We are a community supported agriculture farm that uses a blend of modern technology with organic farming practices to feed over 140 families fresh vegetables and herbs. We offer camping space with electricity and bathroom facilities available. Your children will love our two friendly, playful Australian sheepdogs May and Lily. 4 Camp sites are set at the back of the property under oak trees. Bathroom and cooking amenities are less then 2 minutes from sites. You are just 5 miles from grocery stores and shopping, but we have the feel of being in the country. Beaches, State Parks with springs and all the central Florida attractions are within an hour drive or less. You are free to roam the fields and select vegetables and herbs to prepare in your meals or you can take a stroll in beautiful downtown DeLand (recently voted best downtown in America) and take in a nice meal.

A few things to note.

1. Cumber site is large enough for tent camping only.

2.  We allow only one vehicle per campsite but there is additional parking at the front of the property about 250 feet from the sites.

3. No open fires are permitted at the campsite due to the proximity of the greenhouses.  We do have a screened in fire pit that is free to use.

4. If at all possible, please no check-ins after 11 p.m.  This is a working farm, and we have to get up early.  If you absolutely cannot get here by then let us know in advance and we will work with you.

John and Pat were wonderful hosts. The three campsites are perfect for tent, pop-up or small van. John took the time to walk us through the hydroponic garden. The shower and restroom facilities are in a covered area outdoors. They were extremely clean. traffic noise from the nearby road is a little loud during the day but quiets down at night. There is a great outdoor bar area with a propane grill. We really enjoyed socializing there with friends and fellow campers. I highly recommend camping on the farm!

We definitely want to come back and check out John's land our next road trip thru Florida, it actually looks pretty neat to take advantage of as we never did this type of camping before. Unfortunately we didn't have time to see all that John's land had to offer as we were between another priority and heading back north. We arrived after dark and yet, John the good host, met us and oriented us to the campsite and amenities. John offered to show us the entire place the following morning, but we were moving on early. It is a very quiet and relaxing place to camp, nicely treed and shaded.
There was a very extensive and large hydroponix vegetable greenhouse and garden and what appeared to be a relatively large farm to walk around on. For such a reasonable price it had a nice outdoor kitchen to cook meals on set off by itself, an outdoor shower & bath, by his ?barn? and electric hookup at the camping site itself. If we read the website correctly our recollection was it offered the opportunity to even pick some vegetables to cook with our meals in the kitchen?

Very nice place to camp. It’s an actual working vegetable farm with harvesting taking place certain days during the morning and daytime. Only a couple of camping spots and camping neighbors are close so you will get to see them quite often. We met some very nice campers and shared meals with them. Loved that there were electric connections available and there was a toilet and a shower in walking distance. The farm is located on a main road, so at night you will here lots of cars going by and some roosters in the morning. We were able to bring our dog which was great and there was a great dog park and trails nearby. We enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I really enjoyed tent camping at John’s farm camp. We had just enough interaction with our hosts so that we felt both comfortable in asking if we needed anything and also had privacy to relax and do our own thing. John gave us a tour of their beautiful farm operation, which had mostly vegetables when we went. Both John and his wife talked with us and checked in on us during our stay when we were out around the camp.

We brought our dog and she enjoyed meeting their two dogs May and Lily.

There was a really nice outdoor grill/patio area where we cooked our meal the first night. The shower and bathroom facilities are both clean and comfortable, large and not cramped at all.

Our tent site had electricity and a hose nearby and we were able to park our compact car next to the tent site.

We really enjoyed John’s place. The one thing I would let people know is that this place is very close to the highway and there was a lot of traffic noise, as well as the neighbor has a rooster that crows from about 4am-7:30am, so we ended up purchasing earplugs and those helped.

Other than that, it was very convenient and comfortable. We highly recommend camping here if you have the opportunity.

Daytime view of tent site, Kale. Extension cord from tent to electrical box.Daytime view of tent site, KaleLovely, well lit, and charming patio/grill area for cooking and relaxing.Nearby cabin that campers can also rent. They left the light on outside of this which helped light the walk from the tent site to the bathroom/shower area.

My friend and I had a great time staying here! Site had access to electricity and water, bathroom and shower close by, a little outdoor kitchen/bar area, and view of the farm. Our dogs loved to roam around and play with the hosts dogs. Very close to restaurants and nightlife in DeLand. Definitely check out their shop- great spices, dips, honey, etc.
