We are a small farm in Silicon Valley. We are basically a petting zoo and kid-friendly destination! You can stay in our "Flying Pig" cabin (sleeps up to 5), our new "Room with a view of a Ewe" (sleeps 3). We provide a continental breakfast for free or you can add on a hot breakfast. (Starting in July 2022, breakfast will be an add-on due to costs). Wake up to sheep and goats outside your door with a view of the pasture. Please read further for more information! ** To assure you of our cleanliness standards, I clean and air out the cabin, clean the restroom thoroughly, wash bedding and towels and sanitize every surface. The restroom (in the main house) is yours exclusively (morning and evening) when you stay here; I clean it every day, between every group or guest. One mile away is Harvey Bear County Park, with trails for bikes, horses or walking. We are 5 minutes from the Gilroy Outlets, yet a world away from the hustle and bustle! Come, relax and enjoy nature! **NOTE : we are exceptionally cautious with camp fires. If it is particularly hot and windy, there will be no fires. Summer 2022 wood-burning FIRE BAN in our county, so we now have a gas fire pit where you can create smores or just enjoy the campfire ambiance. We will make this a special day for you! Let us know if you are celebrating an event :-). Currently we only have one listing so you get VIP treatment! CHECK-IN is after 4:00pm and please give us a 30 min heads-up before your arrival. CHECK OUT is 10am, unless previous arrangements have been made. Please be as specific as you can regarding your arrival time (so I can make the temp in there as comfortable as possible, turn on lights as needed, etc.) ** We are a "Bed and Breakfast"; most days we have other day-guests and events here, so please respect the arrival and check-out times. If you stay 2 nights, please be aware that you most likely won't have the whole farm to yourselves during the day. When you arrive, please read the notes in the cabin so you are aware of what you can and can't do around the animals. This is an animal farm. If you love new animal experiences, this is the place for you! If you are scared of or allergic to cats or dogs, this might not be the place for you! If you can't handle new smells and sounds, this might not be the place for you. There is dirt, dust and various country critters. If you are adventurous and love animals and want a unique experience, come check us out! Restroom available in the main house (short walk from the cabin). Small fridge and microwave next to the restroom. There is no kitchen/oven/stove available. Gas Fire pit available ; there is no BBQ. NEW pricing regarding children (we love kids!): Price is $150 for first 3 people and it is $25 per person for additional people for the Flying Pig (up to 5 total). If you have extended family or friends, you can add on our "Room with a View of a Ewe" for $75. This fee covers 3 people. (Double bed and pull out couch twin-size bed). Another option is, you can pitch a tent for $50. "The Flying Pig" has a queen bed, bunk beds twin size, and a loft with a twin mattress, all bedding included. We serve a continental breakfast (free) or hot breakfast ($25/cabin) between 8-9am. (we can accommodate vegan and dairy free diets; let us know before you come). We provide bedding and towels. There is A/C and a plug-in heater in The Flying Pig. Please do not bring additional things to plug in except for chargers for phone/electronic devices.

Kim was a wonderful host! Her home is a toddler heaven. Our daughter can’t stop talking about it. We enjoyed our time, the cozy cabin, many farm animals and added touches.

We had the time of our life!! Our very first animal farm and glamping experience combined! Kim made my children very comfortable. It was a fully immersive experience for all of us. I highly recommend her farm, the flying Pig BnB!

First timers
We have never done camping before and wanted to start slow...not having to jump into a cabin in the middle of nowhere. So, we picked this spot and it turned out to be an amazing experience. Add to that the splendid hospitality by Kim and we already had a clear winner. But, this place doesn't stop there. It adds to this the meet-and-greet with the farm animals, hand feeding them, petting the rabbits, etc., and plenty of open space to run around with your kids. (P.S. includes a secret play area for kids behind a gate.) We paid for the full breakfast for 6 people, and Kim served us a very tasty and hot breakfast with a bottomless pitcher of coffee. This place would have scored a perfect 10, if not for the gap in the door of the main cabin that let a super cold draft inside leading to a very cold room. We had already blocked off the gap below the door and thought it was all done. So, we didn't really know why the room was so cold. It was almost early morning when I got up to investigate, found another gap on the side of the door (where the door touches the jamb), and blocked it off with my bag. If not for this one issue, I would have had a great night as much as a great time I had in the day. My score is a 9/10. Will visit again!

Perfect weekend getaway
We had an unbelievable visit, and we are already planning when we should return! Kim was the ultimate host and gave our kids such wonderful attention. She showed us all around the farm, and we had so much fun feeding the animals. So many adorable animals to visit with. We enjoyed our cozy warm cabin, which was super clean and had all the right necessities. The toys around the farm sparked so much imaginative play for my two young children. We had the best time, and we are so grateful! Can't wait to return.

This is our second time staying and again it was fabulous! My son kept asking me going back there but the place, of course, so popular and we were so happy to see opening at one of the days that we were looking into. Our stay at Flying Pig B'n'B in Mar 2022 was our first time experience staying at Hipcamp site and ever since, we stayed several of them throughout the year. By far both me and my son concluded that this place is THE our favorite. So clean, including bedding which smells so good!!! And no dust in the cabin, have all amenities, coffees, teas, and hot chocolate!, farm animals that we can pet and feed, and kids toys that free to play. It’s like a heaven to my son. Thanks again Kim for the wonderful host. Now my son is asking for 2 nights stay. We will be back.

Family camping trip.
Very impressed with all the activities for the kids and even the parents to enjoy. The animals were funny and cute to feed and pet. The beds were comfy and everyone slept like babies, didn’t even want to wake up and leave and Kim was understanding about a late check out as well. Over all great experience and planning to make it a yearly, family get away with family and friends from the San Jose area.

