The farm is located in picturesque rolling hills of Maryland. We've had many requests for photo shoots and weddings... it's that amazing! The farmhouse used to be the local post office (many years ago). Mother Earth Organic Farm is the epitome of getting away. Camp with your tent, RV, schoolie, truck camper, or hammock tent on this marvelous organic farm with scenic pasture and mountain views. Bring your telescope or add ours as an extra. The night sky view is amazing! The Milky way is visible on clear nights. You may see farm animals including goats, chickens and cows during your stay. In addition, Mother Earth Organic Farm has a plethora of wildlife including hummingbirds, bald eagles, white egrets, turtles, bears, and foxes. There are walking trails on the farm and a 1/3 acre pond. The Appalachian Trail (AT) is about a mile down the road (access point with ample parking). There are many parks nearby including Gambrill State Park, Cunningham Falls State Park (longest cascading waterfall in Maryland) and many others.

Beautiful and quiet camp site!
Great campsite for a group of friends to camp for the weekend. There is tons of space for tents, and the space was lovely and very quiet. Would highly recommend. The farm fresh eggs were delicious, too.

Great view, great hosts!
I didn’t arrive till late and it was already dark but the hosts were able to leave me clear instructions on where my campsite is located and how to get there. The campsite was set up where you have wonderful views of the changing fall colors of the trees. You can see all the constellations, shooting stars and planets at night. Our campsite was clean and roomy. The hosts were amazing! Very good communication and even checked up on me to make sure I was ok. I lived my stay here and would love to come again.

Mehra's property is in a beautiful location and exactly what we needed for a fall weekend with our kids. Our campsite was near the back of their property and offered plenty of space and privacy. The nearby farm animals and cats were a big hit with the kids and there were lots of family-friendly activities nearby to fill the day. There is no cell coverage on the property, so we really appreciated their Wifi access up near the house for periodic check-ins. Look forward to returning soon!

Great campsite.
I loved tent camping here! It is very private and quiet. The fire pit was amazing. I usually always have at least one complaint about a campsite. But I don’t have anything bad to say about this one. I would definitely come back here. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

Lovely spot with lots of cool features, great for tent camping. The sun shower and compost toilet were both awesome to have. It was also nice to be in a field but along a tree line so we still had spots with shade during the afternoon. The surrounding area was really beautiful and scenic we did some driving around and visited the state park which were also nice.

Gorgeous views and vivacious goats made this a perfect starry overnight trip. Face ypur tent toward the pond fir an imcredible sunrise view. The provided amenities are great: clean table, safe fire ring, and not to be gross but....I have used many a compost toilet, this is the five star Hilton of latrines. Our hosts were kind and extremely helpful. The site is an easy drive that our prius could handle.

The coolest place we've stayed !!
We just spent a week at Mother's Earth Organic farm with our RV and were blown away with the site . It is privately situated large area behind the farm surrounded by trees . The field in the middle was filled with butterflies. We enjoyed everything about our stay . The outdoor bathroom , shower and fire pit area were just a few of the awesome amenities we enjoyed . So much to explore and enjoy . We enjoyed the fresh eggs and delicious bread (delivered right to the site) Conveniently located by a few parks with awesome rides. We have stayed at over 100 places with our RV all over the country and without a doubt this is our favorite... Can't wait to return.

Beautiful, large, comfortable site
Just perfect. We went with 6 adults, 1 toddler, and our dog, and everyone had an amazing time. The camping space is beautiful, large, immaculately maintained, and private. I was most worried about having enough shade on a hot June weekend, but we just followed the shade along the edge of the field as the sun moved, and we were fine. The composting toilet is both private and set up so you have an amazing view. We enjoyed watching the cows in the next field over, and we enjoyed the various berries growing around the camp. We met Mehra’s kind and welcoming husband at check-in, and we thoroughly enjoyed the farm box we purchased in advance. We were sad that we stayed for only one night. We will absolutely return for a longer stay.

