WELCOME, tent campers, RV campers and tiny house owners to WILD & FREE FARM! We provide warm hospitality, a beautiful camping environment and amenities to meet your logistical needs (bathroom access, a 30 amp and 50 amp hook-up and water hook-up). Our story..........We moved from an in-town Atlanta neighborhood to Chattahoochee Hills in 2019 in order to be closer to extended family and to immerse ourselves in nature. This leap-of-faith move has proven to be the most life-giving decision our family has ever made. We cherish this community: our rural neighbors of Chattahoochee Hills, our neighbors of Serenbe, as well as the community of wildlife that resides all around us. This is a land rich in natural and cultural history cared for by the Hearn family for generations prior. Some of the family members have generously shared their oral history with us. Come stay a while, and if you are interested, we will share those stories with you!