Our family of four (2 adults, 5.5 year old and 20 month old) stayed at The Flying Pig B'n'B for 2 nights. It was the first time staying on a farm and we all had a great time. Kim was pleasant, easy going, and made us feel comfortable. We ordered the S'mores kit, hot breakfast and dozen eggs. We stayed at the cabin which was small but comfortable. The bathroom was a short walk away and kept very clean. The kids loved feeding the animals and playing with the rabbits. Highly recommend for adults and kids alike!

Stay at the farm
Kim’s place was great! The cabin was so comfortable for us and our toddler. Such great living space and outer space to relax. Kim was so attentive, helped our kid get confortable with the animals and in the property and had everything we needed. The farm animals are gentle and are so used to people. I will recommend this place for anyone with kids! Will gladly be back

This was our second time at the Flying Pig BnB and we had just as much fun the second time as the first. Kim had made some lovely improvements to the cabin, such as replacing the pull out bed with a twin bunk bed, and upgrading the fire pit to a gas one. We love coming here and can't wait to return again soon.

Fun, Intimate 7YO Birthday Bash
This place is just plain magical. Kim, the host, goes the extra mile and provides the perfect touches to make any kid or adult feel special. This was our second time returning because my son (who is obsessed with chickens) was determined to celebrate his birthday there. I was worried no one would make the hour+ trek from SF to Gilroy, but I was able to get two moms and their kids to join us for a Friday night party. We left SF right after school got out, traffic was bleh. We slept as follows: MAIN CABIN- My son in the loft, my sister-in-law and her youngest on the full bed, my nephew and me in the bunk (I got the top, the bottom is very narrow, only for a kid). ROOM-WITH-AN-EWE CABIN- My friend and her daughter in the full, my daughter in the twin. My husband showed up after work just for the evening with In N Out burgers and Fries (its 10 min away) for everyone. I brought a cake and some snacks/drinks in a cooler. We had lots of glow-stick items to make it a real party when it got dark, which was super fun. Of course breakfast the next day is spectacular- definitely get this add on!!! EXTRA BONUS SUGGESTION- I booked three 10-11AM tickets on ResortPass for my kids and me for the next day to The Domain Hotel pool in Sunnyvale. It's about 40 minutes north back towards SF on our way home to make it in time for a 2PM soccer game. They were $15 each. What a perfect stop to beat the heat!

Cabin on a farm
We enjoyed spending my daughter’s second birthday on Kim’s farm. The doll houses and tractors were a hit for my daughter! We loved feeding the animals and getting to know them. The cabin was well-equipped and the bathroom was very clean. We can’t wait to go back! Breakfast, s’mores and eggs packages were well worth it.

Incredible for toddlers
A really special place. I brought my almost two year old son who had the time of his life. Kim went beyond above and beyond to make our stay amazing. She spent the morning feeding animals with my son, brought him a bunny to cuddle, picked grapes with him…He also loved jumping on the trampoline, playing in the many play houses, and riding around on the bikes. Truly a toddler paradise!

My favorite HipCamp property
This is our second time here as we came in January and decided we had to come back with the rest of or family. We had 9 people total and used both cabins and brought a trailer that some of us slept in. Rooms were clean, homey and even had games to play! The farm was the magical part, access to a playground, trampoline, petting and learning about animals. (If you’ve never held a chicken, it’s a must!) Kim was so accommodating and communicative with our booking and I can’t wait to go back again.

Kim was a kind and attentive host - she took great care of me and my 2 kids! She showed us around the farm, cooked us a delicious breakfast, and provided a very clean, comfortable and beautiful little cabin for us to stay. Despite being a rustic cabin, it had soft clean sheets, a coffee-maker, hot cocoa, and a gas firepit outside. My family loves animals so it was nice to be surrounded by them all weekend and learn more about them. There were also other fun activities for the kids, including bikes and trampoline. I would highly recommend staying here!!

Stars, s'mores and snores.
Our family (mom, dad and three girls 6.5, 5.5 and 3.5) had a fantastic stay at the Windsor Family Farm:Flying Pig BnB. I playfully named our mini vacation "Surf and Turf" as we spent both our days at the Monterey Aquarium and kayaking the Elkhorn Slough. Then returning to the farm with the kids for evening feedings and interactions with the sheep, goats, ducks, rabbits, chickens, dog, cats, alpacas, and Franklin the desert tortoise! We all slept well in the cabin and enjoyed the stars at night. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. San Martin was a perfect spot to retreat away from the crowded touristy streets of Monterey. I would highly recommend and hope to make it back again!

Fantastic hospitality & farm fun!
This was our first hip camp adventure, and definitely not the last. Our family of 6 loved staying here. Feeding the animals, holding bunnies, jumping on the trampoline, and eating wonderful homemade breakfasts are a few of our favorite memories. Kim was an amazing host, super sweet and kind. Her love for people and kids is clearly displayed in all the details around her home and property. Our kids loved the playground, and playhouses, bikes and trikes. Little things like the canvas painting of a pig in the hallway, string lights on the patio, and earplugs for the early rooster crows are things I appreciated. Not only was Kim a great host, but she taught us a lot about the animals and shared her love of animals and kids with us. We left feeling like family.

Toddler paradise!
This is a toddlers paradise. My 2 year old and her bestie loved feeding the sheep, goats and turtle! There is a great play yard with chickens running all over the place. Kim went out of her way to make us all comfortable, happy, and well fed. She even set out some water toys on a hot afternoon. We loved the area- strawberry picking, Gilroy Gardens, outlets all nearby.
