We saw the need to be a part of the local food movement by purchasing land and bringing the land back to a state that was better than how we found it via permaculture practices. The land consists of: 9acres of forest, pastures, two ponds, orchards, hoop house, tropical greenhouse, relocated English threshing barn from 1850, market gardens, chickens,guineas, goats ( 2018), bees, stocked pond, extensive fencing, walk-in cooler, cellar, permaculture design layout, on site farm market on Sundays 11-6. Learn more about this land: Can host a few camp sites, three , one would be secluded close to pond. No formal trails. There is one electric hookup 220v, hydrant for potable water.    Rural area, farming area, great road to ride bikes on. Seven miles to Indiana University and vibrant downtown area, many ethnic restaurants, art, theatre.

Beautiful Permaculture Farm
Juan and Robert are wonderful hosts and their farm is beautifully maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet them, their friendly team of helpers, the animals, and the land. Juan had many great recommendations for places to check out in the area during our visit. We stayed in site #2 (next to the red barn) for three nights at the beginning of September and enjoyed all of it. It was private and peaceful, but still close enough to town that we could easily visit and explore the area. We loved listening to the symphony of the cicadas and frogs at this time of year, as well as the roosters, chickens, guineafowl, and ducks. The outdoor shower is very nice and the composting toilet is clean and easy to use. We would love to visit again. Highly recommended.

Awesome outdoor hot shower!
Juan’s Sobre Mesa is a very beautiful organic farm. Staying there was a fantastic experience as we enjoyed the beauty of the land, the peacefulness and the lovely hosts. We had a wonderful night’s rest and left with a bushel full of produce from their farmers market stand.

Great Hosts. Distance was correctly stated but traveling time on small back roads does add more driving time. All information posted by the hosts is correctly stated.

The tent camping location was simple - a spot on the grass. The hosts were very friendly and it was very interesting to see the farm in operation. Not too far from town and quiet.

Beautiful place!
We enjoyed camping at Sobremesa farm very much. Juan and Robert are excellent hosts. The place is beautiful, and the toilet is well maintined and clean (there is even a station for hand washing). It is very close to downtown bloomington (and the road to get there is extremely scenic). It was amazing to wake up in the morning to a beautiful sunrise with the roosters singing in the background.

Unique stay on a working farm
I really enjoyed my stay at the farm. Several things to note for prospective campers—none of which were a problem for me: (1) The campsite is a small grassy area right off the side of the gravel driveway. You will hear cars coming and going, albeit infrequently, right outside your tent, (2) there is some road noise that continues into the night, (3) you will sleep right next to a rooster who gets going in the early morning hours, and (4) camp fires aren't available for tent campers. Most of these issues are easily solved with a pair of earplugs. The farm is a very beautiful and interesting place, with animals and a variety of crops. I thoroughly enjoyed walking around the property in the evenings. Juan greeted me when I arrived and showed me around. Overall, I had a positive experience staying the farm and would happily stay there again.
