Gypsy Wind Farms is raising two unique breeds; Mangalitsa Pigs and Barbados Blackbelly sheep. We have 54 acres backing up to Sumter National Forest. Our Hiking Trails circle pastures, then roll down to the 'bottom land' where there are creeks and great wildlife observation areas. We are 5 miles from Strother Landing on the Broad River and 10 miles from Lake Monticello for swimming, fishing, or boating. We are just minutes away from Sumter National Forest Trails and Parks. There you will find horse riding trails, shooting ranges, etc. We are just minutes away from Palmetto Trail in Pomaria. We have great areas for star-gazing and watching Meteor Showers!
If you'd like to bring your horses, let us know and we will make provisions to provide a separate pasture.
During your visit on the farm, we encourage you to interact with our animals and enjoy the farming life. Collect your eggs from our free-range chickens and ducks, hang out with Annie, Boris and ILean (our pet Mangalitsa Pigs), introduce yourselves to our rams and ewes! Everyone here on the farm loves cookies and Tricuits! And if you're in for it, we can ALWAYS use a hand with chores!
We have a farm store here and sell our naturally-raised Pork, Chicken and Lamb meats. We also have local canned jams, pickles and Honey, grass-fed butter and other goodies. Plan your meals around our chops, brats or a Shoulder Butt for an awesome BBQ weekend! Let us know ahead of time and we can pre-sell the larger cuts and have them thawed and ready for the grill.
At this time, only Site 1 has water/power hookup and it is near the barn, not in the camping area and is rather steep and hard to get level.

Quaint but comfortable
We enjoyed our stay at Gypsy Wind Farms, but this might not be everyone's cup of tea. In all fairness it had rained a good deal prior to our arrival, so the red clay dirt that comprises the majority of the property was all mud. The one advertised site with electric hookups was on a moderate slope which posed a problem as the property has very little gravel or concrete. Fortunately our host provided us with an extension cord, which allowed us to camp at the top of the hill. Even with a small (11ft) trailer the only other potential site available was adjecent to a chicken coop and horse/goat pen. Not sure where the space for 5 RV's would be.
Had a great time exploring the property. Dana (Brad's wife) gave us a bag full of animal treats and we fed goats, pigs, chickens, and a donkey! Plenty of exploring to do.
Although we didn't have a fire ring or trash receptical at the site, we were welcomed to responsibily start a fire wherever and Dana took the small amount of refuse we needed to dispose of.
Stargazing was spectacular, as there is very little ambient lite coming from anywhere nearby. Downside of farm life is when the critters get restless. The potential of barking dogs, braying donkeys and crowing roosters are possible noises you may hear throughout the night.
Gypsy Wind Farm is a very quaint retreat that would be a perfect accommodation for anyone looking to be off the grid.