Room to play
This is a great place to stay. The owners are friendly and helpful and they have created a really nice site. It is very large, big enough for kids to run around and play. Facilities are well kept. Fire ring is great. We were here with four smallish tents and two vehicles. Tons of fun outdoorsy things to do nearby.

Awesome telework location!
The hosts were amazingly helpful and provide a full 8 pages of information about the site, including a map, recommendations for hikes nearby and on the property, and food offerings such as fresh eggs, fresh brewed coffee, and homemade baked goods! You can tell they have put a lot of care into their Hipcamp sites and they are also extremely well maintained. We are excited to visit again soon! We stayed at the second site, which is closer up toward the house area. This is in direct line of site of the Wi-Fi extended installed on the barn. This was important for us as we are searching for a solid telework location. The original site is further away and behind a line of trees, which offers more privacy but no signal. We didn’t get the chance to check it out this visit thought the hosts did graciously invite us down for a campfire. •Cell signal: 0-1 bars LTE via T-mobile on iPhone 12/13 pro •Wi-Fi: 1-3 bars from 2.4G_Ext network (Forgot to speed test while we were there, but it seemed to work well enough for basic telework. Will have to visit again to test for zoom meetings)

Cold/rainy weather but warm hosts!
Our family loved staying at Mother Earth Organic Farm. We originally booked for a regular campsite and were prepared to brave the forecast of rain all weekend. Luckily, Mehra was looking out for us and offered to let us stay in her farm greenhouse instead--THANK GOODNESS because the rain and wind were much heavier than my partner and I anticipated. Mehra and her husband were so welcoming from booking all the way to after checkout. They even came out in the wee hours of the morning or late night in order to make sure the greenhouse siding was down so that the wind wouldn't buffet us too much without us saying anything. We also purchased the Farm Box which was full of amazing goodies like spring greens, beautiful farm fresh eggs from their free-roaming chickens, AMAZING pistachio cardamom cookies, and rosemary bread that I couldn't stop myself from devouring. We would love to come back and stay with Mehra again--hopefully on a less rainy weekend and actually experience their lovely campsite!

A great experience!
We had an amazing time at Mother Earth! The property was beautiful and the campsite was well stocked with plenty of firewood and water. One of the hosts (Adrian) even drove down with more wood for us when we ran out which was very kind and MUCH appreciated. We brought our dog and there was just enough space for him to run around without worrying about him wandering off. The picnic table and fire pit were really nice. The outhouse was clean. In the morning we saw some cows grazing in the field across the pond which was so cool. Overall an awesome experience and we will definitely be returning next year when it’s warmer!

Wonderful pastoral setting
We had a lovely stay @ Camping with Farm Pasture Views. Mehra and her family were wonderful hosts and made our stay very comfortable. They graciously provided us water each day and we definately jumped at the opportunity to purchase fresh organic baked goods made by Mehra that morning. We loved the pastoral setting and the property’s amenities.

Excellent spot! Great amenities!
My husband and I stayed 4 nights at this site and couldnt be happier! Theres a private shower set up, a very clean toilet setup, hand washing station, excellent firepit, and great secluded views. We came for dayhiking and we were not disappointed. 1.5 miles from AT trail parking and a 35 minute drive from Weaverton Cliffs. Very fast responses from our hosts when we had any questions. This is our first hipcamp experience and they set the bar very high! We will be coming back to this spot again!

My favorite Hipcamp
It was my second time visiting Mother Earth Organic Farm. The cleanness, maintenance of the ground, and the privacy in a w grassy area in the farm makes this place my favorite Hipcamp! I plan on going back again and again.

