We had a blast ! We spent four nights on the farm and everything was great! Melissa and Gary were super hosts, checking in if we needed aomething, giving us tips on where to visit and most importantly how the luggage loo works (very clean, tidy and organized!). We loved feeding the animals, although they did get a little too close when we were cooking haha. Overall a great experience ! 😊😊😊

the hosts were super friendly and so were the animals. we had a turkey come and visit us on the campsite. they also had a few essentials to buy and rent which was super handy since we forgot to bring sponges. Melissa was available to answer any questions we had and helped us pick a campsite that fit our needs best. would definitely visit again!

a turkey came and sat with me at the campsite the hosts had flags put up in the driveway (the one on the far right - not visible in the photo - is an orange every child matters flag)

We had the best time! It’s a beautiful piece of land and the hosts have thought of absolutely everything we could possibly need. Hanging out with the chickens and turkeys by our tent was magical, and the fresh eggs can’t be beat. We can’t wait to return!

Wow, I couldn't have had a better experience! Amazingly kind and caring hosts, beautiful land, and oh the farm animals. I fell head over heels in love with the turkeys. They were just so happy to join us in the morning as we drank our coffee. The glow of the sun over the barn in evening hours is absolutely enchanting. So many memories were made, and I cannot wait to make more when my partner and I return for our next getaway.

The late afternoon and evening hours make the barn glow We always had a visitor for morning coffee.  What an awesome way to start the day! (Don't worry--I promise we did not caffeinate the chickens!)420 Friendly Camping on the FarmWe stayed in our van in the site closest to the barn.  We were able to easily get our van to the site.

It was a great open site, with everything we needed! It was so nice waking up and seeing chickens turkeys and pigs roaming the yard, they were all so cute! They even had free games to borrow like giant Yahtzee, and a shop where you can purchase homemade jams, or fresh eggs! We were very thrilled with our stay, 10/10 would recommend!!
