Our 130 acre property is currently an organic heirloom vegetable seed farm that is only 12 minutes from Ann Arbor. Part of it was formerly owned by the Egeler family who at one time owned quite a bit of Marshall Rd and part of it was owned by the Mersereau family. It was formerly a conventional farm, but we've converted it to organic production. The rolling land is 1/2 forest and 1/2 fields, making it a biodiverse hot spot for plants, animals, and fungi.

Lovely, local farm
This was our first Hip Camp experience and it won’t be our last. We needed a place to stay while visiting Ann Arbor, and Michael’s organic farm fit the bill. The property is convenient to UM and the nearby town of Dexter was a nice discovery. The host is helpful, the property scenic with woods and fields and plenty of birds. It’s worth touring the farm itself if you have time — and in the face of a thunderstorm Michael checked on us. We stayed dry but it was good to know we could use his barn just in case. Overall, highly recommended!!

This is a nice local place to grab a site year round. So far, I have only winter camped there, but want to see it when the leaves are on the trees. Michael is a fantastic host! While you're there, grab some of Michael's organic seeds. My daughter swears by them.

We stayed in the trailer spaces, and they were lovely. They had a nice view across a large field toward the setting sun. There are a number of trails to walk. Best of all, it is very close to Ann Arbor and two sets of friends we visited, as well as taking in the night life in downtown. Michael was warm and welcoming. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful place to camp and relax in nature, but still close enough to the city if you want to go out and do things! Thank you Michael for accommodating us on such a last minute basis for the night!

Great place. Convenient to get to. Host and dog excellent. I had a wonderful evening. Went to bed about midnight and never really sleep due to highway noise. Left early in the morning a day early.

Very nice spot very close to home. Mike and the entire family were really friendly. They helped jump start my buddies car in the morning. We rode out a snow storm and very low temperatures in a very cool shelter on the camp site. Nice!

Wonderful experience that exceeded our expectations! Host was helpful and kind (with distancing and other accommodations provided for these pandemic times). Plenty of privacy, great views during the day and night for stargazing. We camped during a warm stretch in November, and the rising sun warmed the tent so nicely. Also really loved the firewood (oak from the property I am guessing), was great for cooking over the fire. We will be back in the Spring!

Michael was friendly and welcoming. He greeted us from a safe distance, gave us the rundown on the farm, and disappeared for the rest of our stay. We ended up at site 5 and it was the perfect place to enjoy the Halloween blue moon, complete with howling coyotes. The property itself is neat and fun to explore. We appreciated the option to have fire wood waiting for us. We are already looking forward to returning in the spring.

Delightful, peaceful, restorative. We wish it hadn't rained, because the view of the starts from the farm's field would be heavenly. Wonderful land, and the host was just present enough to let us know his support, and still allowed us complete privacy. We plan to be back.

Great stay at a cool organic farm
Micheal’s farm is very quaint and sweet. We had a nice tiMe visiting Ann Arbor which is very close. We had a great fire late into the night and a very comfortable sleep. One con is that the highway is a little closer than we expected and you can hear the cars. But we were tired so we fell right asleep. The porta pottie Is close and we felt very secluded.

The nature and nurture farm was amazing. The hosts were great and very welcoming. We camped in site 9, we had a nice flat place to set up the tent, the site was secluded, and the view over the hayfields was great. I would highly recommend this camp.

We were looking for a secluded COVID safe site to use when we brought a family member down to UM Hospital for surgery. This fit the bill nicely. Very quiet. Only two campsites. And very convenient to the hospital.
