We're a growing, sustainably minded farm on the outskirts of Austin. Close enough to attend ACL Festival and SxSW, but far enough to see stars, hear wildlife at night, and breath clean, fresh air. You'll have access to 19+ acres to pick your own camp site. Bring your own tent or use ours (6-8 person). Get to know our friendly miniature cattle, lovable goats, and erratically

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We have two words for you: miniature cows. There are miniature cows on this farm. No, really. When you pull up, make sure you pull the gate shut behind you so that you don’t let the animals out. They peeked out at us from behind tall grass and cacti and watched as we drove our van down the pebble road where we met our hosts.
Ryan and his partner are currently living on the property in their van and are in the process of making their dream come true. So far they’ve put up a barn-like structure with a shower out back and as well as a composting toilet. There’s also little triangular chicken coop houses on the property and a big ol’ pen of goats!
Our hosts showed us to their favorite campsite just a short walk from the main area of the farm but far enough that you had ample privacy. It’s a level spot with a bunch of mesquite in the background that makes it seem wild and plenty of firewood for you to have a really nice evening solo or among friends. We also liked the idea of camping right next to the small pond they had on the property.
For those of you traveling in a van, there's several good and level places for you to park as well. We chose the spot over near the chickens!
We highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a getaway not too far from downtown Austin and you want both a farm and a wilderness experience.
The absolute perfect Labor Day Weekend getaway from Houston life. It was in the high 90’s all weekend, but we would not have changed a single thing about our experience.
My boyfriend and I brought our tent and (per hosts suggestion) chose a wonderful spot tucked away with a great view. Our spot was a great balance between shade and sun - enough openings to see the stars at night but enough shade to keep us from frying. We felt like we had the entire land to ourselves (which I have never experienced at any State Park). The land is also very well maintained, and our host mowed a fresh path for us to our campsite.
The most hilarious and friendly pigs, goats and cows roamed the land, and these animals could not have been more curious and well behaved. The animals gave us our space, but let us interact with them when desired. One night we were able to feed the cows and goats some treats, which was a fun surprise.
There was a burn ban in place during our stay, but thankfully our hosts had a charcoal grill that we were able to use to do all of our cooking.
We used the outdoor shower available (which was a lifesaver given the heat!). The hosts had a compostable toilet we were invited to use, but there was also there was plenty of privacy to …”go” au naturale style.
Our stay was such an adventure, and exceeded all expectations. We 100% would recommend a visit, and hope to make it back sometime!
