Quiet weekend on the side of a fiel

Very peaceful spot on the side of a back field. Shady in the mornings but in the direct sun in the evenings. Very quiet. Everyone who works on the farm was very friendly. Port-a-potty nearby and potable water from the farmhouse hose. The farm is close to a bunch of great natural areas. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet.

What a wonderful private spot. Our site was on the edge of a field surrounded by woods with plenty of shade cover if you prefer. It was absolutely beautiful not only the camping spot but the short hike to the field. Dom and his staff provided wheelbarrows to transport our stuff in and were welcoming and informative. The sparkling clean porta potty is a little bit of a walk but we prefer that. Would love to come back!

Great weekend on the farm. We had a secluded, rustic camping site on the farm. Perfect location for exploring the beautiful Berkshires. We enjoyed the trails near the farm and the proximity to Great Barrington. Definitely a unique spot!

We had an amazing time at the Moon in the Pond Farm, we stayed 2 nights with another family friends. The camping area is very private, like you see nothing around expect of nature, there is even a hiking trail in the forest that starts right there. The farm is great, the kids loved the animals. Dominic was very welcoming, one night there was a storm, and he very kindly came to our camp site offering us to come to his barn, we decided to stay in our tent but it was really thoughtful of him! One thing that was not clear to us when reading the description, is that from where you park your car it is maybe a 10 min walk (with kids) to the camp site, it was not an issue for us as we could borrow some wheelbarrows to bring our equipment but wanted to mention it for other campers to get ready! We will definitely come back!

Camping at the farm feels very remote, which we loved. No cars, no people, perfect! So much more peaceful than a traditional campground with tents around.

We absolutely loved everything about our stay at Moon in The Pond Farm. John, Jonathan, and Dom were all super friendly and helpful and the camp site, on the edge of a field, was a beautiful and private place to pitch our tent, cook and just chill out.

One of the highlights of our stay was cooking a delicious meal from squash, kale, onions, and sausage that was all from Moon in the Pond. In fact, I got to cut the black kale from the next field over just a few minutes before cooking it. Farm to table where the table is actually on the farm!

The location is also fantastic. We hiked in Taconic State Park in NY, canoed on Twin Lakes in CT, and cycled a loop east and South of Sheffield into CT and back.

Overall, just a fantastic trip and a great place to camp.

Glorious weekend! Dom, John, and his staff welcomed us onto the property and have created an idyllic place to camp. We parked in a camper van at the top of the big field, but the other two sites allow tents. We pre-ordered food to cook directly from the farm and highly recommend the bacon, cheese and fresh produce! The field was private and we brought our own charcoal to cook on a primitive stone firepit that was already on site. We also created a wood campfire inside an old wheel rim that they provided. A trail was conveniently located right next to our site that leads to a beautiful pond nearby. On a clear night, the stargazing on the field is amazing. Lots to do in Sheffield (nearby town) as well - we hiked the Umpachene Falls trail with a swimming hole, ate at the Marketplace, and had beers at Big Elm Brewery. The perfect itinerary. Couldn't recommend this place more!

We had a WONDERFUL time at Moon in the Pond Farm! Arrival/check-in was easy. We were able to drive to the field to unload our car and then drove back out to the parking area and left it there for our stay. We actually chose this location because it showed as "dark" and "quiet" on light/sound maps and wow, we were blown away! Even though it was a full moon weekend, we saw so many stars, including shooting stars! And "quiet" is an understatement - it was completely silent while we were there. We wondered if we'd hear noise from the farm animals but we weren't disturbed at all.
Dom is very friendly and chatted with us our first morning. We had woken up early to walk around and enjoy some of the scenery of the farm and he told us a bit about the animals as he was feeding them. The other staff we interacted with during our stay (picking up food, answering questions about the farm) were also friendly, polite, and hellpful. I think it's worth noting that the staff were always around and helpful when we needed them but otherwise left us alone and we felt that we had a very private stay (which was great!).
We will definitely keep this place in mind for future camping getaways. Highly recommended!

Dom, the host, was fantastic and made this such a memorable trip. The farm itself is beautiful, peaceful, and a great escape from busy everyday life. I would highly recommend this to anyone and hope to return next year.
