Make friends with a farmer!!
Thanks Jay for the opportunity to stay at your Farm! The site was great and very private and spacious with a good shady spot for the tent and easy access to water and electricity. The site has a fire ring and Jay's bundle of wood is hard wood, well dried and was enough to last the evening. There was very little street traffic and so the sense of quiet and calm was pervasive. We enjoyed our chats with Jay - he is knowledgeable about the land, the area's history and the communities there. Highly recommend and hope to be back again.
I cannot recommend Shine & Rise farm enough! Our campsite was spacious and completely private. Also, we got there a little later than expected and the string lights made it easy to set up our tent in the dark.
Jay and Tatum were lovely. We loved learning about them and their vision for the farm. If you’re looking for a unique place to stay, look no further!
This was wonderful. All around. Jay is an incredible host. He is easy to get along with and very accommodating. The campsites are beautiful, acres apart from each other it’s about as private as you can get. Very safe and welcoming. Highly recommend.
Nestled in the tall forest.
It was a wonderful site, and we are very thankful full Jay was able to meet us even though we were a bit late. our site had the party lights and power which was a big help. Surrounded by a forest of oh-so-tall trees. A sight for sore eyes for this central Texas couple.
This farm and property were lovely and well set up and maintained. Jay and his family were wonderful. They let us see their goslings and recommended the best beach area for our family to explore. (Savage Neck Dunes State Natural Area - a perfect half mile hike to a cool beach area with lots of drift wood trees my kids liked exploring.) We definitely recommend camping here!
Charming wooded camp spot, sweet!
Jay's place is great and he's very friendly and welcoming. We felt safe and comfortable with all the amenities he has set up at the camp spot, like electricity if you need it and a big platform to set up camp on (or perform a dance recital haha).
We pulled in a little later than expected but just before dark - he met us on the road and took us to the spot - it's got a fantastic fire pit and Jay has wood available (which I'd always recommend since you don't want to take wood from other forests, it's always a risk to transfer foreign bugs to a new ecosystem.)
The fireflies were an amazing show and we walked a little trail after the rain cleared up in the morning, but we didn't make it to tour his farm (we'll be back and looking forward to it!) We roasted some of his delicious yellow squash for dinner over the fire and it was super tasty. Thanks, Jay!
Private site in a stand of oaks
Very private site in a stand of oaks with no sights or sounds of people, near a back road but very little traffic. About 20 minute drive to a nature preserve on the Bay with a nice stretch of beach. Theory and policy meets practice at the working farm where there's lots to learn about sustainable agriculture.
