"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” 

If you are looking to leave the hustle and bustle of urban life behind and to get away from it all in a relaxing country setting, then His & Hers Farm is the perfect place for you. Our farm and pastoral setting can be your peaceful getaway! Come find out how we have been working to preserve and enhance our historic farmhouse and barn. Experience an exhilarating morning sunrise with a mug of local coffee or a glorious evening sunset that may include seeing several deer, a wandering Moose or even a Black Bear; venture across to the scenic river or hike up onto the hills all around, go visit the cows next door at Gowen's Tamarack Farm, help to feed the chickens or just grab a good book and head out to the hammock under the century-old apple trees. Enjoy the calm of country life. All four seasons offer up something unique and special.  What's ours is yours while at His & Hers Farm! 

Conveniently located between here and there! But for those who need a bit more specifics, His & Hers Farm is located in the beautiful and rural town of Acworth (yes, our address is Alstead), in the southwestern part of New Hampshire. This is one of the few remaining untouched areas of the state, close but just far enough from the busy tourist spots and ski areas so that the condos and developments haven’t moved in yet. We hope that they never do in order to retain the existing rural charm.  A little more than 2 miles up the winding road is the iconic South Acworth Village Store, which dates back to 1865 and is like stepping back in time. (Their motto is "Conveniently located in the middle of nowhere.") In the other direction, past the historic covered bridge, is the charming village of Alstead with its busy General Store including gourmet selections of deli foods and lots of local goodies. Travel a few miles further to the beautiful towns of Walpole and Charlestown along the Connecticut River, and historic Bellows Falls, Vermont, just across the river. As the crow flies, we are about 7 miles from the river (Vermont Border) and about 30 miles north of the Massachusetts border.

“There is nothing like a dream to create the future”  As the owners, operators, and residents of His & Hers Farm, Wendy and Dean Gowen are excited to share all that this historic and beautiful property has to offer. This is an idea that had been in the works since the late 1970s, when Wendy was traveling with her family through the NH and VT countryside, on the way to her Dad’s alumni events at Dartmouth College. Along the way she gained inspiration from her visits to both the Woodstock Inn and Grafton Inn. In fact, it was this inspiration and her dream to run a country inn that prompted her to go to the Cornell University School of Hotel Management. Mix that inspiration with a husband that she met at Cornell, and that happens to have grown up on a farm in New Hampshire, and the rest is history! Wendy and Dean were married in 1987 and after a few moves, found themselves living in Buffalo, NY for thirty years and raising three children. They created a wonderful life for themselves with great friends and neighbors in the Western New York area. After their kids had all grown and moved on, they had an opportunity to move back home to Acworth, (while maintaining close work relationships in WNY) and to make a dream come true with running a Guest House and Event Venue. This also meant being able to live next to Dean’s parents at Tamarack Farm and near other family members.
