The Farm Restoration

Our purchase of the farm in 2015 began the process of restoring the farm to its former glory. In partnership with the Natural Resource Conservation Agency we embarked on a journey to bring biodiversity and balance back to the farm. We are working on meadow restoration, reducing invasive species, creating habitat to repopulate bob white quail and wild turkey.

Guests can enjoy the peace and quiet, wander the trails, visit the Nigerian dwarf dairy goat herd, watch our beautiful Texas Longhorns as they browse or see the black buck and Barbado sheep relaxing in the meadow. Wild life viewing stands are available for those who would like to sit and observe our flora and fauna.

Come walk the Labyrinth located near the main farm house. 

WE VALUE

All species living together in nature restoratively

WE STRIVE

to CULTIVATE thriving biodiverse habitats, BECAUSE we live here.

to LEARN from the regenerative nature of flora and fauna.

to SHARE the responsibility to care for one another.

to GROW our deep appreciation for the beauty of this Earth.

We are located at the far end of a sandy stretch of road, completely private. The 67 acres are completely enclosed  and gated, so you can't get lost for too long, as you wander the well maintained trails that meander through the forests and meadows on the farm. 

We ask that campers park their cars just inside the gate and camp within "range" of a new cedar outhouse with composting toilet, located in the southwest corner of the property (close to the front gate). The entire acreage is open to exploring and there is a small pond (great for dog swimming only). Along with outdoor composting toilet. There is potable water available in campground. Please pack in/pack out your belongings and all trash. We welcome your ideas and shared vision. It's very Natural out here . . .

Our third time at the farm and it was even more enjoyable, even with two littles! Shaded tent areas, access to trails, and beautiful views. We look forward to coming back.

From the adorable baby goats to the kind and welcoming nature of Graham and Karen, we can’t recommend this wonderful farm enough. Our family enjoyed connecting with the animals and the relaxing atmosphere in and around the camp sites. Climbing on hay bails, feeding our new furry friends and walking miles around the property at sunset - everyone needs a weekend like this. We’ll be back again for sure!

Second time camping here. Love it. I'm hesitant to say more because I don't want to see the place get overrun!

Great place to camp! My wife and I stayed in the Butterfly Cottage some time ago and had an amazing time. We brought the kids this weekend and tent camped. We loved it! The kids got up early every morning to help Graham feed the animals. We enjoyed hiking around the property and seeing all the exotic animals.

I highly recommend!
