We are a boutique farm in the heart of numerous land preserves and local farms. Since we're close to NYC we are surrounded by interesting galleries and restaurants to satisfy any palate or you can purchase our local products and make your own amazing dish under the wide open sky and twinkling stars.
Please be aware since the site is in a hayfield you should be tick aware. I do keep the site mowed.

Anne offers a nice pasture for camping in a very beautiful part of Connecticut. She was a super friendly host showing us the way back to the campsite and then giving us a tour of her farm. Our kids loved seeing all the animals! The location for camping was very private. The next morning I went for a ride on my gravel bike. The local trails and roads around here couldn’t be better! It was an awesome place to ride a bike and extremely picturesque! There are great hiking trails and there’s also a few local restaurants as well.
Overall, you couldn’t ask for a better rural getaway!
Bucolic small farm camping
Absolutely beautiful spot. A gracious and knowledgeable host. Clean Porto potty. Horses. Ducks. Wildlife. Quiet. Solitude. Plenty of space and easy to traverse drive into the bucolic camping spot which is located in the back field.
Lots of hiking nearby. And the drive to get there through the backwoods of Connecticut is gorgeous.
Fresh eggs and produce!
We’ll be back! Thanks Anne for a great stay!
Excellent first HipCamp experience! Anne was so communicative and accomadating to my last minute request. It was a hot summer day but I awoke to ample shade beneath the beautiful tree in the field. The spot is flat for camping, tucked away for privacy, and resplendent with bullfrogs and nighttime insects to lull you to sleep, then birdsong and peaceful morning vibes. Thanks for hosting me!
Beautiful small working farm. Campsite is set back in a private area in their back field (visible back to farmhouse, but probably 500ft away). Anne was an awesome host, helpful and attentive. Provided tons of great recommendations for hiking and exploring the area. Good spot for sure.
We had a great time! great spot!
Anne and Scott are awesome hosts! Our trip was arranged extremely last minute and they went above and beyond for our stay!
This a a fantastic camp site and highly recommended. The spot is on the opposite end of a large expansive field but felt very private. We have a rooftop Jeep tent and drove right up to the spot.
Across the street is a amazing public hiking trail right along a nicely flowing stream! On the property is a even nicer and more private section!
We saw, a eagle, an owl flying around at night! (the best), shooting stars, nice horses, ducks, an amazing vegetable garden, cows, etc. Something to see at every turn.
Anne and Scott acquired a new fire pit that same day and we kept it blazing all night! That thing was huge!
This site is stunning and we had a perfect evening at Anne’s place. The back meadow felt really private and the views in all directions were gorgeous. Bonus is that there is also a ton to do in the area! I’ll definitely be back.
It was picturesque with all the barns, and Anne and Scott were extremely welcoming and made themselves very available. Our kids loved sleeping near the horses, and helping to harvest duck eggs. And we were very pleased to find a beautiful hiking trail directly across the street! It felt like we were in the deep country yet we were close to restaurants and several small towns. We definitely wanna come back to the area to check out more of what it has to offer.
The campsite was behind a huge oak tree pretty far from the main house, so we felt like we could make noise without disturbing anyone. The main road, which you cannot see has some traffic on it that you can hear a bit later than we would’ve liked, but we still all sleep great.
We wished we hadn’t come in so kate so that we could’ve taken advantage of the fire pit, hommock, game room etc.
Anne was a terrific host. The property is beautiful and it’s so fun to watch the animals. The game room is great for the kids, especially in the rain. Surrounding area has a a lot to offer. Would definitely stay again!
Had a wonderful time! Anne and Scott are perfect hosts, always available, helpful and a pleasure to talk to. The farm is in a great location- close to hiking, biking, swimming, breweries, distilleries and restaurants. There
was no shortage of things to do. Looking forward to going back!
