Little Goat Farm at the Lake

Recently featured in The Washingtonian Magazine and on CNN, Little Goat Farm at the Lake is a picturesque destination, situated on 34 acres of pasture and woods. Just 38 minutes from Washington D.C., this stunning location is complete with an apple orchard, berry patch, large greenhouse, chickens, dairy goats, bee hives, and alpacas, all on a 12-mile clean drinking lake. Little Goat Farm at the Lake is dedicated to providing healthy, sustainable food and products for restaurants and visitors, while engaging the community in educational programming (such as "Goat Yoga") and fostering a deep connection with the animals.

 

When not working, students are invited to explore the D.C. area, go kayaking along the lake, camp, enjoy a bonfire or participate in one of the many educational opportunities. 

 
Meet the Farmers
Suzanne Marsh

Master Gardener, PhD

Suzanne Marsh, her husband Robert and their children have lived on the farm for just over two years. Suzanne is a certified Master Gardener with a gamut of interest from soil content to foraging and propagation.  She has her PhD in Curriculum and Instruction and Quantitative Measurement from the University of Florida and is a former teacher and devoted educator. There are endless opportunities to participate in and assist with educational programming on a weekly basis. The farm is also a member of a strong educationally-based County’s Bee Keepers Association. Warm and knowledgeable, this host family is one of our favorites.

Accommodations

Two selected students will each be given their own bedrooms in the main farm house overlooking the lake. All meals will be supplied and/or prepared by the Marsh family (taking into account any allergies or dietary restrictions). Meals (lunch in particular) are opportunities for community gathering, daily updates, debriefs and connection.
