The MacArthur House is situated on three hundred acres of land composed of both wild woodlands and working farmland. Our footpaths and trails lead to beaver ponds, cellar holes and the winding headwaters of the Whetstone Brook. Our farm includes:
Whetstone Ledges Farm, a small berry and vegetable farm owned and operated by Gail and Dan MacArthur. Wheststone Ledges grow raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and a wide variety of vegetables sustainably without the use of pesticides or toxic sprays. They also make wood-fired Maple Syrup in the spring. Whetstone Ledges’ farm stand is self-serve, and the berries are open for pick-your-own on most days throughout the summer season. The farm stand opens in mid/late June and runs through October.
Whetstone CiderWorks, an artisanal cidery owned and operated by Jason and Lauren MacArthur. Inspired by wine’s agrarian roots and food-friendly finesse, Whetstone CiderWorks sources the finest cider apples from local orchards. Pressed from a rack and cloth press, the sweet, honey-colored juice ferments to dryness, yielding a sophisticated, complex beverage.
Also located on the property is:
Lady Moon Holistic Health, Megan MacArthur Littlehales’ reiki and animal massage studio.
Whetstone Boats, Mark Littlehales’ wooden boat shop and painting studio.
Gary MacArthur Solar, custom design and installation for solar electric and hot water systems.
