Hello and welcome to our property The New Nassau Food Forest! We are a permaculture and yogic homestead in its first year of growth and we are excited to welcome you. Among the pines and palms, you will begin to spot young fruit trees and other edible plants. Please note that this property is a work in progress and the satellite images do not reflect the current state of the project. Once you have booked, please follow the directions provided as your GPS will not bring you here.

About the property

Our property is home to a variety of birds and animals like hawks, eagles, owls, kites, turkeys, raccoons, bobcats, and snakes. Come enjoy some fresh air and the chance to see the beginnings of what we hope will one day provide food and peace to many.

While staying with us you can opt to take a guided food forest tour, as well as take the opportunity to help with or observe current projects going on at the farm. You can also enjoy swimming on-site. Offsite you can head nearby to enjoy swimming, walking, fishing, boating, live music, restaurants. We are only 10 minutes from Fellsmere and 20 minutes from Sebastian. There are plenty of parks and fishing spots nearby as well as the beach so there is always something to do within a 10-45 minute drive.

Your hosts live onsite and we will plan to greet campers and give a brief tour, as this is a growing food forest there may be areas that are sensitive to foot traffic. Our favorite things about this property are the amazing skies both at dawn and dusk, as well as night stargazing. We have great birdwatching as well. Please reach out at any time with questions or concerns.

Ross was a wonderful host! He met us at the gate and showed us to the spacious and level camp site. We then got a tour of all the new plantings, the land, and amenities if we needed them. Our site was peaceful and quiet, we took the dogs for a sunset walk and watched it set by the lake. Would love to see the progress and growth of the plantings in 3-5 years!

We absolutely loved our stay there. It’s everything you could want in a Hipcamp; it feels very remote yet your close enough to services and the beach! I hope I can make it back in a few years to see the progress on the food forest!!

Ross hasn’t updated the directions on here in a bit and has made a ton of improvements to his property so make sure to touch base with him about your arrival and where to park/meet him/setup camp. Gorgeous, peaceful place. We tent camped at the site next to the canal. Enjoyed the palms. Incredible star gazing, very dark sky the night we stayed. Ross is a warm and fascinating guy with an adorable pup. If you get a chance, it’s worth chatting with him about his goals for the food forest. He recommended a quiche spot nearby that we went to and highly recommend!

Ross gave a tour of his future food forest, it was really interesting. He has planted over 100 trees within a year, mostly indigenous plants and his dog is adorable, The project is worth supporting! The campsite is gravel parking with a mulch surround, not much shade. The irrigation stream behind the campsite has a lot of fish. We saw guar, a large turtle and lots of birds among other things. Follow Ross directions as google will take you to a large fruit farm. We had the whole site area to ourselves and it was very private and quiet.

This gorgeous little piece of Florida scrub is perfect for a little boondocking. The location feels tucked-away, but it’s only ten minutes off 95. There’s a little creek to take in, as well as Ross’s new little lake. The hosts were really helpful and friendly. We’re looking forward to going back.

Ross’s place is a magical experience and perfect for anyone looking for a quiet place in a remote area of Florida which is very uncommon to find. He is very accommodating and an overall genuine human. Highly recommend.
