The Facilities

Yes, it is field grass, however.  It is not lush but dry and rocky.  Just roughing it on the pasture.


If you wish to be on grass or have power and water, even sewer,  you can book a site here:

Regrettably, we are unable to accommodate children on the Farmstead. As a working farm, machinery and animals create potential safety for younger people.  We have a minimum age requirement of 18 years. Your understanding in prioritizing the safety of all is greatly appreciated.

We are pleased to accommodate one dog per RV booking.  There is an additional charge extra per night for your furry friend.  We also kindly request your cooperation in adhering to our Doggy Rules, which can be found here.

In the field, the dog must not bark at all, as the area is located within the cow’s pastures.

Yes, we do allow generators, but be respectful of your fellow campers. We will still require quiet time from 10 pm until 7 am. So no generators during the night and only when it is necessary during the day time.

If you are fully self-contained, this is a perfect area for you,  since this area doesn’t have restroom facilities.  There is a short walk to the main campground for the facilities. 

Check-In Time: 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Check-Out Time: 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Yes, we do provide a few picnic tables. This area is a first come first serve open dispursed camping.  We can not guarantee a table.

You have access to the Farmstead Laundry Area, located in the Farmstead Barn Office and offers both a washer and dryer.  We are on the honor system, so bring some extra dollars along, or you can pay with Vemno on-site.

No, this is off-grid.  If you need wifi, be sure to bring your own.

Yes, any guest who is staying more than 2 nights in a nonseptic hook-up can use the dump station for free, when you depart.  Guests staying only one night will be asked to pay a fee.

Quiet time around the Farmstead is from 10 pm until 7 am. Please use soft voices during this time and respect your fellow guests.

The campground is a shared space with other campers and there may be up to 4 RVs on the field. IN addition, you can also enjoy shared use of the garden with both other guests and us, the owners (who you will often find tending and working in the garden). 

Did you know you can pre-order delicious products straight from the farm? Our store includes Wagyu Beef, premium beef, pork, farm-fresh eggs, and many other great products. So whether you are cooking dinner or breakfast, all your pre-ordered items will be waiting for you in the refrigerator or freezer when you arrive, ready to use in your mouth-watering creations >>To find out more, head over to our online store here<<

We do have portables and a shower, they are located in the main campground.  There is a walk to get to the campground from the field. 


Cancellation must be made by the Lead Guest in writing.  If the reservation is canceled before the remaining balance is due, your 25% deposit will be retained but no further charges will be payable.  The full payment will be retained if the reservation is canceled after the balance payment has been made. There will be no refund. We highly recommend the Lead Guest purchase travel insurance so that if the booking has to be canceled at any time they don’t lose any monies under this policy.
