STOWE FARM COMMUNITY (formerly Katywil). We are a multi-generational, child-friendly, rural co-housing community in Colrain, Massachusetts. We share resources and work together to nurture and support each other and the land on which we live.
There are currently 8 houses (1 is for sale) and 3 lots will be available in the spring.
Stowe Farm Community is rural but not isolated. We have single family homes, which afford privacy within a supportive community. We are neighbors working together to to improve the quality of our lives. Being supportive and helping each other succeed makes our community thrive. Some of us have home businesses and some drive to their jobs. We currently raise chickens, ducks, pigs, and goats. We make cheese and charcuterie (specialty meats), and have plans to grow some ingredients to support our neighbor’s brewery. We have community gardens, a greenhouse, tractor, truck, and other shared equipment and tools. We are planning for a common house/barn. Some day we hope to have a commercial kitchen for small food ventures.
We own individual lots, build our own homes and share the rest of the 80 acres, which include arable farmland, pasture to raise animals, and conserved forest.
