(Tent campers will be reimbursed $3.60, upon arrival, so tent camping=$10.40) We have a small sustainable 4 acre "farm" where chickens roam free, pigs waddle in the mud and yes, where fungi are grown. We dabble in homemade beer and wine which you are welcome to taste and we grow the finest gourmet shiitake mushrooms. Most "extra" shiitakes can be found around the farm, in our small wooded patch or tall grass areas where the "extras" are put out...weather permitting of course. You can collect a couple eggs from under a chicken for a natural breakfast, but if you want a whole dozen, our little ones wash and sell them at $2/dozen for their own fun money. We have an enclosed pasture for your horses (cow, llamas, sheep, goats) to stretch their legs, and we have an all pet policy. If you love them, you can bring them camping. (Note, we are not responsible for pets, please keep a watchful eye on your fur friends) Our farm is a working, reusable/recycle farm. This means we save items for "other" or later use. No white picket fence. We also have dirt, an old barn, and some hodgepodge items, like our wonderful 1940's tractor that is our farm muscle. Different seasons will bring different delights, including apples (fall), cherries (spring), Black walnuts (late fall), white peaches (late summer)& butchering days. There is a small playground by the house for kids, and a small Zipline for those 120# and less, with adult supervision only. You can "rent" out our small camper for an additional fee. Without Electricity=$15 With Electricity=$20 Sleeps up to 8...but more comfortable with 6 or less) Plug in your own camper=$6 (sites only by barn). We are 12 minutes from Lake Storey for fishing, boating, beach, kid water park & pool, and more. Just 8 minutes to Monmouth and Citizen Lake. And 5 minutes from Lake Warren, were the fish nearly jump in the boat to be caught. The garage, sheds, and house are off limits.
