Enjoy your stay next to our edible forest garden on the Edge of a beautiful meadow along side the orchard of berries, nuts  and fruit trees.  Various seasons will offer you an opportunity to pick your own breakfast in our maturing establishment.  If you are a permacultrue  enthusiast you will enjoy exploring, and examining our 7 year permacultuire food forest with chestnut seedlings already tall enough to climb , 10-foot hazels bearing buckets of nuts and a different selection of raspberries, blackberries, gooseberry, currents, golden berries, service berries and Mulberries.  We can arrange for an educational experience with our permaculture expert if requested in advance    Enjoy a stroll   through the meadow trail to breath in  morning views and evening fireflies and stars.  This camp area is very private but household amenities are not far away if desired.  This site is much more private than Mickelberry Forest Garden Site and the beatiful mountain view is only a small step away.  With small travel we offer nearby blue mark trails, mountain biking, winery, lake and outdoor activities are at your fingertips and your hosts will be happy to provide any assistance needed to find or enjoy these opportunities.  The Creamery (Ferris Acres) is one of the best farm ice cream shops in the East.  We can provide breakfast upon request from our free range chickens on our kiwi lined deck with beautiful mountain views.  It would not be rare to have a guitar player join your fire.  Private yoga or other experiences can be arranged upon request or just come and enjoy the croak of the bullfrog and the sound of the crickets.  We are new and growing our amenities so at this time check the overview for available ammendties but you can guarantee we won't disappoint.  Come visit Mickelberry Forest Garden and The Meadow's Edge our newest most private site!!!

The Mickelberry Forest Gardens is a great place to camp near Newtown, Connecticut. Bill And Amy were friendly and gracious hosts, making sure we knew where everything was and suggesting activities that we could do in the area. They even accommodated our last minute request for farm fresh eggs that they sell, which were delicious.

The property contains two sites, and we were lucky enough to have the option to stay at either. The sites are beautifully kept and well stocked with fire wood, tinder, and places to sit. The property itself is quite large and has stunning views of the rolling hills/mountains covered with thick forest. You'll also find on the property a chicken coop, a lovely pond, an equestrian jumping fence (to practice our high jump of course), and a tree swing that overlooks the whole property.

Overall this site was great, We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for having us!

I cannot express how grateful I am for Bill and Amy. This was Charlie and my first Hipcamp experience and we LOVED it. From the peaceful farm meadow to the constant company of butterflies and kitties, it was such a magical anniversary. Bill and Amy were so sweet and accommodating. And the location was perfect; just a five minute drive from stunning hiking trails! We would absolutely go back and definitely recommend this location to future campers.

Meadows Edge was wonderful and Amy is even better. I accidentally booked the wrong week and showed up a week early and she still let us stay. The area is near a state park which made for incredible hiking. It was all such a refreshing and relaxing experience even despite sleeping in negative degree weather ! Amy offered us blankets and everything else that we needed during our stay, it really was a great experience !
