Check-in before dark. (5pm).

Pitch your tent on our organic farm. The site is private 3 acres of fields, woods and stream that you can play, relax and explore on our 17 acre farm. Enjoy nature at its best on our small farm far away from roads and city life. The campsite is the epitome of 'getting away.' Cell service is spotty at best. You're welcome to use our open WIFI to surf the net and make WIFI calls outside of the greenhouse.

Campsite Amenities: The campsite has a gravel enclosed fire ring, picnic table, charcoal grill, composting toilet (with toilet paper), and solar outdoor shower (available upon request). 

Parking: If you have a vehicle that can drive on the grass (our all-terrain Prius does well), you're welcome to park near the campsite (about 50 feet away, uphill). Otherwise, you can park by the road and walk a few minutes (about 1/4 mile) to your site.

Local Attractions: The Farm - You can arrange a group walking farm tour. The tour will include information about organic integrative pest management, our solar powered chicken coop, the greenhouse, tiny house construction, the farm's history, and much more. Catoctin Scenic Route - We are located on the scenic route. This is a drivable route (and popular among cyclists!) with many scenic views, including our farm! Hiking- We are about 1 mile from an Appalachian Trail access point (on the same road) with ample parking. Greenbrier State Park has wonderful hiking, lake and a sandy beach. Annapolis Rock & Black Rock Cliff Trailhead has amazing views. Thurston Griggs Trail connects to Annapolis Rock and is about a 1-2 hour hike, depending on your pace. South Mountain State Park has well maintained hiking trails. Gambrill State Park has 16 miles of hiking. The list goes on! Horseback riding - there are local farms that provide lessons.

Small Town Life: Smithsburg is the closes town (about 7 mins drive). Here you can pick up pizza, visit Veterans Park and the local library, and have a drink at the local dive bar.

Small City Life: Downtown Frederick has a small town feel wrapped in an urban environment. It's cute and quaint. Visit Carol Creek for an urban park walk where you can stop for ice cream or a glass of wine. Frederick also has a plethora of craft breweries to choose from. There's a pub crawl tour to explore if you're interested. There are many restaurants to choose from as well.

Supplies: The closest convenience store is Harne's and is a 3 min drive. The closest grocery store is Martin's Food in Smithsburg (8 min drive). There are many local farms with farm stands in the area. We can provide you with recommendations if you're interested! We also sell organic pasture raised eggs, organic produce and organic baked goods on the farm.

Pets are welcome, but must remain leashed/under control at all times.

We are embracing of diversity and welcome all to share this special space.

Great campsite for a group of friends to camp for the weekend. There is tons of space for tents, and the space was lovely and very quiet. Would highly recommend. The farm fresh eggs were delicious, too.

Mehra's property is in a beautiful location and exactly what we needed for a fall weekend with our kids. Our campsite was near the back of their property and offered plenty of space and privacy. The nearby farm animals and cats were a big hit with the kids and there were lots of family-friendly activities nearby to fill the day. There is no cell coverage on the property, so we really appreciated their Wifi access up near the house for periodic check-ins. Look forward to returning soon!

I loved tent camping here! It is very private and quiet. The fire pit was amazing. I usually always have at least one complaint about a campsite. But I don’t have anything bad to say about this one. I would definitely come back here. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

Lovely spot with lots of cool features, great for tent camping. The sun shower and compost toilet were both awesome to have. It was also nice to be in a field but along a tree line so we still had spots with shade during the afternoon. The surrounding area was really beautiful and scenic we did some driving around and visited the state park which were also nice.

We just spent a week at Mother's Earth Organic farm with our RV and were blown away with the site . It is privately situated large area behind the farm surrounded by trees . The field in the middle was filled with butterflies. We enjoyed everything about our stay . The outdoor bathroom , shower and fire pit area were just a few of the awesome amenities we enjoyed . So much to explore and enjoy . We enjoyed the fresh eggs and delicious bread (delivered right to the site) Conveniently located by a few parks with awesome rides. We have stayed at over 100 places with our RV all over the country and without a doubt this is our favorite... Can't wait to return.

Just perfect. We went with 6 adults, 1 toddler, and our dog, and everyone had an amazing time. The camping space is beautiful, large, immaculately maintained, and private. I was most worried about having enough shade on a hot June weekend, but we just followed the shade along the edge of the field as the sun moved, and we were fine. The composting toilet is both private and set up so you have an amazing view. We enjoyed watching the cows in the next field over, and we enjoyed the various berries growing around the camp. We met Mehra’s kind and welcoming husband at check-in, and we thoroughly enjoyed the farm box we purchased in advance. We were sad that we stayed for only one night. We will absolutely return for a longer stay.

This is a great place to stay. The owners are friendly and helpful and they have created a really nice site. It is very large, big enough for kids to run around and play. Facilities are well kept. Fire ring is great. We were here with four smallish tents and two vehicles.

Tons of fun outdoorsy things to do nearby.
