21 acres

This was once a self sustaining farm built in the 1950s. The farm raised cattle, pigs, chickens. There was 35 tillable acres which produced corn and oats for the livestock. The farm had its own feed grinder in the old barn. There is an old hand built cooler room where all the meat was stored. There are four wells on the farm one of which is used for watering animals and cooling alpacas on hot summer days. One of our tent sites is in the corner of our alpaca pasture. You'll hear the roosters, goats, donkeys and more than likely, Rose, our Maremma livestock guardian dog, throughout your stay.

Tracy is genuinely good person and host, very accommodating since it was pretty chilly for a few days. If you love animals there’s a lot, very friendly dogs, cats, donkeys and goats. The bathroom was a great necessity.

A peaceful Fall weekend on the farm
My boyfriend and I had the most amazing stay at Aris Farm (FarmZen) !!! We felt like we were staying with good friends and the land is beautiful!!! I loved seeing the dogs and all the farm animals, especially the alpacas!! Tracy and Doug are wonderful and passionate people! We definitely felt peaceful during our stay and can’t wait to go back and stay longer!!! The amenities were great: a heated bathroom and sink, plenty of firewood, a water pump, even a cute log table and seats next to the campfire!

Camping with Alpacas!
Aris farm is a very special place. I felt such a connection to nature through all the animals and the big oak trees. Petting the alpacas, scratching the goats, and loving on the miniature horses and dogs was truly magical. This is a place of healing and restoration. Tracy took me on a tour around the farm and was so giving of herself and her time. I felt like we were friends just after an hour together. The campsite was perfect and having the bath house was a big deal for me. I would highly recommend you plan a stay here. It’s so much more than camping!

Camping at the farm!
Tracy’s farm was awesome, and we had an amazing time! She was an incredibly hospitable hostess and provided us with everything we needed and more. We had so much fun interacting with the animals and supporting the farm! There were llamas, alpacas, pigs, goats, donkeys, ponies, cats, dogs, and more. It was a blast! We set up camp by the pond and it was very private, clean, and comfortable! Would 100% recommend to anyone interested in a farm and camping experience, it is the best of both worlds!

Plenty of shade and alpacas!
We car camp in a van. Our site had ample shade, a huge campfire ring(4 feet across), lots of firewood and a large bathroom just steps away. The site was clean, well thought out and...had a clear view of alpacas, miniature horses, goats, llamas and more! The hosts provided recycling bins, a picnic table, firewood (the fire was already built for us - we just light the match), tiki torches filled with mosquito repellent (we didn't need them), water spigot, grill, our choice of grass or paved pad, lots of shade from massive trees, sink & flush toilet, a wooden deck, and even offered us smore's fixins and fresh eggs! Our hosts gave us a tour of the nature trail, the pastures, the barn, and introduced us to alpacas, a llama that seemed to always be watching me, mini goats, miniature horses, mini donkeys, their dogs, and cats. There were ducks, pigs, and chickens as well that seemed just as happy to ignore us watching them. This site is off the road by about 100 feet. The road was quiet and I didn't notice the traffic at all at night. We heard roosters, donkeys, and the occasional dog bark as we'd expect on a farm, it added to the charm of camping at an obviously loved farm. The hosts answered our messages almost immediately. They were also quite generous with their time, explaining about the animals, the farm, the surrounding area, and the multiple uses of the farm. We would definitely stay again-especially since they are so close to Turkey Run and Shades State Parks.
