We have a pretty magical farm in rural West Greenwich. We are only about 10 mins from I-95 but we are nestled in the woods. Fall asleep to the sound of crickets and cicadas and wake up to birds chirping and our rooster crowing . It is certainly a peaceful, quiet, private area. Our site has a waste-bag toilet (must take waste with you), an extension cord and a sink. The site is located in a quiet field where you will often find deer grazing in the morning and afternoon. We are a young farming family. Our dream is to build a cidery on this property in future years. We have started to plant our orchard with cider apple varieties, about 650 dwarf apple trees, and we are also growing some flowers and squash at the moment. We currently have six pigs and nine chickens on the farm. Eggs and cuts of pork are available for purchase, just ask! Feel free to walk around the farm, just be respectful, don't leave anything behind, and be aware that some areas have poison ivy (the field where you are staying does not have any).Come camp in our secluded Firefly Field and soak in some nature. This field is surrounded by trees to give you a private space of your own. There are often deer grazing in the morning and afternoon hours and you will surely see plenty of birds and other wildlife as well. Expect to fall asleep to the sounds of crickets and cicadas in the summer and wake to the songs of birds and the crow of our rooster. You are welcome to walk around, visit with the pigs (seasonal) and chickens, and check out our high density apple orchard. We also have Cut Your Own Zinnias in the summer months. Centrally located in RI! Drive 30 minutes North to Providence, 30 minutes South to Narragansett Beach, 20 minutes East to Historic Wickford Village. Plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails just minutes away - Big River Management Area and Cuttyhunk Brook Preserve are right down the road! There is a camping toilet for solid waste only. It is lined with a bag and you MUST carry this out with you. Friendly, well-behaved dogs are welcome. You must pick up after your dog!! We have a dog and toddler as well as a cat, chickens, and pigs so your dog MUST be well-trained and friendly. Pork and eggs from our farm are available upon request. There are more cuts available, but some options are available for purchase through hipcamp. Please provide ample notice so we are able to provide these items to you upon your arrival. Send a message for more details! Camp fires in the provided fire ring are only allowed during appropriate conditions. Please wet down the surrounding area thoroughly before starting and soak the fire once done. I will need some notice to hook up the sink to water, run the extension cord out there, as well as to get the site mowed and ready. The sink’s water is potable and located at the site. Things to note: Please be careful of poison ivy while roaming the farm and be sure to do a tick check. Bring bug spray in the warmer months, we are in the woods with some wetlands behind us. We are a working farm, so we may be out on the tractors getting some work done, sometimes in the early morning hours. Please be courteous and plan to arrive prior to 10pm. Please let us know your ETA upon booking.

Great place!
What a magical place to stay. We parked our camper in the aptly named Firefly Field. We explored the property, then lit a fire in the fire pit that’s there (wood provided!) and watched the fireflies all evening. We woke up to a family of wild turkeys outside in the same field!! Highly recommend.

Peaceful getaway
We loved camping on Jaclyn’s land! The outdoor sink and string lights were nice touches. We had our privacy and peace and enjoyed the view of the field and woods. At night we saw so many firefly's! We visited the pigs and chickens, and purchased some very delicious pork from the owners. We would love to come back.

It truly is Firefly Farm
I had a quick trip nearby and when I saw the host Jaclyn’s set up, I said to myself, this will work. Then I arrived and it was so much more. A perfectly mixed area with sun and shade. Level and near level grounds make for a very easy set up. You are near a stone wall line that looks upon an open meadow. As the evening came on, so did the fireflies. Lots of great bird life for those interested. Having that sink setup and potable water is a plus. They have a special spot. I will surly be back in the future. Thanks a bunch for welcoming us Hipcampers to your farm.

Field where dreams are made
Jaclyn's "Firefly Field" is such a wonderful gem. Peaceful. We much appreciated the place, especially Tilly :):):) Having a water source to brush teeth or do the dishes was priceless. The field is mowed so wild flowers offer plenty of space for beneficial insects. Watching the fureflies play while sitting on your adirondack chair at the fireplace was perfcet. 100% recommend this space.

Would stay here again!
Site was as described. Easy check in, land was level, good privacy, can hear occasional road noise. Sink functional and extension cord present as well. Heavy mosquito presence when we stayed (June) but nothing a little bug spray can’t fix. Plenty of fireflies too 😊
