What to Bring
Yes! This is a real camping experience! The Farm has soft mowed fields, shady orchards and forests where our staff and families make their tent homes for the week. Please bring the basics for tent camping: a tent (or two!) for your family, sleeping bags, and air mattresses. We have limited hook ups for campers/rv's. If you would like to bring any type of vehicle for camping, please contact Doug and let him know. Thank you!
