Come enjoy a stay on a working farm! Collect eggs from the ducks, pet the rabbits, play with the dogs and cats, or just watch and enjoy as the honeybees go about their daily chores and the ducks free range and just do what ducks do! 

We have campsites available in the back of the property that is secluded and heavily wooded, including a creek running across the property, or you can pitch your tent anywhere you'd like...close to the animals, among the fruit trees, or up by the pond. 

Most of the pastureland areas are clear of trees and free of power lines, so feel free to bring a kite! or a frisbee!

Come see the wildflowers while they are blooming from mid-March to mid-April! 

During the summer, we have a variety of fruit trees that produce, including peaches, pears, figs, and apples. 

We have many other farm products available for purchase...free range duck eggs; homemade breakfast sausage; rabbit meat; homemade breads, blackberry cobbler, and a variety of pies; homemade blackberry jam, strawberry jam, blackberry mango jam, and blackberry pineapple jam; a variety of hard lotions and lip balm made with beeswax. Check out our website for more details and pricing. Contact us for availability of products, as most of it is seasonal! 

While you are here, you will experience a wide variety of wildlife. We have seen deer, wild hogs, coyotes, bobcats, armadillos, skunks, snakes of all kinds, turtles, tree frogs, leopard frogs, a variety of lizards, hawks, owls, Mexican eagles, bald eagles, mountain lions, cottontails, voles, gophers, red fox, squirrels, song birds of many kinds...bluebirds especially like the yaupon, scorpions, insects, and more insects!

If you need a little shopping while you're here, we are only 20 minutes from the Jewett Flea Market, which is the second Saturday of every month. And if you need some cheap entertainment, we are 10 minutes from the New Baden Jamboree, the oldest running country music jamboree in Texas (65 years!) on the first Saturday of every month.

We had a wonderful stay! We arrived pretty late, but Karen and Darren were so welcoming and understanding with our schedules! Us three girls were a little skeptical about the camp toilet at first but it wasn’t that bad at all! The whole operation was very professional and it’s clear to see that they’re very passionate about what they’re doing. They let us have a first pick of the breads and produce before they took it to the farmers market and let us help pick up some duck eggs and even hold some of the baby bunnies! They live in a Class 3 dark sky and stargazing was one of the main reasons why we wanted to go camping, and we were not disappointed! The stars are so clear, the constellations seem bigger than usual! We had a great time and would love to come back when the blackberries are in season

Absolutely loved my stay at Hollydew Farm. The location was easy to find and the hosts were very welcoming and kind. The site was toward the back of the property. It was quiet and well maintained. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Karen and Daren were so friendly and hospitable. We toured their operation and sampled many of their delicious products before hitting the road, after peaceful weekend in a secluded area of the property. Great people, great campsite, great weekend.

Karen and Darren were great host and very welcoming, they were even able to accommodate us coming in a little later on in the day. Getting the chance to learn about how they make their products and trying them was such a great experience.

What a trip and an experience! We felt welcome from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. We had a great time on lovely, secluded grounds and then had a fantastic tasting experience and learned a great deal about the day to day life on the farm.

As soon as we pulled up, we felt welcome. Darren greeted us and guided us to a cozy and private camping spot in the back of their property, where we got to sleep under the stars and enjoyed a fire in one of their pits. They have ducks and rabbits and a myriad of lovely Texas flora, and they were kind enough to give us a tour of their wonderful homestead! We got to sample their jams and mustards (which were incredible) and learn about this amazing couple and how they live. Hollydew Farms is a cozy gem. Our stay was so special and we look forward to coming back!!

Be sure to stop by the house and sample their homemade products--the jams are amazing, made with love and half of the sugar of the store bought stuff. This place is worth a visit even just for the fresh fire roasted salsa!!

Thanks so much to Darren and Karen for the wonderful experience.

Took my wife and two young girls here and the goats were extremely nice and responsive to questions. It was very secluded and easy to get in and out of. Even got to sample some of the products they make.

The farm was a really beautiful corner of Texas. Karen and Darren were very welcoming to us and the kids. We got a nice socially distant walk around the farm to scope out our site and pick the best one for the evening.
We had a great time hanging out under the stars. In the morning, the kids helped collect duck eggs and learned about the rabbits.
We were also able to try out a selection of their homemade products and get some great gifts for upcoming visits and a big selection for our breakfasts.
A great spot and a great couple.
