A rich family heritage awaits you on this Centennial Farm nestled in the rolling hills of northern Missouri. Matt's great grandfather chose this picturesque area to settle with his wife and 12 children in 1870 and establish the Reichert family farm, now known as Sycamore Valley Farm. Matt, third from the youngest of 16 children, carries on the farming tradition with his wife, Tina, and their children. Carrying on the rich agricultural tradition of his ancestors raising row crops, running a cow-calf management intensive grazing operation, and extensive gardening keeps this homeschooling family busy. But not too busy for a swim in "ye ole swimmin hole", or singing and roasting marshmallows over a campfire under a star studded sky.
Since established in 1994, Sycamore Valley Farm Bed & Breakfast has hosted college students, foreign exchange students, youth groups, families, business travelers, vacationers, international guests, and couples searching for a country bed and breakfast to enjoy a relaxing get-away.
"Our greatest desire is to offer all our guests gracious country hospitality in the peaceful atmosphere that accompanies farm life, making their stay a memory to treasure. Return to a simpler way of life where things move at a slower pace." - Matt, Tina, Kaitlynn, and Gabriel.
Sycamore Valley Farm Bed & Breakfast is open 365 days a year.
