We strive to be as unrestrictive as possible. If you have needs, not covered by this Boondockers host description, ask us and we will try to accommodate you.
This is a working farm located on the oldest road in Florida. We mostly produce round bale hay in the summer months. The land is a mixture of pastures and woods.
All pets are welcome. No leashes required. We have no fences so you are responsible for keeping your critters from running off. You can bring horses, dogs, cats, pet elephants or whatever.
We cannot offer electric at this time because our power is from solar-generated electricity. We barely produce enough to run the house and farm. A dump station is available. A water faucet is available so you can fill your onboard fresh water tank. A couple of the many areas suitable for camping have a water faucet you can hook up to.
WiFi is available but the range is limited. It works in one of the suitable camping areas. Ask for access.
It is rural, it is a farm, do whatever you want. A little common sense and courtesy are all that is required.
We are less than 10 minutes from interstate I-75. Paved roads to within a country block of the farm and then a lime rock road to the farm's main gate. It is no problem for our 40-foot diesel pusher motorhome.
We have plenty of roomy areas to camp that requires no backing in or out. The pond offers flat ground and a nice view but a couple of guests have said the frogs make noise. There are plenty of other places to set up, just ask.

This is a very peaceful spot, so quiet and pretty. Exceptional hosts! They asked us to their square dance club. We were exhausted and passed on the invitation but we slept the whole night through and it was heaven. Thanks so much.
We had a fabulous stay at BarnQuiltFarm, our host was just great and invited us Square Dancing which we enjoyed along with another lovely boon docking couple from Nova Scotia, at the evening we where lucky to meet an accommodating friendly community. The site was large and we could pick where we wanted to park up. Great roads for running on too, quiet and hard packed sand.
Host met us at the gate, with a warm smile and a greeted our dog Sage with affection. He pointed out a few spots for us to set up to take advantage of our solar system. We were invited, along with another boondocking family staying here to attend his local Square Dance Club and had a blast. Unfortunately we were not able to meet Bill's wife, as she was away during our visit. Perhaps next time we travel through this area we will have the pleasure. Easy spot to access with our 32 foot Southwind and tow vehicle. Nice to have water and dump station those are always a bonus. Thank you again Bill. Maybe we can one day host you in Nova Scotia.
The hosts @ Emerald Oaks are down to earth friendly and their little patch of country is a relaxing location with easy access. Thank you, Emerald Oaks!
Enjoyed the country side and property! Had good conversation and a bike ride with the host Debbie. Loved being in the countryside. The frogs by the pond were not bothersome to me, I'm a big nature fan, so... :) Thanks very much for hosting me!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. We were greeted warmly at the gate and shown numerous locations we could choose to park. There was ample space to walk and exercise and let our puppy explore. We will definitely be back. Thank you both!
Our hosts welcomed us at the gate to their property even though it was after dark, and gave us several options for parking our rig. It's unfortunate that we only stayed one night, because they were so friendly, the area is quiet and pretty, with plenty of space for our kids to run and play.
BarnQuiltFarm was an amazing host! Making sure everything was good during our stay and told us of area sites to see while we were there as well. It is a dirt road, but very manageable and well worth the trip. He let us park where we needed to maximize our solar intake. They were wonderful with our kids and our dogs. It's a very peaceful property and we enjoyed listening to the frogs at night. A great host for sure! We can't wait to visit again!
We just arrived and we love already and plan to return some day. We can only spend one night but it is wonderful. The bullfrogs can be a tad noisy :). Loved it. Even got to visit with another boondocker family staying here at the same time. Thanks for opening your farmstead for others to enjoy. Tom and Joyce.
Such a welcoming place. A huge field to choose from. Friendly hosts, we almost went square dancing! Thank you so much for your hospitality.
This was our first time with Boondockers welcome and we were BarnQuitFarms's first guest! We were greeted by the owner who showed us around the property, and recommended different spots to park. He was very nice and made us feel very welcomed. We were able to see horses and cows just walking down the street, which the kids loved. His wife was just a peach with the kids. This is place is very relaxing and will definitely be coming back! Im glad our first experience was with this lovely couple and am very grateful for their hospitality.
