Come stay at our little sustainable farmstead amid the beautiful rolling hills of southern Ohio!  Our peaceful 15 acres has a good mix of woods, wild meadows and maintained cleared areas as well as a small pond; all of which can be explored via our nature trail.  Enjoy the sounds of nature and an incredible night sky.  Farm fresh eggs and fresh produce are available for purchase during the growing season and firewood is available all year round.  There is also a wonderful sauna on the property that can be reserved.      Great hiking, kayaking, biking, birding, fishing, swimming, and disc-golfing opportunities just a few miles away at Paint Creek State Park and the Highland Nature Sanctuary.  Amish country is also just 15 minutes away with a great bakery, markets and greenhouses.  This area is also home to an impressive network of ancient earthworks including the world famous Serpent Mound.   Our accommodations range from primitive tent-camping to "glamping" in either a furnished bell tent or tiny cabin.  The sites are spaced out for privacy and each site offers a private picnic table and fire pit.  Glamping sites have outdoor kitchens.  There are two shared privies/outhouses which have basic composting toilets.  A grassy parking area is provided near the road, however, all sites are walk-in only.   Greenfield (5 miles north) is the nearest town and has two grocery stores, restaurants, a bar, hardware, gas, etc.  Bainbridge (7 miles south) has gas, hardware, a couple of restaurants, dollar store, amish businesses, etc.

Little peace of heaven
This is a wonderful hip camp. I have gone twice and plan to go again. The property is beautiful and so well cared for. We stayed at the Sugar shack this time - it was wonderful! So cozy and tucked into the woods- it is so quiet and peaceful. We had everything we needed to make it a wonderful weekend. Aimee - the host-is wonderful and so accommodating. Highly recommend Fruitdale Farm!

Sugar Shack Cabin
Warm and snug
The Sugar Shack is perfect! The land is beautiful. The shack is beautiful, warm, and well insulated. Aimee has thought of so many small touches that make it easy to stay there. The loft is super comfy. The host is fantastic! I highly recommend the Sugar Shack for a solo retreat or a cozy romantic getaway.

Sugar Shack Cabin
I loved the little cabin that I stayed in!! It was nice and cozy and perfect for my little getaway! It felt like it had most things I needed in their as far as appliances or little things. Very quiet and peaceful which was nice. I think I saw more stars there than almost anywhere else I’ve been and it was gorgeous! A great place to enjoy God’s creation with plenty of nearby parks and trails to check out! Also be sure to check out Amish country nearby as they have some really good stuff there! Apple fritter was amazing and I think that was my first time having one but it was amazing!

The Sugar Shack is one of the most delightful and wonderful cabins we’ve ever stayed in. With all the amenities of home and so much more, Aimee was incredible and I couldn’t recommend this cabin any more highly.

Sugar Shack Cabin
Amazing property
This place is a dream!! Beautiful property with fairy trails. The cabin is set back in the woods, over a creek with bridges. So artistic and adorable. Everything was thought of for cabin needs. Tools and amenities just kept surprising us. Amiee even had the wood stove ready to light and eggs for us in the cooler! The bed was super comfortable and we figured out the stove so it wasnt crazy hot in bed the second night. Bring extra lights and towels along with all your normal camping needs. Can't wait to go back! #kentuckyhotwine

Little Fern Cabin
Sugar Shack, we'll be back!
We parked just off the road and hiked/packed in down a short dirt trail to the Sugar Shack. What a perfect spot to be nestled in the woods, convenient and secluded. This little cabin is filled with simple pleasures—the propane stovetop did the trick- we easily brewed coffee, cooked eggs (from the chicken’s at Fruitdale Farm), fried potatoes, made soup. The wood burning stove heated up the space in no time. Water was convenient to refill near the parking area and have accessible in the cabin. I’m glad we had a cooler. But the kitchen had everything we needed. The space is cozy but there was plenty of space for two to lounge. I had the space to do a workout with bands and a mat. The outdoor privy was clean and convenient. We had a great stay even with cold weather and rain. Cold hikes and muddy conditions were invigorating, knowing we could return to the warmth and comfort of the cabin—and indulge and reset in the heat of the sauna. To top it all off, Aimee is an awesome host. Easygoing, attentive, respectful.

