On the Farm

Where Imagination Thrives

Our extensive grounds contain shared spaces for relaxation, adventure and learning. While one guest explores the dense summer forest, another kayaks downriver from the Landing. Conceived as a fully functional microfarm, our 30 acres are full of activity zones where nature and people come together. As plants mature in the Greenhouse nursery, fresh fruit grows ripe in the Orchard. The Farm is a study in light and harmony, where life and living merge sustainably. Goldberry Woods Farm is a retreat unlike any other.

Food Forest

Our collection of forest-fresh ingredients grows by the season. Guests can explore nut harvesting, maple syrup production, foraging for fiddlehead ferns, mushrooms and more. These outings teach and delight our guests with delicious food and one-of-a-kind experiences.

The Fields

The beauty of micro-farming is the ever-changing abundance of annual and perennial vegetables and small fruit. No season is the same, but each delights with new additions and old favorites. In our thoughtfully curated fields, you'll find asparagus, peppers, heirloom tomatoes, beans, peas, lettuces and brassicas, and small fruits.  The list goes on and on!

The Greenhouse

Our best horticultural ideas begin in the greenhouse—part plant nursery, part micro-farm laboratory. As young plants grow, this provides shelter from the elements and a controlled environment to support maturation, from seed to sprout. Here, guests ask questions and learn the craft and science behind the Goldberry Woods philosophy.

The Orchard

Through seasons of planting and nurturing, we’ve revived a decades-old orchard where guests pick delicious organic fruit. What began as a neglected group of apple, pear and cherry trees now includes young Asian pears, peaches, quince, plums, figs and apricots. On warm days, stone fruit straight from the tree makes the perfect refreshment.

The Apiary

Something’s abuzz at Goldberry Woods—it’s our apiary, where our bees produce honey and help pollinate the diverse array of plants onsite. These friendly insects play a key role in the Farm’s rich biodiversity.

Meet The Owners

We can’t wait to welcome you to Goldberry Woods.  We lived in the busy Chicago suburbs but began spending every possible moment vacationing in Harbor Country.  On a week-long family vacation in 2011, we stumbled across the old River’s Edge B&B in Union Pier.  The property was close to the beach with beautiful woods and enough pasture to create a biodiverse micro farm.  
 
So here we are, and we are all-in.   We are so in love with Harbor Country, and we are just dying to share it with you!

Julie and Eric Haberichter, Innkeepers
