The family we bought the farm from owned and farmed it since 1900. They built a cabin then and built a house around the cabin in 1920. We bought it in 2018 and have been renovating it to build a retreat center for first responders and others who serve unselfishly. To that end, we've cut hiking trails and campsites as well as filling the farm with livestock to help people slow down and de-stress. We're located in the beautiful green hills about an hour east of Nashville, Tennessee.  Learn more about this land: Drift off to sleep with the sounds of a year-round creek just outside your campsite. Wake up to a beautiful meadow surrounded by green hills in rural Tennessee. Campsites are located on a 120 year old farm under restoration, which is family owned and operated. Get some time away. You'll have privacy as you explore the farm: wade the creek, sway on the tire swing, visit the farm animals (goats, cows, pigs, and chickens), pick wild berries, and sample farm fresh produce and eggs when available. Hiking trails are also available on the farm through tranquil woods. Property is easily accessible from Nashville. In addition, day trips are possible to several lakes, rivers, waterfalls, historic sites, civil war battlefields, state parks, and national wildlife areas.

Site 3 - Chatty Heifer Farm
What a fantastic place to stay.
I don’t know if I can say enough positive things about Patti’s site #3 camping spot. From the the constant white noise of the little waterfall, to the countryside, an open field for our dog to run in, to her dogs becoming his new friends, this is a wonderful place to stay. Our pitbull is large, and he was the smallest dog there. Their German shepherd wore him out with all the playing, and the two Pyrenees were sleeping most of the day away to chase off the nighttime animals. Patti met us out there after we arrived and gave us a little info about the place, and was incredibly gracious in offering us to use her place if we ever needed cell service. With an ice cold creek to romp in, fields to run in, and trails across the street to hike on, we will absolutely be coming back to this location. And to mention the farm fresh eggs she gave us that she cleaned that morning, they were absolutely delicious is breakfast tacos the next day.

Site 2 - Chatty Heifer Farm
Fantastic trip! We stayed at site 2 which had great access to the creek for the kids. Plenty of room for a full size family tent plus a 2 person tent. Delicious fresh eggs for breakfast! The highlight for us, though, was having the farm dogs hang out with us. They are the sweetest, best dogs and absolutely made the trip for the kids (and me to be honest)!

Site 3 - Chatty Heifer Farm
Super spot, terrific host!!
We loved site #3. We REALLY liked Patti and the whole thing they have going on at Chatty Heifer. We plan to return and recommend it to anyone else. Points to ponder: 1. Remote location, peaceful. We are eager to return in warmer months to get the full benefit of the sounds of the creek overnight. 2. Scenic. As you look across Dickson Creek to the ridge opposite the farm (spring leaves have just started to come in) is another similar pasture that served as backdrop for wild turkey and a few deer. In the direction of Patti’s place “behind” the campsites you get a vista of a nice but not formidable Cumberland ridge. Patti says there are hiking trails there but we didn’t take advantage this trip. 3. Dogs and eggs. 3 fantastic canine friends of Patti’s will be your companions at times. They are pleasant & SMART. Good humored, sweet dogs. Would pay to talk with Patti if you plan to bring your own though. I don’t think our poodle would’ve done well with them, but that is just our dog. He is a little too friendly and small. Oh—-and Patti may bring you a half dozen fresh eggs from her henhouse in milder months. 4. If you want to get away from the site it is easy to do. We were gone for several hours and nothing was changed. Dogs didn’t bother anything. (We stored food items in our camper trailer because you never know about raccoons etc.).

Beautiful site! Patti was super helpful and gave us some fun things to do in the area. She even brought us some eggs which was such a nice surprise. The site was private and the water running in the creek was great to fall asleep to.

Creek Lullaby
Great spot! The creek sounds provided a relaxing lullaby and the host's 3 herding dogs made me feel safe while camping in my car. Would definitely recommend.
