My dad bought the farm in 1975 and it used to be a working dairy and sheep farm. My dad passed away while cutting our oat field on mothers day 2003, our little farm started to break down. We have recently been working on it to bring it back to life and hope to have it up and running strong again soon. Hopefully have a produce stand or garden soon to offer more options for our guests. Learn more about this land: Our farm is 3miles west of town within 10 miles to lake for fishing, boating, hiking, and even disk golf. Right off of I-5 by a Pilot travel center. Public pool 3miles(1pm-5pm, water arobics Tue and Thur 6-7pm $2, family night Tue and Thur 730-9pm June-Aug) as well as shopping and dining within 3miles. Great sunset and area to roam for a bike ride or walk in the country in our little hick town with only about 8000 population. It is very likely you will hear animals so if your a light sleeper you may want ear plugs. Chickens crow, cows bellow, and dogs bark. Driveway is rough and we are working on getting it fixed asap so please take your time coming up. There is FIELD roaches you may see soon after we irrigate, they are bigger then the nasty cockroach but harmless. The wind can be up to 30mph at times so be prepared with extra rope to tie down and secure if your in a tent also park vehicle to help block from wind and driveway. It does get up into the 100° here during summer so it would be good to have shade or plan to keep cool during the hottest parts of the day. Longer stays are best done at sites 4 and 3 further from the driveway. Quick stops just to sleep are best at 1 and 2.

Last minute perfection
booked same day, best decision! My toddler loved the dogs, there was a small pool that was available and perfect for my kid. host came out and talkes to us for a bit. She was really nice, the spaces are open and kinda close but still enough room to set up camp, and play. Enjoyed falling asleep to the sounds of a farm. We will be coming back!

Wonderful quiet little spot. We enjoyed a quick trip to Black Butte Lake for dinner and a swim, then a nice sunset at the farm. Kristy and her dogs were welcoming hosts!

Kristy and her two canine companions were excellent hosts. They provided a good spot for my son & I establish camp for one night with our tents. Having potable hose water was a nice plus. Beautiful sunset & sunrise with all the traditional farm animals in the open surrounding was enjoyable. No issues whatsoever.

I was traveling from Eugene Or to San Diego area and wanted something close to I-5 about halfway and this lovely farm was perfect! I booked last minute and Kristy was very kind. I had to reach out to her at 10pm because I couldn’t find my turn ( directionally challenged) and she was super nice about it and very helpful. The farm is lovely, the animals are clearly well taken care of and happy. Plus they have the cutest dogs that were there to greet me. They are both super friendly. I would definitely recommend. It was close to I-5 if you are traveling but not so close that you hear road noise. Felt private and safe and as a solo female traveler I really appreciated that. Thank you again Kristy and family.

Above and beyond.
Very gracious and accommodating. Approachable people that really seem to care about your needs. Even gave my friend a ride when she ran out of gas. That’s above and beyond. Pete-
