Milk Thistle Farm

· Greene, Rhode Island
5 acres
3 sites
3 Tent
With the original home built in 1785, Milk Thistle farm is on the historic register and is comprised of the main house and 5 acres of land. It is run as a small homestead and is home to rescued chickens, goats, and pigs, as well as two humans and their dog and cat companions. The main property is fenced in, with a large back field great for tent camping, and an orchard to explore that can also double as hammock camping. There is parking for cars, bikes, and perhaps a camper but tent camping is best suited. We try to minimize our impact on the environment as much as possible, and encourage our guests to compost, recycle, and dispose of waste accordingly. Please note we have dogs, including a Livestock Guardian Dog that does bark to alert us of new people. We will introduce her to any guests to minimize disruptions.

Orchard Tent and Hammock Oasis
Sweet spot
I loved seeing the farm animals and petting the dogs! Krystine was very friendly, answered my questions, showed me around, and even offered an excellent dinner recommendation. The site is perfect for tenting under the stars, with a covered table and chairs, a composting toilet, and a fire pit all nearby.

Pastoral Getaway
Krystine is an excellent host, welcoming us and introducing us to the farm animals, very responsive to questions, and has put together a charming camp area. Would recommend to anyone looking to camp with the added bonus of a small family farm. The fresh eggs are delish.

Rural Homestead Tent Oasis
What a great spot! We enjoyed our stay as well as the animal feeding and breakfast add ons. Krystine has some very sweet and friendly animals and wow can she whip up a delicious breakfast with fresh chicken eggs! The camp spot was lovely and had she thought of everything we might need. I would highly recommend staying here. Big bonus that the location is just a few minutes from the Washington secondary bike path and there are two beautiful Audubon properties within a few minutes biking distance from the camp.

Rural Homestead Tent Oasis
Peaceful Field with Wooded Border
The raked path through the woods (with solar lighting) lent a secluded feel to this lovely tent site which was nicely mown and level. Our host was responsive and friendly; she left us some cold spring water and bug spray. The large tent with picnic tables and corn hole went unused by us but would have been great for a cookout if our schedule had allowed. We admired the pallet fences (well-built and resourceful) for the goats and chickens. Stay here for a lovely evening.
