We had the most wonderful stay at the Food Forest Tent Site. We stayed late in the season, but still decided to add on garden fruits and veggies, and let me tell you, it was so worth it. Anna's food forest had all the makings for a fresh, beautiful salad; we were obsessed with the raspberries, too!
This was a great place to disconnect and to explore. (Be on the look out for the resident farm cat, she is so affectionate!) And it was so nice getting to know Anna, who was such a warm host. We will certainly be back again!

Great stay! I really loved staying at your place. You have a very nice setup with bathroom/shower/kitchen access. Plus I love the animals, the plants and the quiet. Thanx!

Wow, this was an incredible place to camp! Quiet, peaceful, and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Being able to take a hot shower was a huge plus! Anna is a an amazing host, and I really enjoyed talking with her about her farm and the folk school. Highly, highly recommended; I loved staying here!

Anna & Dave have a beautiful farm in the rolling hill country of SE Iowa. What a gift that they share it with travelers. Beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. Farm cat, chickens, sheep and cows kept us company. Not too far from interstate 80 but far enough so no highway sounds. We slept peacefully. Will definitely visit again.

This was our second stay on the beautiful farm. Every time we visit, it makes me want to drop everything and move to the countryside. The abundant garden, the affectionate cat, the atmosphere... it is all perfect! This place is absolutely worth the stay.

Beautiful space!
My husband and I stayed a night here on our way from Omaha NE to Chicago.
Warm and welcoming host. Beautiful yard and garden. Sweet cat. Funny goats. Great kitchen space to cook in. And I am not sure if this happens every evening, but if you’re lucky you might hear a beautiful trumpet and a lovely voice singing out over the fields as if to offer thanks and give a send off to the setting sun.
Quite magical when paired with the flickering lights of fireflies dancing through dusk and into the night.
I had no idea Iowa was capable of such beauty.
Would definitely stay there again!

Perfect for our one night stay as a stop along a road trip. The bathroom/kitchen area was very convenient and the tent site was quiet and peaceful — plus there were some cute sheep! Anna was a friendly and accommodating host, and met us just as we pulled up to the door.

The Food Farm is a special place, we are so glad we had a chance to camp here on our way through Iowa. The tent site is in a grassy yard next to a newer building with restrooms and kitchen. The host, Anna, was super friendly and made us feel right at home.
