My husband and I have been looking at this listing for months - attracted by the prospect of a relaxing hot tub. Well, we had a great opportunity to book this site..... on one of the hottest, most humid days of the year. So, we did not try the hot tub. Luckily for us, Kokomo Farms is a sort distance away from multiple cool springs to jump into and cool off, and Greg and Trudy both recommended their favorites, which we excitedly explored during both days of our visit.
Their property is stunning and there are so many creative, magical nooks and crannies in the trees to explore (just keep an eye out for friendly banana spiders guarding pathways).
My husband and I both look forward to another visit in cooler weather.
My husband and I were in the process of moving across several states and we excitedly picked out Homefield Advantage Farmstead as our first Hipcamp destination! It looked like a peaceful place to set up camp and relax amidst the chaos of moving.
One of the primary reasons we picked Homefield was it's proximity - only a short 6 hour drive from our hotel the night previously. We'd get there in plenty of time to set up a tent, make ourselves dinner, and meet some of the adorable farm residents! Well, that didn't exactly turn out as expected. Our 6 hour drive somehow turned into 9, and we arrived well after dark. Jennifer gave excellent directions and very graciously forgave our late arrival time.
We slept soundly, surrounded by glowing stars and the comforting clucks of the guinea hens. It did get a little chilly for us, so having a real heated bathroom with plumbing was a wonderful addition. We did not take advantage of the shower, but having access to it was certainly a plus.
When we woke the next morning, our hosts showed us the path to walk around and see all of the animals. It was fun watching the guinea hens as well as the sheep following Jennifer’s steps eagerly begging for food. And of course we visited in the perfect time to see the new springtime additions to the farm - the babies! The goats are pretty adorable, but our favorites were the pigs - giant pigs, midsize pigs, and the cutest baby pigs you can imagine.
We had to leave way too soon, but Homefield Advantage Farmstead was definitely a highlight of our move. We’re going to remember this the next time we make our way through northern Florida. Thank you for welcoming us to your beautiful farm!
