A Small Quiet Farm For Nature Lovers! Folk Tree Farm is a lovely 21-acre farm located at the center of Washington Island. The private second floor guest space has a separate outside staircase entry; the farmers live year round on the ground floor. We are starting our fourth year at the farm and are busy working in the garden, building a greenhouse, tending our goats, and planting our fruit and nut orchard. We welcome you to the island and to our farm. People of all backgrounds are very welcome.

The space
Folk Tree Farm consists of a large farmhouse built in 1906: Shawn and Casey live on the ground floor downstairs and the guest space is upstairs with a private entry. The farm has a large hay field where dogs can run, a small organic vegetable field, and a pasture for the goats in the back, surrounded by large trees and flowering shrubs. It's a very private farm, accessed down a long dirt road. We have a fire pit and bbq (bring your own firewood and charcoal). We often walk our goats around the property and guests are welcome to accompany us.

The Historic Dairy and Lavender Farm is located 0.5 miles from our farm. It is an easy walk from Michigan Road, up Range Line to the lavender farm. There's a grocery store that closes 5:30 pm Monday thru Saturday, and 1 pm on Sunday. It has most things and a decent selection of beer and liquor. There is a yoga studio at the Hotel Washington, the Gathering Ground Farmer's Market at KK Fiske's on Saturdays and Wednesdays, a Farm Museum with historic buildings and equipment, Mountain Tower for high views, and the Red Barn and TPAC for music and stage events. There are also several churches. Rock Island is just a 15 minute ferry ride from Jackson Harbor.

Folk Tree Farm is a small, 21 acre homestead farm on Washington Island with the goal of integrating dairy goats, vegetables, and fruit & nut trees in an ecologically harmonious system. The name derives from the deep working relationships that many peasant cultures have had with trees and land throughout time. These folk cultures depend on the land for their daily necessities and livelihood. Folk Tree Farm is Casey Dahl and Shawn Murray.

During your stay

Every day is different on the farm. Some days we work off-farm and are not always immediately available. Some days we work the entire day in the garden. We often do things that might be interesting to guests, such as feeding, milking or walking the goats, working in the garden, mucking the barn, inoculating shiitake logs, or grafting trees for our orchard and tree nursery business. We also have a fairly large and diverse library of books available in the rental for reading during your stay. Interested in playing a little music around the campfire? Bring your acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, djembe, washboard, voice...and let's hang out!
