Grand Army Farm

· Labadie, Franklin, Missouri
5 acres hosted by Rosalie T.
2 tent sites
Grand Army Farm is a family owned working farm. We raise beautiful angora goats for fiber and have chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys and meat goats. We serve local restaurants and participate in many local area farmers market. We pride ourselves in minimizing our carbon footprint, to the extent that we don't own any heavy piece of farm equipment, not even an ATV. The working portion of the game only accounts for 15 % of the land. What this means is that 85% of the wooded acres is available for you HipCampers to hike and explore. Of particular interest is the site of an old moonshine distillery hidden in the woods, a 20 min hike east of your campsite. Legends has it that the moonshine was illicitly produced during Prohibition and sold in the loft of our biggest barn where people would drink and dance the night away. The property boats of gorgeous mature oak trees, hickory trees and newer cedar stands where nature abounds. In the morning you may see the herons fly in or the Canadian geese come in. Learn more about this land: Pitch your own tent by our 5 acres lake. You will hear the frogs croak at night, see sights of blue herons or Canadian geese flying in, and hear our own geese and ducks greet you from across the lake. You will see my goat barn and see the majestic angora goats with shimmering coats come in for their feedings in the morning and leave to go to pasture afterwards. You will be a 10 min walk from our house and have complete privacy.  If you would like to make a fire, there is plenty of wood available to pick up on site.  A map on the patio fridge will show you where water is available and the hiking trail head.

Camping with my daughters
Rosalie was a great host. I went camping with my two older daughters - 6 and 8. We were very excited about camping on some actual farm land. Before we registered we asked about catch and release fishing on the lake that the campground resides on. Rosalie was more than happy to let us fish. We stayed at the camp site near where the ducks are housed as it was flat, plenty of room, and right on the lake. The sound of the farm was part of the experience and my girls loved the farm action that was taking place the entire time. After setting up camp we got some fire wood from Rosalie and she gave my girls some life lessons on living on a farm which was very educational. They even helped water some of the crops. Being on my own without my wife and youngest daughter I was worried about passing the time and keeping the girls entertained. Needless to say, with the educational experience, the great fishing, and the never ending farm action.. we didn’t cook dinner until late in the night and by then the girls were exhausted. We had a nice campfire at the end of the night, looked up at the stars that were not washed out by city lights and enjoyed the many sounds of nature. In the morning we got up, had another great fishing experience, cooked some breakfast, fished some more, and packed up to head back home. Before leaving we picked up a dozen chicken eggs that Rosalie sells on the farm. All in all I found this place to be one of the greatest hidden gems.

Camping with animals!
My husband and I had a great time staying lakeside at this farm. We are moving to the area in a few months and it was a convenient stay to explore the area and talking to the host was very helpful. It was fun to be surrounded by lots of animals: ducks, goats, dogs, and cats. They can be noisy but it really didn't bother us. It was calming to wake up and just watch to ducks swimming in the lake every morning. They also sell chicken and duck eggs. We didn't buy any this trip but since we are moving that way will definitely be back in the future for some!

What a great farm!
The hosts were very nice, and the farm was absolutely beautiful. My 4 year old daughter loved the animals and we loved the beautiful socks we bought. Our eggs are both beautiful and delicious.
