This was the perfect rest stop on my cross-country trip from DC to Denver! I texted with Kristy to let her know when I would be arriving, so she and her two dogs greeted me promptly. She showed me around the property, which includes a couple greenhouses, animals, and lots of natural beauty. There are solar powered lights showing the path to the compost toilet, and there are three basic campsites to choose from. FYI - the property is relatively close to a railway and high speed road, so there was a bit of traffic noise at night, but I didn't have any trouble blocking it out. Overall, it was a perfect place for me to catch a few hours of relaxed sleep.

This was such a wonderful layover on our cross country trip! Kristy and her parents were so lovely and showed us around the farm in the morning. At night the camping was peaceful and quiet and just what we were hoping for!

The Thielen family farm is the perfect place to get acquainted with how your food is grown and raised and offers ample opportunity to entertain your kids (or the kid inside you). During our stay we were treated with hospitality by Kristy and her family.

We spent most of our time at the produce gardens perusing the crops and saying hello to plethora of farm animals. There's chicken, goats, horses, bunnies...pretty much everything you'd expect on an old-time family farm.

Kristy's organic gardens are tucked between the Shell Creek and her father's endless cornfields. You're able to setup camp right next to the three green houses and fields of produce next to the creek. There's a fire pit next, which Kristy's father kept going through the night, and a nice sized picnic table and an outdoor sink to do your dishes. Pretty much everything you need to camp in comfort.

Just beyond the greenhouses is a little shack with a compost toilet and a recently added outdoor shower. The shower I took after a few sultry days of camping was damn refreshing.

We were able to purchase farm fresh eggs, cucumbers (which my daughter devoured) and red cabbage. In the morning we cooked the eggs right on the farm. It was a perfect way to end our stay at the Thielen Produce Gardens.

It was a great location, just outside Omaha, NE. They had a ton of different kinds of produce and animals on the farm! They had an outdoor shower, compost toilet, and plumbed toilet. They offered coffee and produce! Very friendly host and showed us around even though we came in late. Glad I was able to find an affordable option to sleep and see the Eclipse Totality!

We had a great time camping at RNR- The hosts were all extremely kind and welcoming, the campsite was private, next to a winding creek and plenty of farm animals, the town is a quick bike ride away- very small town with lots of character- very fun to check out. We bought some veggies from the farm during our stay - it was really convenient to be able to buy fresh vegetables (and eggs!) on site. Overall I highly recommend staying at this site

Such a unique experience for the Midwest! Im so glad I bypassed the crowded, generic RV parks in the area and stayed here overnight instead.
I have been dry camping with my vintage airstream from California to Iowa and Kristi was very accommodating to my last minute reservation (two hours prior to arrival). She is warm, welcoming, and passionate about her niche organic produce farm.

On arrival, she directed our airstream in her driveway next to the greenhouses and we immediately were swept away on a farm tour as the sun dipped down for the day. Chickens, goats, sheep, ducks, and the most playful and kid-friendly Great Pyrenees pup all live on the farm.

There was a composting toilet and a regular toilet available and an outdoor shower warmed by solar in the hose. The mosquitoes were out on our evening, so be prepared with bug repellent should you camp. My kids chased lightening bugs and picked mulberries with Kristi and loved touring the farm the next morning on her golf cart!

Overall an absolutely lovely experience and I will look forward to a return visit. Thank you Thielen Farms!

Super friendly and cute farm. I bought some yummy tomatoes and yogurt from the farm before I took off. Thanks for having me, Kristy!
