Our 3 day rustic Vermont itinerary with our kids

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. 🙂

If you haven’t camped on a farm with your kids, you’re doing it wrong.

If you’re thinking about camping with your kids, or anywhere for that matter, you should strongly consider camping on a farm.  The evolution of the sharing economy has now reached a level of creative genius that I tip my hat to, without dumping half my paycheck.  What started with renting otherwise free afternoons to TaskRabbit or leasing spare bedrooms on Airbnb has now evolved into “Go ahead and pitch your tent on that little corner of my farm.”  

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.

How to travel more with kids
