Great hosts and a lovely large and private campsite with a fire pit, tables and chairs. The animals are really cute and interesting, although they do make a lot of noise. The portapotty is rustic, bring your own hand sanitizier and flashlight.

Absolutely the best way I could have spent my weekend. The campsite was perfectly spotless with a lot of seating, the portapotties were spotless, and Peter's friendliness and friendly approach made this a memorable trip, that I cannot wait to do again.

We had an amazing time at Peter’s farm. Our stay exceeded my expectations. Peter was very friendly and laid back. The animals were all so kind. Our 3 year old adored the sweet pigs, goats, and chickens. The campsite was perfect and there was an abundance of wood available to keep our fire going for the entire weekend. The outside shower made our relaxing weekend complete. You have to try Peter’s goat cheese - it’s the best we’ve ever had. We felt compelled to being extra cheese home with us to share with our friends. We will certainly be back to visit again soon.

Pete is a great host. He is accomodating and not overbearing. Firewood stacks were more than average. Kids had a great time playing around the farm and seeing the animals.

Peter's farm had a variety of ups and downs

Pro's:
-beautiful
-hammock and chairs overlooking the animal pens
-surprisingly little odor
-firewood already at campsite
-host had added a woodchip-base for our tent that morning, which improved temperature and moisture during the night
-table and benches at site

cons
-it was not a drive up site and the car was not able to be at site with us, we were told the listing was amended after our booking
-many medium sized rocks at site that we were tripping on throughout our stay

We had a wonderful time staying at Shellbark Hollow Farm. The site was easily big enough for our needs and Peter very kindly provided a metal fire pit with a grilling rack. We bought some pork sausages from Peter and had a wonderful meal. Our toddler (20 months) enjoyed seeing the goats and the pigs and playing with the cat. We went hiking in French Creek State Park and the Crow's Nest Preserve. All in all, we would definitely recommend the farm and we'll surely return at some point.
