Hello and welcome to The Olive Branch Lane Farmacy.On the farm we support an organic garden,chickens,rabbits,horses,our family.We are located on 40 acres of rolling farmland conveniently located near main Highways, yet secluded enough for relaxation.
We have a modern 3500 sq ft home to share with you and your travel companions. We prefer to share the property with our guests, unless of course your comfortable feeding the horses and tending to the chickens. When we are hosting guests we allow private access to the second floor of our home. This includes 3 bedrooms, sleeping 7, and a full shower/tub bathroom. The first bedroom consists of 1 very plush comfy queen bed, sleeps 2. The second bedroom consists of 1 double bottom bunk and 1 single top bunk, sleeps 2 adults or 3 children. The third bedroom consists of 1 queen bed and 1 single bed, sleeps 3. Each room will have a closet to hang clothes as necessary and a dresser available if needed as well.
Because the property comes along with a lot of daily care responsibilities our family prefers to stay on the property while we are hosting. When we are hosting guests we fully expect them to use our kitchen and all it has to offer. We will provide your own refrigerator if needed. Food is the one thing we prefer to keep separate. You will have full access to the laundry room,living room, the kitchen, the bonfire pit, the picnic tables, all porches patios and decks,playsets, the hiking trails, and any managed and cared for lawn area. You will also have access to our plethora of good ol Wisconsin yard games. We have even had a guest pitch a few tents out in the yard, apparently they do not have fireflies in Utah. If you've never seen a firefly...have we got a treat for you!
We would prefer limited access to our private bathrooms and bedrooms on the first floor.
Interaction with guests
Our family is experienced in hosting and understand the fine balance between a good host and a busy-body. When you arrive I will give you a general daily schedule of when our family uses the kitchen or laundry room. If you prefer to work around our schedule or work with our schedule, either is fine with us. Many of our guests are here on conventions, EAA, Music Festivals, mission teams,athletic events etc. We understand it can be exhausting and demanding to attend events like this. We encourage our guests to come home and get comfortable. Relax. Sit out in the garden. Play with the chickens. Go pet the horses, maybe even go for a ride or two with us. We expect your time here to be your time to relax and unwind from wherever the days adventures had you.
My husband and I are very familiar with the area and can direct you to the best places to eat and the worst places to eat. We can give you directions to Americas Number 1 Ice Cream Creamery right down the road, or even help you catch a world class race at Road America.
Other things to note
Our home is an open vessel of comfort to our travelers. We do have 4 children and a Landseer Newfoundland dog named Farley in the home on a daily basis. The children are home schooled and do spend most of their days in the summer playing outside and caring for their chores and animals on the farm. We teach our children to lead their lives with a servants heart and they will be the first to help you find the drinking glasses or find you the perfect marshmallow roasting sticks. The kids range in ages from 2-12. We encourage other families with children to stay in our home. We have an entire school room full of fun things and experiments to do. Pets can also be considered on a case by case basis.
No cussing...the kids are here.
No drunkenness... drunkenness will not be tolerated, we have little eyes on us at all times. Carrying yourself with integrity is appreciated.
Smoking is allowed outside only, please dispose of your butts respectfully.
No surprise additional guests.
Please respect our private areas.
Stay out of barns and sheds.
Do not feed animals without asking, including the kids :) We practice as much of an organic diet on this property with all living creatures as we possibly can. Feeding the chickens some left over non organic food could cost us our "organic eggs" label.
