Nestled in Pennsylvania Dutch country between a large dairy farm and the Erie National Wildlife Refuge, Too Far Out Farm is favored for its natural beauty and tranquility. Residents of TFO Farm include horses, sheep, and various other friendlies of the canine and feline varieties. You could set your watch by the neighbors' evening visits: a herd of very social dairy cows, who always seem to mosey on down right around supper time every evening.

Speaking of supper, listen for the dinner bell around 6:00 pm while camping at TFO Farm, because owners, Mike and Deb Peterson like to cook for their guests. The grub is often home grown, freshly baked, steamed, roasted and/or barbecued right on the farm. Join us for supper on the wrap-around deck of the main house or eat at your own private campsite.

Currently, we have one primitive campsite (for tents or a small RV), available. No need to worry about nosey or annoying camp neighbors, because we only book one group at a time - YOURS! The campsite includes a fire ring, a limited amount of cut and stacked fire wood, composting toilets and a table for your use. There is room for a smaller rig if you want to bring your RV, riding horses or ATV. We can accommodate up to four of your horses in our outdoor round pen as long as they get along with each other. (Sorry, no sheltered stalls or run-in sheds for the horses, as yet and all horses must have current health papers and documentation of negative coggins test.) Trail riding on the back roads of Penn's woods delights many a visitor all four seasons of the year.

The farm is within walking distance of hiking and cross-country ski trails that meander through the Erie National Wildlife Refuge. Also, Crawford County's best kept secret for Perch, Walleye and Blue Gill fishing (including ice fishing) is a mile away at Sugar Lake. Bring your canoe m, kayak or small boat for a sunset glide through the serene waters of this natural kettle lake and adjacent marshes. If you come for the hunting, (in season) let us know in advance and we will help you secure the proper permits and learn the rules of the refuge.

Speaking of the wildlife, come armed with your binoculars and a good camera. Common sightings include high and low-flying Bald Eagles and other birds of prey, as well as many varieties of colorful, native song birds. You may also encounter other woodland creatures, such as, White-Tail Deer, Black Bears, Coyotes, and of course, smaller furry critters, like raccoons, fox, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, beavers, ground hogs and opossum. Be sure to steer clear of the skunks and the porcupines, though!

Upon request, we will ride along to guide you on a horseback trail ride on the public back roads (minimal traffic - mostly just farm vehicles and tractors, really) surrounding TFO Farm and on the refuge. So bring your well-behaved trail horses (up to 4) and experience this little slice of heaven on earth at Too Far Out Farm!

I loved my stay at Too Far Out farm so much. I wish I had more days to spend with Debbie, Mike, Carrie, and all the beautiful (and well-behaved) animals on the farm. There's a great mix of creatures that live on the land here, but no roosters (so you can sleep in!). Sheep, horses, a goat and dogs (I saw). The campsite is spacious enough for a bunch of tents, an RV, or vandwelling. There's a huge fire pit and lots of wood to burn. It's surrounded by beautiful green fields and there's a great loop to walk or ride that takes you right down to Sugar Lake and back. If you like or have horses than you're particularly in luck here! There's a great composting toilet down away from the house and from camp in a private little spot.

This is a super spacious and friendly place to stay. It's also very near to the Erie National Wildlife Refuge.

Definitely recommended!

Such a beautiful and quiet place to spend a few days. So much green! From my tent, blue skies! Incredible sunrise behind the neighbor's farm. The pasture with a small stream running through it.

We received the warmest welcome by Deb! The location was lovely and the hospitality was without fault. We were treated to lovely home cooked food and company from dogs Roscoe and Fluffy!

The site was well maintained, picturesque and offered an immaculately prepared composting toilet.

Thank you yo our hosts. We wish you all the very best!
