Dancing the Land Farm is a small, organic farm in Central Minnesota. Owned and operated by Liz and Curtis, and their little daughter Lulu, the farm raises veggies, flowers, medicinal herbs, goats for milk and fiber, sheep, and pigs, as well as lots of chickens, ducks, quail, guineas, and a pair of peacocks. We also have two friendly farm dogs who both believe you all come here just to give them belly rubs. The land is dotted with rolling glacial moraine hills surrounded by marshes. Sandhill Cranes, herons, swans, geese, ducks and all other kind of water loving critters are common sights here. Even otters and beaver have been seen! Eagles are everywhere these days, harriers, and hawks of all kinds. A birders dream! Spring/early summer is baby goat and lamb season, so come prepared for antics and adorableness! From midsummer to frost the gardens and flower fields really start to explode with color and fragrance, and bushels of farm fresh produce. Be sure to book a tour! In the fall the aspens around the farm start shimmering golden, while the oaks deepen to rich, flame-hearted earth tones. Opening early summer of 2022, the Dancing the Land Farm Store will be stocked with all manner of delicious produce, pastured pork (bacon over the campfire!), goat, lamb, eggs, flowers, and dry goods, along with yarn and fiber arts for campers to shop at their leisure. A luxurious glamp PLUS delicious, organically grown food? Yes, please!

Easy camping getaway with goats!
We loved our time at Liz & Curtis’ place! We were warmly greeted and showed our campsite along with useful tips utilizing the space. The tent was spacious and had wonderful touches that made it comfortable. Our toddler had so much fun playing within the tent. Having the cooking area, plates & utensils, and camp chairs removed the stress of having to pack and setup those things. A nice plus was having the 24 hr access general store and getting to meet the lovely goats! We would definitely recommend their place!

Glamping on a Farm
Our family had a great time staying in Liz and Curtis’ tent. It was a nice get away from the city. The kids enjoyed the farm dogs and the Farm Tour. Liz and Curtis were great hosts and so helpful with any questions we had.

A lovely glamping experience! The surrounding nature was gorgeous and the tent/kitchen/firepit very well thought out. We spent a night with our 3 month old and 3 year old and had a blast!

I loved the glamping experience here. This was our first time to try a glamping, but it was more comfortable than expected. Everything is equipped and also Liz and Courtis were very kind and responsive. I highly recommend this place.

Glamping on a farm
So cozy and peaceful. Spacious yurt style tent with the most comfortable bed ever . Also a fire pit and a little tent with a stove and picnic table. I booked this to get out of the city and sometimes it’s nice to not have to bring any gear but reap the benefits of off the grid nature time . This was perfect.

Beautiful farm, basic amenities
Beautiful site on a lovely farm. Hosts very accommodating of late night arrival. I would have been grateful for more specific description of amenities in site summary on Hipcamp. There was a port-o-potty and a hose tap for “toilet” and “potable water”. There were also empty beer bottles on table at entrance to two tent sites. Sometimes, all of this fits in to a perfect trip, for us this time and on this trip, we may have made a different choice.

Book this tent! You won’t be disappointed. We got into town WAY later than expected and Curtis still met us with a smile. The hospitality was just as warm as the blankets in the tent. The night got chilly but we stayed perfectly warm the entire time. The land is stunning and animals galore! Such a perfect pit stop on our road trip.

If it hadn’t rained I think we would have had a good time. But unfortunately the tent leaked in a thunderstorm and we got pretty wet- it wasn’t waterproof. The canvas also had some mold. The setting is very pretty tho!

So Good!
We loved our time at Dancing the Land! Communication with Curtis was great. The tent was magical, beautifully decorated and so much room, peaceful and relaxing. The cooking tent had all the practical things we needed, and more. A flush toilet a few minutes away was a really nice surprise! Sounds of chickens and roosters are to be expected at a working farm and didn't stop us from sleeping in at all. The stars were amazing, we enjoyed our fire in the evening and morning! Thanks for a beautiful get away we won't forget. Ten out of five stars!