Stay here!! Fruitdale farm is such a beautiful place. We stayed in the Fern Cabin which was perfect for the two of us but all of the camp sites looked great too. The kitchen gazebo at the cabin had everything we need. The gas cook top was nice but we also just cooked over the fire with the grate that was available. The portable propane heater heated up the cabin quickly and the bed was comfortable. Walk the trails and explore the property. Take advantage of the sauna as well. Can't wait to go back.

Convenient secluded camping
Great spot for folks looking for a lovely camp site that's somewhere between car camping and back country camping. Short walk to convenience's but back in the woods feels secluded and relaxing. Great amenities from chopped wood pile for a fee and outhouse/pit toilets. This was my third stay and I've been at a different site each time, each were really lovely!

Enjoyed our stay!
Fruitdale farm exceeded our expectations. We particularly enjoyed exploring the nature trails throughout the farm that were well marked and maintained. Everything was in order and well thought out. We also appreciated Aimee’s attention to detail and excellent communication. Looking forward to another visit, and maybe staying in one of the small cabins. Five stars!

Fall family camp out
Yet another wonderful success of a camping outing thanks to Aimee and her beautiful space and hospitality. We are so grateful for such a cozy, magical place to experience the beauty of fall camping with our young children. It’s amazing to see our kiddos feel right at home and excited to explore and adventure together. Many great memories made - and no better place !

First stay fantastic-will be back!
We loved our first stay at Aimee’s in site 2. The property is beautiful. Site 2 was close to everything but still felt private. Aimee is a responsive and accommodating host. Even though it is a primitive site there are lots of little details that make it stand out. Loved having our first load of firewood delivered to our site, and self-serve firewood nearby with multiple ways to pay. The privy with composting toilet was nice. And we liked that there were nature trails and the pond to enjoy. The other campers we encountered while we were there were friendly and courteous. Will definitely be coming again!

Fall Camping is the Best
This weekend was my first time staying at the farm during Autumn and it was incredible. The drive itself was a beautiful journey, all the trees in shades of yellow, orange, and red. We were able to hit a trail at the Highlands Nature Sanctuary and we just happened to drive through town during their annual festival of leaves. The night was chilly but we were able to keep a nice fire going for cooking and warmth thanks to Aimee's supply of wood. I will always recommend Fruitdale to everyone, it's the best.

Great spot
We had an awesome time. Definitely recommend site 6 to everyone but especially those with little camping experience. Really nice sleeping arrangements and site layout plus so many amenities. Close to the restroom but not too close and trails right there too.

Birthday Camping
It was my boyfriend's 30th birthday so we chose to camp out to celebrate. Aimee was very accommodating with our 12 person group and was very informative when asking which sites were best for our group! We stayed in site 5 and 3. The hike back to the site further away from the edge of the woods was quite the hike with our belongings. Wheelbarrow helped a lot but it was still a bit more than anticipated. However, the sites were beautiful! Very relaxing and peaceful. The pond was great to use during the day and for the pups to take a swim! Very great experience!

We loooooved our stay on Aimee’s land! There is so much to explore! Our kids loved that they could just roam the trails and went on many adventures. We stayed at site 4 and it’s the perfect amount of shade and space. Just note if your not so primitive in your packing (we always bring too much) the walk to the site is a bit strenuous but worth every step. Aimee was super responsive and gave great directions. This was one of the best camping spots we’ve ever been to and will 100% be back!

Little Fern Cabin
Aimee’s farm and the Little Fern Cabin were perfect for a solo retreat! There’s so much to do and explore on the farm alone that I regret not staying an extra day to just enjoy. Aimee was easy to communicate with and offered a ton of recommendations for what to do/where to go nearby. A really under-appreciated part of Ohio that I’m keen to visit again.

Excellent place to get away!
I loved camping here. It's was the perfect place to get away. The campsites arenot close together. I was there during the week so it was not crowded. There were great trees for my hammock as well as good space for my tent. Site #2 is very shady. Definitely a great place to stay if you love night time nature sounds. The privy was plenty close. Aimee was very prompt about responding to my request for a reservation and for firewood. She was very friendly in person also. The farm is close to hiking and other outdoor activities. I will be visiting again.
