D Acres is located on 180 mostly wooded acres and has extensive annual, perennial, forest gardens and fruit orchards surrounding the modern community building. They raise chickens, ducks, and pigs and have a working pair of oxen on site who help with sustainable forestry operations. Wild turkeys, coyotes, and owls are frequent visitors, and it is not unusual to see signs of beavers, moose or even black bears. They grow ample food to feed residents and overnight hostel guests, as well as the many visitors who come to regular food events at the farm.  
 
Overnight guests may stay in comfortable private rooms or in our large shared room inside the community building, or choose to camp outside on tent platforms or grassy areas. The community building is a spacious structure containing guest rooms, a library, a craft room, a well equipped wood shop, a modern commercial grade kitchen, a root cellar and a cozy communal dining area.
