The Farm Restoration

Our purchase of the farm in 2015 began the process of restoringthe farm to its former glory. In partnership with the Natural ResourceConservation Agency we embarked on a journey to bring biodiversity and balanceback to the farm. We are working on meadow restoration, reducing invasivespecies, 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, Mouflon and Barbado sheep relaxing in the meadow. Wildlife 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 farmhouse.

Being away from the world was probably the only reason we had fun but unfortunately other than that it wasn’t the best stay…we had spiders all in our bed and I’m talking about palm size spiders to where we didn’t feel comfortable and had to sleep in the car. They had one bathroom but when going in side we noticed a wasp nest and a bunch of spiders in there so we had to go to the store to use the bathroom and also had to find a HUGE wasp nest outside to the back of our tent and my bf is HIGHLY ALLERGIC…to sum it up there was just not maintenance to make the stay a little bit safer and CONVENIENT!!!

Karen and Graham are always the best hosts. The property is beautiful and rich with exotics and other wildlife. The free range gated area for the livestock-type residence of the property is great to take kids and have them experience the friendly goats, turkeys (Captain America and Chief, as we’ve come to call them. Go out and and take a look and you’ll know why).

The Glamping tent is wonderful and clean, and the fire pit is extremely convenient especially since Graham has placed a fire would bundle shelter on the main path to the campsite! The firewood bundle shelter made it possible for me to easily gather firewood to keep the fire burning snd stay warm when outside the tent (it seems to hold heat relatively well, and I know it holds out the rain from the last trip out to visit Karen and Graham. I highly recommend!

Finally a chance to relax! I have stayed at a few places on HipCamp and this was by far the best. Gorgeous landscape, welcoming hosts, cute outdoor shower, clean tent & bed, quiet at night, plenty of privacy. I cant wait to go back.

We got to personally meet Graham and he was kind enough to give us a little tour of the land. They do an awesome job taking care of their farm animals, and taking care of the glamping tent. Wonderfully safe and a great getaway!
