Earlier this week, we posted about how the sharing economy produced another awesome idea of camping at farms. We came upon this gem while researching ways to level up our family camping experience while exploring nearby Vermont. As a family of 5 with a baby, a toddler, and a 5-year-old living in NYC, aka the city that never sleeps, we didn’t think our little attention spans would survive a secluded campsite off in the woods. The RV campground style camping with playgrounds and video games and overcrowding is too contrived for us though so we started researching a good middle ground. Enter Farm Camping. We came, we tried, and we fell in love with the experience.
Read along for details of our Vermont farm camping itinerary along with a few tips and recommendations. We spent a lot of time speaking to camp hosts and locals to curate the experience, but none of the content on this page is sponsored. 🙂Read more

Read along for an overview of how we got into this stroke of genius, how to find a good campsite near you, whether you’re in Vermont as we were or not, as well as other activities to pair with all of the fun you’ll have on the farm.Read more
