The SpaceABC 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.
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.
ABC acres presently offers two separate homes for your vacation rentals and farmstays - the Gate House and the Guest House (pls see separate listing for Guest House details).
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, fully-equipped kitchen. With an interior of about 1200 sqft, the Gate House was built with health and wellness in mind for the resident - constructed using no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) both inside and out, HEPA filtration for high quality interior air all season long, and an ‘Alive Water’ system to reinvigorate and reenergize the water at all points of use.
Stepping outside, the Gate House is flanked by three outdoor spaces for guests’ enjoyment - an East facing deck from which you can enjoy the sunrise, a North side patio situated alongside the newly planted fruit orchard, and on the South side, a pergola for relaxing in the shade, taking in sweeping views of the farm and area mountains, or enjoying an outdoor celebration/bbq. Throughout the enclosed, spacious, and dog-friendly yard (home to an all-season/all-weather dog house), are seasonal edibles for you to enjoy. 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!
From the Gate House you may witness farm staff setting up pasture irrigation, a cattle herd grazing in a temporary paddock, whitetail deer jumping a wooden fence rail, or the distant calls of roaming (URL HIDDEN) is these on-farm experiences that give staying at the Gate House its uniqueness and charm.
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 town’s happenings and city amenities. Be it fishing, hiking, or boating...golfing, skiing, or wine-tasting...grocery stores and dining....rock climbing or hot air ballooning….whatever you might fancy, ABC acres is within it’s reach.
