ORGANIC FARM STAY RETREATS
In the Northwest mountains of St. Croix USVI, you will find a unique jungle-like getaway like none other in the Caribbean: where you can immerse yourself completely into the rainforest, cucooned by vibrant life all around, on a productive Farm to School and Community Supported Agriculture(CSA) farm. Get your hands dirty in the fields, explore the rainforest, or just lay back and enjoy the slow pace of an active farm, off grid island style. Simple solar powered accommodations are only one part of your stay.
“Stay on Ridge to Reef Farm at the Virgin Islands Sustainable Farm Institute. The farm in St. Croix’s pocket-size rainforest welcomes overnight guests in stilted cabanas and in Hawk’s Nest.”

FARM STAY OPTIONS
Note, staying on the farm is like glamping (Glamorous Camping). As a matter of fact you can camp if you preferred to bring your own tent!
Cabanas are petite, screened in all around, ceiling fan and lights, simple beds, outdoor porch lounging area with outdoor sink. There's an outhouse close by in addition to the main Community Center bath house and regular toilets. The community center is the main shared kitchen for guests, providing all the basic amenities of a kitchen. Walking distance between community center/parking/bathhouse and the cabanas is about 3 minutes on uneven terrain. Anticipate wearing comfortable walking shoes and using headlamps when walking to and from your cabana.
1) Tent Camping: Bring your own tent: $35/night/2-person tent.
2) Bunk Cabana: Share your cabana (hostel style): $55/night/person
3) Queen Cabana: Enjoy your private cabana or Treehouse: double occupancy $115/night (every additional person: $30 extra). Private cabanas can be booked by 1 to 4 people. s = single bed, db = double bed
4) Groups: Group reservations, corporate team building, and custom programs in sustainability/organic farming, up to 35. Group volunteer discounts available. For group rates, please contact us directly to discuss how we can host your group. Staying at the farm is a transformational experience for groups, especially high school and college level. How would we describe staying at the farm for groups? Adventurous, off grid, sustainability focused, real, authentic, down to earth and in it, and will provide so many opportunities for life lessons in personal development.
If you can remember that time growing up where you had an awakening of the world around you, the farm is that kind of place.
Times: Check-in 12-5pm. Check-out is noon.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE...
Stay for a few nights, a week, or a season. Volunteer in the fields and gardens; feed the chickens and the pigs; stroll the property or hike to beautiful Annaly Bay, Sunset Beach, and the Danish sugar mills; visit historic Frederiksted, Christiansted, and the rest of St. Croix for a cultural and scenic island experience; or just relax knowing that your time here is helping to make this small fragile piece of the world a more sustainable place. We love our visitors and what you bring to this place!
