Nestled in Manistee National Forest is a family farm. Trailheads lead to hundreds of miles of public two-track, and the woods roll between oak/maple/beech and aspen/birch. On the farm is a 20 acre lake with a floating island, tent sites, and healthy ecosystems with plenty of wildlife.

Our farm pastures pigs, cattle, sheep and poultry, investing in our dirt and our neighbors. We are provision family farms because we provide for our animals even as we are provided for. Drop on in at the house and we may have time for a little tour.

In the woods is a small composting toilet, but you're welcome to fertilize our pastures anytime.

The best time to visit Michigan forests is in October when the leaves turn color and the nights are cool. The mosquitoes are done for the winter and the air is brisk.

This place is simply amazing! Luke gave us a mind blowing tour of his farm, the animals were people safe and many friendly. No smells and One mosquito came to visit per night. Really feel recharged after my trip.

Thanks for entertaining that last mosquito. Hope you gave it a good high 5 on the way out. We're glad our place can be so restful. Come again

It was beautiful. A great view, secluded campsite that was close to a few different swimming choices; the site had everything we needed for a rustic visit, and the host & family were beyond hospitable. 10/10 would recommend!

I got the chance to stay at Beaver Pond instead of the pasture and it was great! Very private, beautiful view. Lots of birds to watch. Clean privy and lots of firewood available.

What a beautiful and peaceful place. I came with a pop up camper-unless you are a pro and not a novice like myself, I would keep it as a place for saved for tent camping. They were super helpful and responded quickly with questions.
