Previously a 100 acre century farm, this fertile land was tended to by generations of old time farmers. Their dairy cows pastured in areas which we now graze sheep.  The restored quarry provided gravel for the nearby highway restoration and local projects. The property is currently a mix of hay ground, cropland, pasture, forest, and quarry. Twin sisters, Darla and Kayla, and their families live across the road from each other and own the surrounding 140 acres. They keep busy planting/tending trees, making hay, moving fence for grazing animals, operating a farm business called Twin Folk Farms (pastured meat, camps, etc), and raising their families. Learn more about this land: - This site is at the edge of a restored quarry, sheep pasture, and wooded hillside. - The site is tucked down a flat mowed path, so it feels very private and protected. - You can hike up a path to the sheep pasture. Sometimes sheep are there, sometimes elsewhere on the farm. You can hike the other direction and check out the restored quarry. We have paths all around the property, so feel free to respectfully explore. - You can't see the highway from this site, but you can hear it. It's super handy to be able to hop out of your campsite haven and onto the hwy, but be aware that you will hear vehicles. - There's a Mississippi river boat launch a few miles down the road, so feel free to park your boat at the bottom of the quarry driveway. - The Hay Creek riding trails are 25 minutes away, so contact us if you want to set up a place in the quarry to park your horses and trailer for the night. - We are certified to sell meat straight off of the farm (Twin Folk Farms), so contact us if you want to purchase your meat and have it delivered to your campsite. You can also set up a time to come up to the farm and purchase meat.  - The beautiful, historic town of Red Wing is 10 minutes from our farm. You'll find a mix of modern amenities and historic shops to suit your fancy.

A wonderful spot!
We loved stopping here on our way home with a new camper. Darla was an absolutely wonderful host, and the eggs & sausage for breakfast was spectacular!

The site was wonderful and very private, with great amenities like a grill grate and private toilet. It’s super close to Red Wing so we ran into town for ice cream :) Overall was a very relaxing weekend and will definitely be back!

Beautiful Farm close to Red Wing!
Twin Folk Farms is a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy same time outside. We loved waking up in the morning and cooking eggs and pork links from the farm provided by the owners! Fall is the perfect time to stay and enjoy the crisp air. Looking forward to our next stay!

Accommodating nook with perks
Cool area. Caring host. Felt secluded but close to highway. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend it. Personal toilet, solar shower, grill. We got a visit from a orange cat.

Nice primitive camp site, easily accessible yet secluded. Host was very nice to work with too. We’ll likely be back with our young kids, lots of nature to explore on the site.

Relax, rest and recharge.
It was great to get away from the busy city and camp in a secluded area to relax and rest. It was interesting to see the livestock activity from a distance while camping. Great area to explore just a short distance away.

Great Space, Great Time
We enjoyed our time at the Sheep Shanty. The site is very secluded, which we enjoyed. Nearby was the flock of sheep and Darla's sheep dog, who was very friendly and kept a watchful eye on us! Communication was great and Darla checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything. This was only about an hour from our southern suburb home and a perfect weekend get away. We would recommend it and will stay again in the future.

We needed a place to stay in the area and this was perfect. Super private. It's a strange bowl in the landscape that's ruggedly pretty. Simple and just what we needed.

Privacy!!
Sheep Shanty was a fun spot for the night. It is very private, and there is plenty of room to roam. It was a refreshing change from the typical campground. The GPS coordinates were spot on which made finding it much easier. Darla had everything ready to go and checked in on us to make sure we were set.

We had a delightful time at the sheep shanty! This was a great 4th of July escape from the city - a beautiful and private campsite, with exactly the right amenities for the weekend. We greatly enjoyed having firewood at the campsite upon arrival. The sausage and eggs (also waiting for our arrival) were AMAZING!! We hope to come back to camp, and know we will be back for meat! What a great spot!!!

Clean, relaxing and enjoyable
Nice cozy spot with everything we needed. Communication was awesome and bacon was delicious. The animals are always great to see while on the farm. Would come back. You can hear cars from the road but that did not ruin the experience.

Unique stay with lots of space
We really enjoyed our stay here. Owner was easy to reach and friendly, great value with lots of space to ourselves, also had a unique experience being with the sheep in the pasture (thanks Darla!). It's a brand new listing, so some things like clearer directions are still being figured out, but i would definitely give this place a shot.

Great place to camp!
Darla’s land is great! The campsite is taken care of and even has its own composting toilet. I loved camping by the sheep that are fenced in along the quarry. There are multiple trails for hikes and great views. Being so close to Red Wing is nice. Great place to camp!

Great site and great host
We had a great stay and Darla was a fantastic host. We stayed two nights the when the temperature was nearly 100 both days. On the first day Darla checked in with us and even offered a kiddy pool to help cool off; it was kindness like that which marked our trip. The site is great, tucked away in private land. We felt secluded and away from things while only 15 minutes from Red Wing and Ellsworth. It offers everything as outlined including the baaing of sheep. Plus, the water from their tap is ice cold and delicious. Finally,as an individual with mobility issues I felt very comfortable camping here and will go back many times.