Beautiful farm and campsite!
We had an amazing time! Our campsite was next to the farm and it was so cool to see all the veggies growing! The goats were also very cute. Liz and Curtis also brought us some paper and sticks to help us with our fire which was very sweet. They also recommended some great hiking spots at St. John’s. We loved it and would definetly recommend!

A Lovely Glamping Experience
Our stay at Liz and Curtis's farm was great! The tent was spacious and comfortable with all the comforts needed for a nice night away, but still enjoying the peace and quiet of nature. A fire pit and chairs for a camp fire, a propane cooktop and plenty of dishes/utensils available in the separate screen tent. Liz and Curtis also run a farm store and publishing company where you can stock up on farm fresh produce, eggs and meat, as well as a large variety of books by local authors. I would gladly stay here again and look forward to doing so in the future! Fair warning, the roosters do make a fair amount of noise, but nothing unexpected when staying on a working farm (bring ear plugs if you think you'll be bothered). But we also heard what we figured were coyotes late in the evening, which was a fun experience for us "city folks." The farm is in a rural area, so cell reception is spotty (again, to be expected).

We had a wonderful night at Liz and Curtis’s farm! The campsite was perfect; we were surrounded by beautiful flower and vegetable gardens in the fields and we fell asleep listening to the loons. It was so peaceful and a great spot to watch the sunset and sunrise. Liz and Curtis were both very helpful and super nice. I’d highly recommend staying here if you’re traveling through!

Peaceful escape
This experience was incredible for my boyfriend and I. Having a busy summer working in Minneapolis lead to a very needed escape from the buzz and this was exactly what we needed! A night of pure silence outside of beautiful sounds of nature, in a beautifully decorated tent, reading poetry and enjoying time disconnected from our phones.

Disappointing experience.
Arrived in my 23-foot class B, with Curtis (I assume) saying they aren't set up for a vehicle, but he would show me where I could park it. Led me up the road to a field where there were veggies and flowers and put us in the mowed driveway. Showed us a hose and a portapotty and said he'd check on us in the morning. Overnight dozens of goats and sheep visited, having escaped their pasture further up the road. We saw no other animals, nor did we see a gift shop or meet Elizabeth. In the morning I walked among the plantings and then he came and gave me a tour of what I'd just seen. Then we left. That was it. I don't recommend buying the $15 tour and I don't recommend the dispersed camping there. Maybe it's nicer if you stay in their tent, according to the other reviews.

Liz is awesome and super welcoming. Answered all our questions before and during our stay. Tent/yurt is decorated so cool and def felt like glamping inside! Loved hearing all the farm animals versus a typical campground where you hear loud camping neighbors or generators from RVs (but like others have said, if that’s not for you, just bring earplugs). New little shop to buy books, yarn, meat, eggs, and more. Fun last minute overnight close to the cities to just hop on the motorcycle without having to pack anything! Thanks Liz!

This was our first glamping experience as a family with our two toddlers. We was also an opportunity to visit the Quarry for a swim and Lake Maria, both close by. We appreciated the convenience of the spacious and clean tent, and getting to see and learn about sustainable farming practices. The covered kitchen area had all basics for a meal, and my boys loved their breakfast with bacon and fresh eggs from the farm! Thank you Liz and Curtis for sharing your land and nurturing our soils and souls.

Peace, quiet, perfect.
This was such an incredible experience. What a great time to reconnect as a family. I hadn't realized how much I needed it and hadn't felt myself for a while until I was out there. We just unplugged for a few days and were truly WITH each other. Our 20 month old really came alive the second we got there, and she still talks about going back to our "tent house". I can't recommend this place enough and will definately be back. Thank you so much, Liz and Curtis. I didn't know how much I needed it. Also...ya'll. Try their eggs and/or meat. Good lord.

Quick little Glamping Trip
Liz and Curtis provided us with the perfect last minute get away. My four year and I had a perfect one night glamping experience. She loved running up and down the trail to camp and visiting her friends the chickens. I loved all the amazing birds and flowers and goats! We can’t wait to come back for another night on the farm.

The tent experience was so nice!! It was very comfortable and felt clean. Sadly it was so buggy out that anytime out of the tent we would get a bite for sure haha but we made it just fine. I would recommend.
