This is a 3rd generation "Family Farm" of a different sort I suppose. Seems there's a bit of everything here, and arguably not enough of anything. At least for conventional farming. So we've learned to do things a bit differently. Our main crop is wine and juice grapes since our topography, climate, and soil type makes it a premier location for that. But with 30+ acres of forested hillsides, low ground, and natural areas we've evolved into a mixed farm and forest enterprise. Our goal is to utilize the productivity of all our property while still retaining the basic character and usefulness of the wild areas. Letting each thing be what it wants to be and does best on it's own. Flow, not force. So our year starts early with tapping maple trees and making maple syrup. Plus there's grape trimming about this time as well. When the forest floor starts to green up a bit later, we start digging Ramps, or Wild Leeks in the woods. Most of these will go to the more trendy Chicago restaurants, but we also have some local sales. Next comes inoculating winter-cut logs with Shiitake spawn for next years mushroom production. This year we also conducted a few hands-on workshop seminars on mushroom growing as well. Then it's on to our raised bed herb & veggie gardens. (Fresh herbs are just so much fun to cook with!) We grow enough for our own yearly use, as well as some for direct sales.  Summer keeps us busy tending all the different crops here and trying to keep up. But there's that steady progression of fresh veggies to eat. Yum !!!  Fall brings our annual Grape U-Pick in September and October. And we try to time related crops like mums, pumpkins, and gourds for this same time frame. Makes the place a bit more interesting. Late fall is when we bring in firewood to heat the house and workshop. Stacks of wood everywhere. Hopefully before the 1st snow.  In winter it's time to fire up the woodworking shop and be a bit creative. Build furniture, equipment maintenance, who knows what next years projects will include. I like to keep everybody guessing. So, that's what goes on here. You're welcome to check it out, lend a hand, relax back at camp, walk the vineyards and/or forest, or just breathe and relax. That's up to you. But I would recommend visiting a few of the fine local wineries. Seems there's a festival going on at one or another of them just about every weekend. Good music, good wine, good times. And there's the Lake Michigan beaches a few miles down the road. Yeah, this is a pretty casual place here, love meeting new people, very open to civil discussions of all sorts. However, rude, ill mannered people will probably enjoy staying elsewhere. Just say'n.

Camp #2 - The Terrace
The vineyard is beautiful, even the dead of winter! Campsites are well stocked with anything you may have forgotten, restrooms are clean, and there are things to do nearby + a trail near the campsite. John was awesome and helpful, i felt very safe there while still being in a private and quiet spot. Can't wait to return in the summertime

Amazing Experience!!!
I loved every second I spent camping here!!! Upon arrival, John met us in the driveway to give us the lay of the land and help us get situated, we really enjoyed chatting with him about a whole variety of interesting things. The camp site itself was PERFECTION, equipped with a gorgeous wooden camp kitchen, Adirondack chairs and side table, and the land around the site itself gently falls away on 3 sides, leaving you feeling like you’re on your own little slice of heaven (or at least, that’s how it felt to me). Can’t wait to come back again!!! Thank you, John!

The fine art of vineyard camping.
This was my third stay at John’s vineyard campsite. It never disappoints and I will return again. It’s peaceful, private and conveniently located amongst wine tasting rooms, antique shops, and u-pick farms. John is a warm and inviting host who is always open to good conversation. I can’t recommend this campsite enough!

Nice camp
Myself and two brothers had a nice time, land owner is very nice and camp 2 keeps you out of the wind. Plenty of room for at least 3 smaller tents or one big one and plenty of hammock trees. Would return.
