Situated in a secluded meadow accessible through a forest trail, this campground is surrounded by verdant hardwood forests, beautiful hiking trails, and abundant wildlife. You'll fall in love with this campsite, located just up the hill from the fields and pastures of our farm, which overlooks the First Branch of the White River.

This is a great option for everyone from individuals or couples to large groups or gatherings to find a secluded place for privacy and rejuvenation. Contact us if you are interested in planning a large group gathering or event at our farm and campgrounds, and we'll be happy to work with you to make your stay as successful as possible.

Free Verse Farm is a hilltop herb farm run by two art-making, herb-loving farmers. The property boasts twenty sloping, knoll-laden, open acres overlooking the scenic village of Chelsea, Vermont. We have incredible views and forest trails that offer magical woodland wanderings.

We also invite you to explore our cultivated fields of herbs and vegetables and become acquainted with the wide variety of tea, culinary, and medicinal herbs that we grow and process on our farm. You can also visit with our friendly flock of chickens and the cows that spend their summer munching our delicious green pastures. Our full line of herbal products are for sale out of our farmhouse apothecary. Seasonal vegetables, meat, and eggs may also be for sale.

For amenities we offer a hot outdoor shower & sink, as well as an outhouse with a composting toilet, and picnic table. (Firepit coming soon!)

The town of Chelsea hosts a weekly summer farmers market, Fridays May through September, and is also home to a pub (The Wagon Wheel), two town greens, a small library, and a general store. Within 30-45 minutes of our farm you can reach the larger towns of Montpelier (state capital), South Royalton, Woodstock, and the Upper Valley Region (Dartmouth College), all of which offer a wide variety of attractions and services. Upon your arrival you will be given a welcome packet with information about our area and we'll be happy to provide you with any other tips you're looking for.

We look forward to hosting campers and sharing our love of this land with all who visit. We can't wait to meet you!

    Free Verse Farm is so wonderful! This area of VT is so beautiful and the farm was such a lovely spot to camp. The farm was beautiful and had an amazing view of the valley below. We also bought some marvelous tea and enjoyed a lovely cup from the top of the mountain. When they say you should have 4wd, they aren't kidding, but getting up into the Secret Meadow was worth it.
