ABOUT DOREEN

I’m an entrepreneur. I’m all about health and taking care of the mind, body and spirit. 

I’m an organic farmer, health coach, mindset mentor and Psych-K facilitator. 

I have six children and hosted three foreign exchange students. I love kids, animals (especially horses) and nature. I love anything and everything about health and personal growth and well being.

ABOUT THE FARM

We have a working, organic farm with a lot of animals, however, we also do crops as well. This particular farm is 138 acres with 8 acres of woods. We have working dogs, sheep, cattle, horses, a few ducks, chickens, a couple goats, a mini horse and outdoor cats on our farm. We have some super great animals. Most of which are very friendly.

You never know what will be available to see on the farm when you visit. We are expecting a foal (baby horse) this summer (2021) and are already planning for another foal next summer as well. We often have puppies as well and sometimes we have to bottle feed lambs. There's never a dull moment.

Our farm is unique in the way of having a very positive VIBE to it. The energy is awesome! It's really a space of tranquility and healing if you allow yourself to go there.

After hosting with air b+b for a little over a year now, we decided to give this a try as well. We love hosting people and having them come to the farm and enjoy our way of life. It also helps to have a supplemental income as having and running a small family farm isn't very sustainable. Typically there's off the farm jobs to help pay for the farm life. It's a crazy equation. Small family farms are far and few between. Support your local farmer if possible! It is greatly appreciated! 

CAMPING (Glamping)

We are going to start out by offering four camp spaces on our farm. These are actually located in the yard area which surrounds the house which is fenced on all three sides which house animals and then the gravel road out front. It's very spacious with plenty of room to enjoy separate space. 

However, as of right now we are starting out with one large fire pit which is shared by all campers. If needed, we can add another one, but we first want to see how this is going to go. We will have pre cut fire wood here for purchase. We also have a hand made shitter house, I mean composting toilet. lol This will be available for the use of all the campers. It's great, it's free of unpleasant smell and free of flies!

We'd like to offer the opportunity for clamping rather than a rustic style of camping. With that being said, we offer a shared refrigerator as well as outdoor plugs for cell phone charging or anything else that's in need of a simple charge.

ADDITIONAL PRIVATE CAMPING SPACE

We'd also like to offer two separate, private, spaces available for camping out back by the woods. It's a bit less than a half mile off the road and there would be a camp on each side of the woods. During the summer months there will be about twenty head of young cattle pastured right along the woods by the camp sites. These two camp sites will have a fire pit each, no toilet or running water. This is totally rustic. You can cut your own wood in the woods from fallen trees. You are welcome to come and get water from the farm if needed. If you choose this option, we have a couple of ways we can help you get your supplies to your camp site if needed. We are undecided as to whether or not we can allow driving back there at this time.

RV HOOK UP

We do have a single space available to an RV. It does sit near the house. It would have electric hook up as well as water. Please contact Doreen for more details.

POOL

You will find a large round pool with a large, attached wooden deck off of it on the farm. Most days this will be open to the campers, however, please be advised it may occasionally be closed for our own personal use. The pool is mostly chlorine free and is deeper in the center at 5 foot deep and 4 foot around the edge. There are steps going into the pool vs a ladder. The deck also has a couple of tables and chairs as well, with one umbrella. You will be required to sign a pool waiver upon arrival as there is no lifeguard on duty and we can not be responsible.

EXTRAS

We also have a horse shoe pit you're welcome to enjoy and a large sand box for your kiddos as well. I'm currently working on getting a playground set located and installed, so fingers crossed I can do that this year (2021)

We will have a charcoal grill on the premises with charcoal for sale if any of the campers would like to use it. This will be a shared grill.

We are also blessed with some of the most incredible sunrises and sunsets here! It's a huge bonus! ENJOY!

PLEASE BE ADVISED

~Even though there are some trees, I would say there is not a great deal of shaded area and it may be a good idea to bring a canopy tent.  

 ~There may be farming taking place. Meaning tractors going by or pulling in the driveway and other equipment.   

~This is a working farm with many animals. You may hear many animal noises at night and during the early morning hours, such as dogs barking and roosters crowing should be amongst the most prevalent. 

CAMPSITES 1-4

These campsites are located around the house and farm. Campers are welcome to choose a spot of their choice and liking.

CAMPSITE 5

This campsite is a private locating in the back forty acre field on the west side of the woods. As of right now it is equipped with a fire pit and is a nice location for a shaded area. We do farm the field next to this site so you may see an occasional tractor in the field for a short period of time. We also have cattle pastured near this location.

CAMPSITE 6

This campsite is a private location in the back forty acre field on the east side of the woods. As of right now it is equipped with a fire pit. This area has more open space with sunshine. We do farm the field next to this site so you may see an occasional tractor in the field for a short period of time. We also pasture cattle near this location.

I will provide some pictures as soon as I can get them.

We had a laid back day tent camping at this nice farm. Very pretty land, very nice animals. Doreen, the host, was friendly and helpful. The outdoor sink and outhouse were clean and convenient. We took our 5 year old and he enjoyed the sandbox, the outdoor dogs and cats, and the farm tour we took. He collected eggs, fed a little cow and met some of the horses and sheep.

She let us pick pretty much anywhere to set up camp. We stayed in the house's backyard, near the large fire pit and the farm animals. There are farm noises at night, as she says in her description, and they provide ear plugs in the outhouse if you find you need them.

We enjoyed our stay!

Loved camping on Doreen's property! We chose the secluded spot and had an incredible time. Wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature (keep an eye out for the bald eagle!). Looking forward to returning as soon as we can!

Thanks Doreen!

Absolutely loved camping here! Doreen is an incredibly kind person and helped make our stay wonderful. The land is perfect for camping. The fire pit was really relaxing to sit by at night. Her dog Lucy is very friendly and will likely become your best friend during your stay! The wood compostable toilet is pretty neat and clean, you don't even mind it being outdoors. If I'm ever in the area again, I would love to stay here. No complaints!

This farm was above and beyond what we expected for a farm visit overnight experience. Doreen was a wonderful host and gave us a full tour of her working farm. She allowed us to roam the farm and meet the animals and we even got to spend some time with the new puppies! They had horses, sheep, goats, chickens and some super friendly guardian dogs who loved to help show us around as well. She was very accommodating especially considering we made the reservation a day prior. She was very friendly and provided us with everything we needed for our farm visit. The animals are very friendly and it was great to spend time with them! Will definitely be returning in the warmer months!
