Our little chunk of paradise is about 8 acres. It is a diverse piece of land allowing for micro environments. A hilltop with an orchard a few terraced garden beds, about an acre or so of wooded area with a waterway down below, and another 1.5 acre of garden, intermixed with pasture, out buildings and our home. The land is surrounded by 120 acres of adjacent farmland. Across our street is wetlands and woods. Adjacent to the 120 acres of farmland is another 80 acres of public hunting land. We are blessed to live so close to nature without a view of a neighbors house. Stars, crickets, frogs, woodcocks in spring, hummingbirds and sandhill cranes in summer, and more all in abundance at our Willoway Farm. We bought our home in 2006. Before then it was in the same family that settled there in 1840s-1850s. At one time there was a log cabin, then they built our cream city brick farmhouse in 1893. The farm in the 1980s and before was a dairy farm. When we bought it half of where you see the garden was either grass or part of the conventional farm adjacent to our property. Our farm logo is taken from the builder of the barn-many pioneer barn builders often signed their barn work with a symbol. We liked the symbol and kept it to use as our own yet honor the builder of our barn. We have great appreciation for those that built with such beautiful large trees and all by hand. The Produce Wash Building is a timber frame built by Dan our farm owner and farm doer. The timber frame was made from reclaimed timbers and reclaimed barn siding, the shingles were made from scratch by Dan also. Learn more about this land: Willoway Farm is a small scale organic vegetable &and flower farm established in 2007, located 35 minutes north of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It's situated upon a glacial hill over looking a Milwaukee river flowage to the south and the kettle moraine state forest to the northwest. Our 8 acre land with cut flower & heirloom vegetable garden is surrounded by over 200 acres of uninhabited land, ( Farmland & state wild land). We are just 5 minutes from hiking trails into the state forest, which is beautiful all times of the year! A 55 acre secluded lake with public access is only 1.5 miles from Willoway - we hear the fishing is good. New now is across the street is a 283 acre land trust- Biehl Nature Preserve on Lake Twelve. The roads near the farm traverse through mixed forest and farm land with only slight traffic offering exceptional bicycling! The camp space is primitive and private yet offers gentle vistas upon the surrounding landscape with often both amazing sunrises and sunsets - situated upon the high point of the farm nestled in a young apple orchard. We have a spacious outhouse on site. We feel so fortunate live and farm where we do & love offering the natural beauty it offers to others. Our garden is lush with flowers, herbs and vegetables great for observing our plethora of pollinators. There are so many places to visit within 10 miles of our Campsite. A favorite is Riveredge Nature Center only 9.6 miles offering 3 miles of trails including 1 mile along Milwaukee River. Riveredge Nature Center has vast landscapes with so many lovely native wild flowers.

Orchard Hilltop Camp @Willoway Farm
The farm is really beautiful and was a lovely experience for my kids' first time camping! The campsite is quiet, with some nice trees for shade/cover from wind and rain. There was a curious sheep who watched us walk to the outhouse, which really thrilled the kids (and the adults, too). Our hosts were communicative and understanding of a change of plans we had to make. I would definitely camp here again!

Orchard Hilltop Camp @Willoway Farm
Lovely camping spot on a Wisconsin farm! Plenty of space to set up tents among the trees. Picnic table with a bench and fire pit were great for preparing/eating meals (we brought our own grate to put over the fire and a small camping stove). Wheelbarrow of wood was available for $20, also wood available for sale in the area, including at Harrington Beach State Park. The outhouse was in good shape and just down the hill from the site. Water pump was also down the hill and easy to use. The water was yellowish -- probably okay and has to do with iron/manganese but we weren't 100% sure we could drink it, though we did in the end. May be good to bring some big water containers with you. The spot was pretty quiet and relaxing at night except for occasional road traffic, some gunshots from the local gun/fishing club, and some people arguing at a nearby farm. We wish we had more of a chance to interact with hosts and also to get a tour of the farm, like it shows in the photos, but we followed instructions and didn't explore too much. Overall had a nice stay and would recommend to others. Thanks for hosting us!

Nice camping spot and well maintained with good views but the mosquitos were unstoppable - they swarmed all aver us - we had to leave due to mosquitos and impending storms - owner would not refund us and stopped replying to our messages sadly.
