Originally constructed in 1871 as a schoolhouse, the Manchester Hill home is rich with local history, right down to its bricks that were individually packed by hand and fired on the property. Today, Manchester Hill is home to Patrick and Jenie McGrath, along with their two kids and a slew of animals, and the property's four verdant acres house a bed and breakfast, winery, and farm.
Cultivating a smattering of pesticide-free produce such as asparagus, roma tomatoes, rhubarb, and sunchokes, the McGraths offer locals a share of their harvest through CSAs and at the Clintonville Farmers' Market. Pastured poultry, natural pork, and farm-fresh eggs originate from animals raised on the farm with sustainable and humane practices, such as vegetarian diets and nightly readings of Goodnight Moon in the barn before bed. Meanwhile, Manchester Hill's winery produces a handful of artisan wines, including a pink catawba, a traminette, a dry zinfandel aged in american-oak barrels, and zinfandel dessert wines, as well as sparkling apple cider.
Leave civilian life behind and suit up for three hours of extreme high-octane battles to determine whose clothes are the cleanest. Land Paintball provides all the necessities (a $17 value for rental package), including a mask, a marker, an air tank (with enough air to last the day), a hopper, a barrel sleeve, and 100 paintballs (a $5 value)—enough to apply a healthy base coat to any nearby corpus canvas. In the event that you take down 100 opponents with immaculate accuracy, or if you decide to graffiti your name on a nearby tree trunk, additional paintballs may be purchased on-site.
