The Farm Restoration

Our purchase of the farm in 2015 began the process of restoringthe farm to its former glory. In partnership with the Natural ResourceConservation Agency we embarked on a journey to bring biodiversity and balanceback to the farm. We are working on meadow restoration, reducing invasivespecies, creating habitat to repopulate bob white quail and wild turkey.

Guests can enjoy the peace and quiet, wander the trails, visit the Nigerian dwarf dairy goat herd, watch our beautiful Texas Longhorns as they browse or see the black buck, Mouflon and Barbado sheep relaxing in the meadow. Wildlife viewing stands are available for those who would like to sit and observe our flora and fauna.

Come walk the Labyrinth located near the main farmhouse.

Finally a chance to relax! I have stayed at a few places on HipCamp and this was by far the best. Gorgeous landscape, welcoming hosts, cute outdoor shower, clean tent & bed, quiet at night, plenty of privacy. I cant wait to go back.

We got to personally meet Graham and he was kind enough to give us a little tour of the land. They do an awesome job taking care of their farm animals, and taking care of the glamping tent. Wonderfully safe and a great getaway!

Highly enjoyable stay. We loved sleeping in the tent. The bed was comfortable and sitting on the porch was very relaxing. Other highlights: walking around the property, observing the goats and chickens, hearing about the history of the property, walking the labyrinth, and grabbing a steak and a beer in Red Rock. We'll be back!

My daughter and I needed a mental vacation from our busy lives. We absolutely loved it here. We are already planning another trip with the family. I think we miss the goats and Turk Turk the most.

Graham and Karen have built a great facility with an awesome mission. The Glamping Glen was perfect place to stay, although the composting toilet requires some flexibility and sense of humor to use 😂.
Highly recommended and will return again.

We loved our stay in the glamping glen! Everything was beautiful and very peaceful. Graham was very welcoming and let us help feed the goats the evening we stayed there, all while filling us in on the many questions we had about the farm and property. The tent was comfortable and clean as well.
