Pitch your tent in our woods or fields on our 130 acre organic heirloom vegetable seed farm. Plenty of space for great hiking opportunities and privacy. 12 minutes or less from downtown Ann Arbor. If requested in advance and if we have time, farm produce is for sale and sometimes farm-to-table meals can be arranged in advance for a suggested donation of $15+.  The most likely days for a farm lunch would be on Thursdays or Fridays.  Please request a farm lunch before arriving and we'll see if we can accommodate you. We also sell fruit trees and vegetable seeds. We are an organic farm so it's very important to practice proper sanitation and not to leave your waste here on our land (no foxholes - do not bury your waste, pack it out!).  Additionally, there is a truck stop just 1/2 mile away with showers and bathrooms. We have bundles of firewood for sale for $10 or for larger quantities it's $25/quarter face cord or $100/facecord. 

Please keep in mind that we are a working farm not a campground with formal grounds.  We offer hipcamp spaces in addition to the many other things we do on and off the farm and we are very busy people so please understand that we may not always be available for tours, meals, produce sales, or special requests.

Site 1 is our main site.  It's in the woods, has firewood for sale, plenty of space for tents, has a table and some benches and feels secluded.  It's relatively close to the portapotty.  Sometimes this site is closed for special events.

Site 2 is another main site, but less developed.  It's far enough from campsite 1 to be it's own campsite, but close enough to be it's satellite.  It has firewood for sale.  At your request, we can provide a table and chairs.  It's relatively close to the portapotty.  Sometimes this site is closed for special events.

Site 3 is on the west side of edge of the woods overlooking a hay field to the west. It's far enough from campsite 1 to be it's own campsite, but close enough to be it's satellite.  It's a great spot if you want to have a sunset view, but don't want the early morning sun.  It has firewood for sale.  At your request, we can provide a table and chairs.  It's relatively close to the portapotty.

Site 4 is in the woods between sites 1 and 2.  It's far enough from campsite 1 to be it's own campsite, but also close enough to be it's satellite.  It has firewood for sale. At your request, we can provide a table and chairs.  It's relatively close to the portapotty.

Site 5 is a 5-10 minute hike from the farmstead and is on the edge of a field and faces east with morning sun and has shade in the afternoon and evening.  It has firewood for sale.  At your request, we can provide a table and chairs..  It is a 10 minute walk to the portapotty so plan to pack your waste out or go for an early morning run.

Site 6 is a secluded site in the Northwest corner of a field and at the top of a hill.  A 10-15 minute hike from the farmstead, it sits at the top of a hill with a beautiful view to the South.  You will likely hear coyotes at night and get a great view of the stars here.  At your request, we can provide a table and chairs.  It is a 10 minute walk to the portapotty so plan to pack your waste out or go for an early morning run.

Site 7 is a secluded site on the north side of a field and at the top of a hill.

We camped here this past weekend. The grounds are beautiful and Mike hosted an amazing lunch for our family. Kiwi is the sweetest pup and your fowl were so funny to watch. I started looking for them in the morning as they came by just to watch their antics.

Mike also took care of getting firewood secured and delivered for us (we reimbursed him) as well as having the portapotty we ordered placed in a great location. He was a wonderful host.

We will be back. Thank you so much for hosting us! Really a wonderful experience!

I've camped here twice now. The first time was with my family over Father's Day weekend, the second was a month later for an annual "guys weekend". In both cases it was a great experience.

This was our 14th or 15th year for our guys weekend. We were fed up with the typical campground situation where quiet hours start at 11 p.m., we like to stay up past 11:01. And the ninja rangers that pop up out of the woods telling us that our decibels have exceeded the maximum whisper level normally allotted. So we looked for a better scenario.... and found it.

Mike helped us out with referrals for fire wood delivery (good job Brian!) and a porta potty. We stayed 3 nights and were only able to burn through 5 face cords.... give or take a log. Did I mention we like bonfires?

Another thing for my group was privacy and not having to deal with other campers (especially at 7 a.m. when we just went to sleep). Mike's property is exactly what we were looking for. If you decide to camp here, be respectful of the property. If you bring it in, pack it out. We're coming next year and I want the site clean.

Good job Mike, see you next year.

The farm was beautiful, with delicious fresh produce, and there was a large cleared area surrounded by trees to pitch a tent. Highly recommended.

I arrived with a compact camper van and found a perfect spot in Michael’s adjacent hayfield and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. A bonus for my stay was getting a tour of the farm including seeing how shiitake mushrooms are grown. Great location!

Beautiful site on a beautiful property cared for by some super cool people - farmers make the world go round. I could go on forever but I'll simply say that this is your nice quiet refuge from a town just minutes away. Loved it, thank you so much Mike (and Kiwi!)
