Quiet and serene farm located in Essex County. Watch the sun set across the fields, and wake to the sound of roosters crowing. Our farm operates as a petting farm and educational centre, private tours are available to book during your stay. Our farm is home to many different animals, such as horses, cows, sheep, alpacas, goats, pigs, emus and a variety of feathered and fuzzy friends. Kids are especially welcome to enjoy the play area. Don't forget to visit our farm store, where you can find local products, frozen meats, fresh eggs, honey and more! Feel free to make use of the event barn if you need a spot to escape the rain for making meals or hanging out. Event barn is located in the main farmyard parking lot.

Alpaca Lovers Site
Nice spot with lots of space for whatever you might be camping in, as well as your vehicle if you're using a tent like we did. I loved all the animals and walked around taking tons of pictures of all of them. I never actually met the host (most of my time was spent visiting friends nearby) but I was able to easily contact her via text and she promptly answered any questions I had. There's also a nice firepit and lots of stuff for kids to play on, but the only public washroom I recall is a yellow portapotty which, while serviceable, isn't ideal. Overall I enjoyed the site very much, particularly because of all the cute animals running around :)

Alpaca Lovers Site
Site to ourselves.
Nicole was very accomodating and since we were the only ones camping, we could pick any site we liked. The Alpaca lovers site is wide open and we preferred some privacy from the tree line, thus opted for the Funny Farm site instead. It was a warm weekend and we wanted to use the airco in our trailer, so Nicole rented out a generator for our use. It did not have an RV ready plug and sinds we were planning to visit Windsor, we bought a conversation plug. Now the generator is RV ready. The animal farm is a nice bonus. You're far enough away from the chickens that the won't keep you up. The only criticism we have is for the price we expect a shower facility. As we only stayed one night we were okay this time. This was our first Hipcamp outing as we usualy visit Ontario Parks. We are used to better facilities, for a lower price. We tried out Hipcamp since the OP were all fully booked. A $10 drop in price would likely bring more campers. We will still recommend Sunny Birches Acres as we did have a great time.

Amazing Sunset - Loud Roosters
The field was beautiful. Nice open space with a beautiful sunset. A great spot for someone looking to pitch a tent for a night or two. A little loud at night with the constant rooster and chicken sounds. Portable washroom and potable water was available at the farm/hosts residence. We didn’t see the picnic table but we didn’t ask either.

Funny Farm Site (Private firepit)
Nice camping spot, good host!
This camping spot felt unique to us! It was very nice to camp in this vast open field and at the same time to have the farm and the animals just a minute away. Nicole was really nice and helpful. Access to potable water pretty close was a big plus. The toilet was a porta potty though and we would have liked to have access to a picnic table (Nicole lent us a foldable table) and a bit of shade but those were minor annoyances. We recommend!
