We came here to camp and pitch a tent but it started raining aggressively. The owners were super nice and let us sleep in their greenhouse which was actually a really good experience that we did not know we needed. The grounds were super cool with lots of things growing.

This place is great! We camped for two nights, we got the farm tour and wood carving demonstration and our family loved it. During the day we went for a hike at the Holmes Educational Forest and explored Brevard a bit but we also spent a good deal of time at the campsite because it was easy and relaxed. Eric and Wendy and their kids were there to greet us when we arrived which made us feel so welcomed, and when they left we had the place to ourselves and that was nice as well. The outhouse was very tidy, there was clean water from the hose, and a power outlet on the campsite. Our two kids, ages 3 and 6, loved gathering kindling and we bought firewood there for $5. Easy peasy! I also bought some of Wendy's kombucha (yum!) and some of their elderberry syrup. Our 6 year old is really into woodcarving and so the demonstration from Andrew was really special. These folks have set up a beautiful and impressive farm with interesting and delicious berries. They are very friendly and also respectful of your space, communication was excellent. It's not in the middle of the woods (because it's literally on the farm) and so there is some street noise but we slept well and enjoyed having the site to ourselves! This is a great place for families or if you're looking for easy car camping. I highly recommend it!

This was a lovely place to camp for the night! I was welcomed by Wendy and her daughter and they gave me a tour of their farm where they grow delicious, high antioxidant berries. The campsite is on a private section of the farm, and you have the entire place to yourself at night. The outhouse was very clean, they have potable water, and they even have an outlet nearby if you need to charge anything overnight. Highly recommended!

This was my first Hipcamp stay and it far exceeded my expectations! Eric and family have done a great job creating and maintaining the campsite/farm and made us feel welcome. It was a short drive to downtown Brevard, but still felt secluded. We especially liked the fire ring, outhouse, and visit from the farm cat! Highly recommend.

Absolutely wonderful! This was the first time camping with 3 kids (16, 5 & 4) & we couldn't have asked for a better setup. They have chickens, a greenhouse & wood carvings all around. The kids loved checking for eggs every morning. We also did the wood carving demonstration & it didn't disappoint. Would definitely come back!

PS.... The kombucha was top notch! 👍

Staying at this gorgeous berry farm was an absolute joy. The hosts were kind, knowledgeable with good recommendations for the area, and were they if we needed them but also gave our group privacy. The tours were very engaging and informative. The site itself was very clean, had great space for setting up tents, a cozy fire pit setup, a sunset viewing area, access to electricity if needed, and honestly one of the best camping bathrooms I have ever experienced! It was secluded and private but easily accessible by car. Truly a unique and welcoming place to stay and my group and I are thankful to have had the privilege of sharing this family's little slice of paradise with them.

Always good to connect with organic farmers, and learn a little as you go. Eric and Wendy were very accommodating and friendly. We enjoyed getting to know about their farm and the local area. We hope to experience more of what the pub hub has to offer in the future.

Our stay at the Pucker Up Berry Farm was amazing! Eric was very quick to respond to any messages and questions leading up to the trip. Upon arrival, we briefly met Eric and his son and they both gave us a short tour and orientation. Eric was super kind and personable. They then left us to our own private farm. The layout exceeded our expectations. The land was secluded from people, noise, etc. Eric had two chairs setup for us to watch the sunset and overlook the farm from atop the property. The campsite was beautiful. A fire pit, outhouse, and Eric's brother Andrew's amazing wood chainsaw carvings.

On our second day their we got a private axe throwing lesson from Andrew and Rachel, both showed up right at the agreed upon time and were the MOST friendly. Hannah and I were nervous because it was our first time throwing axes and they quickly turned us into pros. The whole experience was a blast! We also got to pick flowers and sample some ground cherries. They had farm eggs and kombucha as add ons at the time of year we went (not sure if thats year round.) We fell in love with hearing Ivan the rooster and becoming friends with Garp the farm kitty (we affectionately referred to him as Yoshi before learning his name. We miss you Yoshi!) Andrew and Rachel were super knowledgable and clued us in on many tidbits and stories about mountain life that really added to the experience.

There was plenty of fire wood for only $5 a bundle. We kept the fire going all night two nights in a row.

The whole experience was amazing. We came from the coast (both working on computers all day) and it was the PERFECT weekend of being unplugged and just sitting and reading in the BEAUTIFUL mountains. You can tailor the experience to be as guided or as secluded as you'd like, from what I could discern. We had the best mix.

We would definitely recommend. We felt like part of the Pucker Up Berry Farm family and will definitely be back.
