    About Windhorse Hill Retreat Center

    The Dojo is located at Windhorse Hill Retreat Center, a serene and private 18 acre retreat-like setting nestled on a hilltop adjacent to 45 acres of protected conservation land. The farm is 10 minutes from Greenfield and Old Deerfield, and just 25 minutes from Amherst and Northampton.

    Old Deerfield is just over the Pocumtuck Ridge behind the farm. People come from all over the country to ride on the Scenic Bikeway that runs past the farm along the Connecticut River. We are in the heart of the fertile Pioneer Valley (also known as the ‘Happy Valley”) rich with organic farmlands, flowing rivers and green mountains.  

    The Five College Consortium, composed of Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts, enriches the area with many cultural, educational and artistic events.