Gorgeous campsite and farmstay!
Our stay was honestly so great. Mehra and her family were fantastic hosts. The land was so beautiful and we felt welcome, safe, and relaxed. We got the farm fresh eggs and the telescope - both of which were so worth it. Our campsite was right next to some cute cows which was an added bonus. Would totally stay here again. Recommend 10/10

Mehra was a wonderful host, welcomed us as we arrived and gave clear instruction to the campsite. She even provided a helpful packet with a map of the farm and nearby attractions. The campsite was great! It was a large open field with a very nice fire pit, picnic table and nearby composting toilet. It was very private and relaxing. We would highly recommend!

Beautiful, large and private area
This was a beautiful, spacious site. Mehra (along with her family and several dozen chickens) greeted us upon arrival and provided information and instructions about the entire farm and the camp site. I would agree with other reviews that mention bringing a canopy for shade unless you don't plan to be at the site much during mid-day. Something to be prepared for - there is not a cooking grate for campfire cooking but there is a small charcoal grill available for use. Take advantage of the opportunity to use the solar shower, it's a unique experience!

Prívate, serene and beautiful!
We loved the farm and the campsite. The large campsite was clean, well-kept, and private. It has an outhouse with nature’s head compost toilet, tippy tap for washing hands, firewood, a fire pit and a couple of log stools, and drinking water in an igloo. They also provided us a solar shower and a picnic table. It was the best of both worlds; all of the amenities of a large campsite with the privacy of backcountry camping. We highly recommend this campsite. As other reviewers said, Mehra and her husband were so friendly and made us feel at home. Also, don’t forget to order the artisan bread she offers. It was so good that we wished we got one more to take home.

Idyllic spot 4 camping with the fam
We loved this camping location at Mother Earth Organic Farm! The air was clear, the site very pleasant, and views of the farm, the creek, and the pond next door were idyllic. Mehra and her husband are super kind hosts and go out of their way to ensure that site is in tip top shape. The composting toilet was very clean, solar shower spot in the trees worked well for a quick clean and was a fun set up. I think my husband's favorite part was the firewood we purchased on site (according to him he's never burned such good wood). He and my daughter enjoyed tending those fires for hours under the stars. ;) The animals on the farm are gorgeous. My daughter LOVED interacting with all the different kinds of chickens, the goats, and of course, the kittens! And to top it all off, we purchase some great organic veggies for the road!

Mehra’s campsite was exactly what we look forward to experiencing during a relaxing adventure outside! We even stayed an additional night to enjoy it — it was so serene. The meadow, trees, creek, clean toilet provisions, fire ring, birds, farm animals, creative wood stump seats, her organic items and baked goods and lovely family all created a wonderful time. We are planning another trip in the near future.

Mehra and her family were incredibly welcoming, including checking in on us during unexpectedly heavy rain. The farm was lovely and our group of 6 enjoyed the harvesting tour. I've already recommended the farm to others and we're hoping to come back soon.

This is a wonderful place to stay for peace, quiet, and space. You’ll be in a large field with paths mowed all around it, and bordered on all sides by trees, distant from the street. The campsite is very tidy. I definitely recommend the extras: we had delicious fresh baked bread, farm fresh eggs, and yummy cookies as well. Not only are they nice treats, but you can also save space by not having to pack a few meals if you take advantage of the offer. Mehra and the family were very easy to communicate with and super friendly. We’ll try to figure out how to come back this summer!

Camped at Mother Earth Organic Farm for the weekend with a group of 7 adults, 1 kiddo, and 2 dogs. The site was very nicely set up, tucked away behind a tree line in a meadow full of milkweed. At night the fireflies were spectacular. Birding right around the campsite was great too! There isn’t much shade, so probably worth it to bring a sunshade. The location of this hipcamp provides access to many great attractions in the area. We checked out Cunningham Falls (which was way too crowded), hiked the AT to Annapolis Rock (loved), had lunch in Shepherdstown WV, and went for a long swim in the Potomac. Mehra was an excellent host - very attentive and easy to reach. She and her husband clearly love their land and want to share it with others. Highly recommend.
