When first-generation farmers Jess and Ryan Pfisterer decided to create an Airbnb glamping experience nestled in the woods on their one hundred-acre farm (located just outside Damascus ON), they weren’t sure how it would be received. It didn’t take long to find out. ‘Before we’d even opened for overnight guests,’ Jess relates, ‘blogTO published a piece on the place. Within days, we were booked for almost the entire season.’ 

It’s no surprise. Replete with emperor bell tent that sleeps six, solar generator, fire pit, bbq and more (including a real queen bed), Pfisterer Farm’s glamping experience isn’t one you’ll soon forget. Think about it: farm tours included, trails and lakes nearby, and the picturesque towns of Arthur and Grand Valley just down the way. 

Not up for an overnight stay? Then why not sign up for Pfisterer’s Chicken CSA (which includes a monthly box of pasture-raised chicken, from the farm to your table) or shop their online farm store for free-range eggs, grass-fed beef and pork, and seasonal products too.
