Wonderful hosts. Great location.
This family was very impressive. They all pitched in to run the Empty Pockets Ranch.
The animals were very amusing. We enjoyed watching the various animals and visiting with the family.
The products they sell are excellent. We bought a bundle for ourselves and gifts for others.
Definitely will return when in the area.

Delightful stay!

We stayed 2 nights with them and really loved our stay. They have critters galore there and the various sounds were incredible. Chickens, geese (or were they ducks?) and guineas visited us daily and they entertained our cat while he sat in the window. They have 4 really sweet dogs that run free and like the mini pot belly pigs, they're very friendly and sociable. They also have a store on the property where they sell all sorts of things from homemade soaps and BBQ sauces to farm eggs and velvety chocolate milk. The best part is the family is truly genuine and they are good people. Even though there's always something that needs to be done on a farm, we were able to talk a lot with them and get to know them. We definitely look forward to coming back and visiting them again.

Beautiful Farm!

We had a really nice time at Empty Pockets Ranch. They were very welcoming and we could tell that they love it when RVers stay there. Another fantastic Boondockers Welcome visit!
