.
If you lost or forgot something on the property? Please contact us as soon as possible; if we find anything during clean up, we will notify you and arrange getting your things to you. Unclaimed lost property will be kept for at least 3 months, but we cannot guarantee anything will be kept longer, and cannot be liable for anything left behind.
If you’re staying at the Primitive Cabins, we ask that you please not leave any belongings unattended in public areas and to generally keep your things secure in your cabin–we are not responsible for any lost or stolen property. If you believe another guest has taken something of yours, please notify us rather than attempting to take the matter into your own hands.
>> Fire on the Farm
One of the really enjoyable parts of camping and being close to nature is having a nice fire to gather around and cook over–our guests are welcome to enjoy fire at the farm in the publicly accessible Fire Pit in the middle of the cabins, regardless of which property they’re staying at. There is a clearly defined area for the fire, wood provided, and comfortable swings and chairs all around for your enjoyment–if there are any issues, there is a fire extinguisher and first aid kit nearby in the Bathhouse.
If you read this all the way though–thank you. We take safety at the farm very seriously, and appreciate guests who do too! If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
