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!

Beautiful in Every Way!
Liz and Curtis’ property is a must see. The tent is large, private, and decorated beautifully. There is very little you need to bring with you besides food and clothing. They supply the rest - firewood (for a very reasonable cost), drinking water, chairs, and cookware. They also have a small shop where you can obtain other food and gorgeous items from their farm. Interacting with the animals and hearing their chatter throughout the day is an additional perk.

Beautiful set-up, needs some TLC
Our experience at Pony Hill Glamp was ... challenging. Much of that was not the fault of the owners, though there were some basic things they could have done to make the situation better but did not. I planned our trip long in advance because we have a toddler and don't have a lot of free 3-day weekends in the summer. Unfortunately, this meant that the weather was miserably hot. I called a few days before our trip to see how ventilated the tent was and was reassured that it was well ventilated. This turned out not to be true. We couldn't comfortably hang out in the tent, even late in the evening. The problem with that was, first, our 2 year old goes to bed really early and doesn't understand why it's so hot. Second, my wife reacts severely to mosquito bites, so sitting around outside at dusk wasn't great. I had thought the big tent and the kitchen tent would make camping with these issues easier, but it just didn't work out. (The kitchen tent was a great set-up, though it was in need of repair so did not keep the bugs out much.) Then there was the farm tour. I love what they are doing with the land and admire all of the work they've put into it. I really would have liked to see more of it. We mostly stood around watching Curtis milk goats. He is a fascinating person, so this wasn't unpleasant, but again, not great for a squirmy toddler who was promised pigs and chickens. Basically, the whole experience was fine, it just wasn't what we had hoped for or anticipated.

Do not stay here!
I was extremely disappointed with Pony Hill. The hosts were kind enough to let us change our reservation, but after that it went down hill fast! Our first impression was not good: the buildings and surrounding grounds were covered in junk! The “farm store” which we were told had fresh eggs, vegetables and other things available (the cooler was almost empty) was also full of junk. And the bathroom was disgusting! My daughter and I chose not to brush our teeth that night because it was so gross. The host showed us to the glamping tent, (which did sit next to a pretty meadow) and said that the main screen door zipper was broken. Another window screen was broken, which made it pretty stuffy inside. When we asked about the fire pit, the host said “ya, we didn’t post it on the site, but there’s a fire ban,” which I understand, but letting us know would have been nice. He then told us that they had to cancel our farm animal outing because he was going to a farmer’s market. (I still haven’t been reimbursed.) My daughter had really been looking forward to it. I cannot recommend this place at all!! This is the only negative review I’ve left for any airbnb/Vrbo as every other one we have stayed in pays attention to detail and cleanliness. It was (obviously) a very disappointing stay!

One of a kind!
This was such a fun and unique stay! The yurt is in a relatively private area. The kitchen tent had just the right amount of basics to use. The yurt was decorated beautifully but the screen door wasn’t able to zip because a previous guest had broken it. Because of that, bugs had definitely gotten into the tent but they were mostly at the top. The bed was very clean. The owners were very helpful in helping us navigate the market which had lots of fun things. Overall it was a really pleasant stay and we’d definitely go again!

Thank you Liz and Curtis for your hospitality. We had a very pleasant and memorable time staying with you. This was such a nice break in the middle of our road trip. The site was clean and nicely set up. The tent was so nice that it was easy to forget you were out in nature. The sounds of the farm and the calls of the peacocks made for a very enchanting time. Thank you, we will be back again
