Greener Pastures Eco Farm

4 units · Motorhomes, Tents75 acres · Woodstock, ON
Our farming adventure began in the Spring of 2015 on a 15 acre farm. In 2020 we moved to a 75-acre farm just outside of Woodstock, Ontario. Carl's childhood passion of animal husbandry was given a new purpose when our family made a conscious decision to change the way we related to our food. We began a family quest to eat locally and sustainably. As our little farm grew we developed relationships with our greater community and Greener Pastures was born! As our farming adventure continues, we are loving that each day brings new opportunities for learning. We invite you to join us as we continue to seek greener pastures! While here, be sure to visit the On-Farm Shoppe for fresh eggs, meats, and other great local products.

Camp Willowbrook

6 units · Glamping95 acres · Amaranth, ON
We purchased this farm in 1998 from the previous farmer who had owned it since 1929. The train line ran right by the gate where the Kota hut now sits and would drop cattle right there to be finished and sold later at the Toronto Stockyards. Our barn was built in 1890 with the old farmhouse located across the creek. Two creeks meet the Grand River on our farm. The bunkie is situated north of the barn and faces Willow creek. During the summer the creek gets quite shallow but there are a couple of pools that work nicely for a float with our river tubes. The river also has a small swimming hole. The bunkie is nestled between 2 hills which creates a natural little valley. Campers can take a walk around the property or use the nearby long walking trail. New this spring, campers will be able to enjoy the firewood sauna, located close to the bunkie and nestled in a private spot near the creek.

Twin Ponds Glamping In Niagara

1 unit · Glamping25 acres · St. Catharines, ON
Escape to our nature-filled oasis on 25 acres of private farm land! Immerse yourself in nature without sacrificing comfort. Our tent features a cozy king bed, outdoor bathroom, BBQ, & fire pit. Surrounded by stunning views of nature & farm land. Explore nearby hiking trails & wineries, enjoy stargazing by the fire, or simply relax & reconnect with nature. If you're seeking a romantic getaway, our glamping experience is tailored to exceed your expectations. Guests will have access to power, but please keep in mind this is a remote experience. Charging phones and small personal electronics is no issue; however, we have limited power beyond what is provided with the tent & amenities. This is an active farm and there will be the occasional tractors that drive by, farmers out in the field at times, and bird bangers are put in the vineyard in mid August to mid September. They only go off periodically between 9:30am and dusk to accommodate guests peaceful mornings. Please exercise caution & respect while on the property with regards to the weather, wildlife, and farmers/neighbours. Hot Days / Hot Nights - For your comfort, plug in the Dyson fan to cool down, or unzip the tent to maximize airflow. This has proven to be effective as temperatures tend to cool down in the evenings around the farm. Cool Days / Cool Nights - We supply plenty of blankets for cooler evenings. We also suggest snuggling up with your favourite person who is sharing the glamping experience with you.
