Leaping Lamb Farm is country living at its best. Located in a quiet valley of the Coast Range, the farm has a pasture, forest, and two creeks that leave a lot to explore. You can rent the cottage and the farm house, or just one for a more intimate gathering. Owners Scottie and Greg Jones have pasture-raised Katahdin/Dorper cross lamb, chickens, a peacock (for color), and the requisite dogs and cats. Minimum lodging stay and vendor travel fees apply.
