We are a small vegetable, fruit and herb farm that has just been getting started over the past few years after relocating from farming in California. Our property is an old farm that historically was primarily used for pasture. We have several vegetable gardens, a berry patch and two small fruit orchards and a forest that campers are welcome to explore. There are about two acres of pasture, but no animals currently grazing, only the chickens that may or may not be within a fenced in area depending on the day and season. We are currently selling produce from our gardens and eggs from our free roaming chickens along with our kitchen products produced on farm in our licensed farm kitchen. Learn more about this land: Pitch your tent near the creek in our forest or hilltop with a view of surrounding farms or in a pasture where you will wake with the morning sun. We have various locations perfect for setting up your space for the night. We do often have two bookings a night on the weekends, it is a first come first pick option for the sites. However, with larger groups we may require to set up in the forest site near the creek or near the farm building might be another option for those who do not want to walk. We are a small diverse vegetable, herb and fruit farm so we welcome campers anywhere as long as they respect the boundries of the gardens and the orchards.  All sites may require walking a little from your car, but some cars are able to get a little closer to the sites(depending on the car & the weather).  We also have a small flock of egg laying hens that roams the property along with nine friendly barn cats and a friendly(but big) farm dog that you may see around the farm.  There are countless species of birds that can be seen around as well as colorful butterflies, moths and dragon flies regularly flying about.  Campers have access to a rustic bathroom(no hot water unless you boil it) and a partial kitchen as well as a charcoal grill, community fire pit and a picnic table.  If you would like to cook onsite we have minimal amount of cookware available to use and you can buy from the farm whatever seasonal produce and/or eggs you might need.   Our farm is down the road from wineries, breweries, a tea room and various other Frederick county attractions.  There are numerous historic sites within a short drive such as Harpers Ferry and Civil War battlefields, including Gettysburg and Antietam.  We are a 15 minute drive to historic downtown Frederick, 10 minutes from the center of historic New Market while being about an hour from downtown D.C. and 45 minutes to Baltimore.  Our central location is great for site seeing around the area during the day, then you can spend the evenings relaxing around the farm. * For small RVs we can accomodate you in some space near the farm buildings. **The hilltop has some flat areas, but there is also a good slope depending on where you set up, so it is really best for campers with only one tent.  This is next to a newly planted orchard, so there is also the option of some flat areas around the little fruit trees. Some cars are able to drive up the hill to park on the hiltop, depends on your car, but we are very strict about no driiving in the orchard.  ***Plenty of space for larger groups as well in the grove site in our forest, near the creek. If your group has more than 4 adults we may require that you use this space as it is most appropriate for larger groups. Some cars are able to drive up the hill to get a little closer, but be prepared to walk up from the parking space near the barns which takes 3-5 minutes or a two minute walk from the hilltop.Pitch your tent near the creek in our forest or hilltop with a view of surrounding farms or in a pasture where you will wake with the morning sun.  We have various locations perfect for setting up your space for the night.  We are a small diverse vegetable, herb and fruit farm just getting started.  We also have a small flock of egg laying hens that roams the property along with three friendly barn cats and two feral cats that will keep a distance.  There are countless species of birds that can be seen around the farm as well as colorful butterflies, moths and dragon flies regularly flying about.  Campers have access to a rustic bathroom(no hot water unless you boil it) and a partial kitchen as well as a charcoal grill, community fire pit and a picnic table.  If you would like to cook onsite we have minimal amount of cookware available to use and you can buy from the farm whatever seasonal produce and/or eggs you might need.   Our farm is down the road from wineries, breweries, a tea room and various other Frederick county attractions.  There are numerous historic sites within a short drive such as Harpers Ferry and Civil War battlefields, including Gettysburg and Antietam.  We are a 15 minute drive to historic downtown Frederick, 10 minutes from the center of historic New Market while being about an hour from downtown D.C. and 45 minutes to Baltimore.  Our central location is great for site seeing around the area during the day, then you can spend the evenings relaxing around the farm. *** After a tornado that hit the farm in May, we currently only have two sites available; one on the hilltop(picture of the hammock) and one larger site in the forest close to the creek is open, but the small site next to the creek is closed until we can clear more fallen trees.  Also, there is some space to set up near the farm buildings if that is preferred, but it is not private.  The hilltop has some flat areas, but there is also a good slope depending on where you set up.  This is next to a newly planted orchard, so there is also the option of some flat areas around the little fruit trees.  Plenty of space for larger groups as well, especially if you are willing to walk back into the woods.  On the hilltop there might not be enough flat space for more than 2 or 3 small tents unless setting up around the little trees in the new orchard.  Some cars are able to drive up the hill, but be prepared to walk up from the parking space near the barns which takes 3-5 minutes and it is about an 8- 10 minute walk to the larger site in the woods.

The hosts were very nice, and the land beautifully situated. I would only advise that if you have a large family with lots of gear, it might not be the best because of the hike into the site, including hilly terrain. I would also appreciate a picnic table at the site.

This was a lovely farmland site out in rural MD! Loved the privacy and little amenities (swing and fire pit.) lots of ticks when I was there (June) which is to be expected with high grass - prepare accordingly and spray yourself/clothes!

Best trip ever
The landscape is beautiful and there’s super cute kitties and chickens!! Wonderful array of wild birds and pleasing chirps. The provided wood is nice and dry and perfect for a warm campfire. The location is very private and open. Definitely would come here again!!

Cozy, good views, little pokey
So cozy! You can tell some things are a work in progress, overall as advertised. Hilltop site is the only one with car access, so if you are the type to use your car as storage or as your sleeping spot be aware of the following: big bramble bushes, limited flat surfaces!, narrow car path to spot. We were in a Subaru and were able to make it but if you're any wider it may be a problem. It's a short walk to the mobile home/bathhouse which has access to power to recharge your batteries. The mobile home is in repair, so it's not all functional, which was more than fine for us since we just needed a bathroom. Make sure to bring a saw and table as well. The farm cats were friendly and happy to give us a hello, the chickens as well! The hosts are so nice and available if we needed anything. So many fun things to do nearby as well.

Couple of cool sites here. The hilltop was a little short on flat space but we got a tent set up and hung a hammock between the tree and a Jeep. Got to meet some chickens, cats and the farm dog and had a good night's sleep. Zero issues with barking dogs mentioned in other reviews I should mention. The cookies and hot sauce were awesome!

catherine was an accommodating host, with daily clear communication even “can’t text driving” messages were sent. complications on her end lead to me shortening my stay - she canceled the booking to ensure a full refund & i rebooked for 1 night. the on cite facilities are very “rustic” as others have stated. the flush toilet (leaks) in a bathroom with a door that closes but does not lock. 1 gallon potable water was provided in jugs for me to boil - tho there are multiple fire pits on cite i would highly recommend bringing a camp stove & providing all your own cookware.
