Experience The Oostema Way Of Life

Surrounded by farmland and contented livestock, visitors can enjoy a relaxing break from the fast-paced city lifestyle, with plenty of room and freedom in a beautiful, rural setting.

With 117 acres to explore, the Farmstead is the perfect getaway for adventure and relaxation. Visitors can enjoy plenty of walking paths through the berries, roads for bicycle and scooter riding, and an abundance of opportunities for nature study (Eagles, Snow Geese, Ducks, and other birds), photography, and other artistic endeavors.

Start your day with countryside views, breathing in the fresh air while watching the sunrise over Mt. Baker. Take in the beauty that is this vast land. End your day with mesmerizing sunsets while relaxing in front of your private firepit 🔥 Crates of wood are available to purchase.

Explore the gardens, take a walk through the berries and say hello to our cows, chickens, goat, and pig. Stop awhile and take in the panoramic views!

There's no shortage of fun outdoor activities here on the farm and beyond.

𝐎𝐔𝐑 𝐎𝐍𝐋𝐈𝐍𝐄 𝐒𝐓𝐎𝐑𝐄Cook up farm-fresh meals by purchasing ahead via our store website – enjoy home-grown eggs, sausage, bacon, Wagyu beef, and other delicious meats.

And don't forget to bring a cooler so you can take some beef, chicken, and pork back home with you. Once you taste it you'll want more! For more pictures and videos, check out our website, or you can find us @oostemafarmstead on IG or FB.


While the Farmstead is tranquil, you may hear farm equipment occasionally from the neighboring farms and on our farm. We do have workers that access the Raspberry Fields from the driveway on our property and, unfortunately, we cannot predict when they will be working in the fields – our work on the farm is controlled by nature 😊

The Main Farmhouse also offers a charming apartment. (We reside on the upper level of the Main Farmhouse). This offers 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths with a large living room, kitchenette, and private patio. Or if you are into Tiny Living, our Tiny Farmhouse is also available, an excellent option for a group vacation. 

While the campground is located within a shared space on the Farmstead. You will see us working in the garden and around the Farmstead, and we also have guests from the other accommodations, including several RVs and tent campers during peak season. We provide just 9 sites in total so there's plenty of space for everyone.

🧰𝗖𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗔𝗻𝗱 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗹𝗱 𝗦𝘂𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻🔨The guests must supervise any children at their party at all times. The property is a working farm with electric fences, machinery, sharp tools, livestock, and other items not present at a typical lodging facility. Renter is responsible for ensuring his or her own safety, and the safety of any children in the rental party, and assumes all risks associated with staying on the farm.

I really enjoyed staying on Lisa's farm. The atmosphere was very relaxing and reminded me of my childhood when I would stay on my grandmas farm. There is so much to do on the farm, and in the area. Everyhting is very clean and the hosts are very nice. I recommend reading the blogging instructions, even if it can seem like a lot, they provide lots of useful information about the area. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Hi Helena, Thanks for the review. It was nice to see you again. It is going to be a fun-filled summer here on the Farmstead. Mary is due June 26, and we will have 4 more baby calves be born this summer.

Lisa was great host! She was kind, gracious, checked in with me everyday. Camp site 7 is where I stayed, it was clean and had good tree coverage for shade. The farm has cows and raspberry fields to walk through.

I had a great time staying on the farm! Lisa has done a great job creating a fun environment to spend your time camping in. This is much more than a campground. You can walk around to look at the livestock, and check out the lettuce and turnips growing in the communal garden. Lisa also kindly provided firewood for me to use.

Lisa and her husband were great hosts. They had an information sheet ready for us and made sure we were oriented to where everything was. They even gave us a tour of the farm. I liked how clean the porta-potty was and appreciated the sink to do my dishes. They also provided us with wood for our firepit. I would definitely go again.
