We live about 35 miles from tupelo ms. We raise catfish, and are in the process of trying to make life a little more relaxing..( is that possible??) We have two young energetic young men who will be stepping in and renting our fish ponds, so hopefully we can travel more. We also have a herd of cattle, plus a few chickens & a bossy rooster.
We can tell you about raising catfish!

S n B RV'n stopped by for a snooze and run. Great guests, on the way home. We had to leave early for a forgotten dental appointment. Only got to visit for a few minutes, but were fun to talk to!
We enjoyed meeting and hosting S n B. They were delightful. We wish we had been more available to visit with them. Very curtious, we would host them again anytime.
We had a great visit with S n B they are welcome back any time
What a nice host and place to spend the night. Very easy to get to. Nice place to park with 30A hookup. We will request to stay next time we are in this area.
We had a really nice stay at their place. They were so kind and generous with us. If we return to the area, we will not hesitate to return to see them. If you are lucky enough to be hosted by them, you will not regret it.
Even though the weather has been terrible our host still greeted us with a site that was easy to access. Didn’t get to visit with them very long but enjoyed the short time we had. Will definitely keep this BW site on the list to stop at again. Thanks again!!!
What a location owned by such kind people! Bonnie was helpful with directions and communicative throughout my quick stay. I only wish I had not been stuck on work calls while there because I could tell how lovely it would have been to spend more time talking to this couple!
Yellow flowers marking a lush green landscape as views of catfish ponds and cattle hang to the left and right! Perfect way to wake up in the morning.
I would definitely stay here again in the future. Hopefully for longer than 18 hours! And, I would bring there sweet German shepherd a treat.
Contacted at the last minute due to the fact that where we were to stay was too wet. They welcomed us with open arms in the dark and we had a nice visit. This is what boondockers is all about people helping people and enjoying their company. Too bad we only stayed one night as we would of liked to of learned about catfish farming. Lovely farm and listening to the rooster crowing in the morning and the purple Martin's chirping made it all that more special. Thank you for taking us at the last minute. Stay in touch

The hosts farm is very easy to find and is in a lovely rural setting. They greeted us on arrival, helped us park up and provided us with electricity/water hook ups. We had a great chat in the morning and the host even gave us some homemade bread and jam, delicious!! We only stayed one night with the hosts (we had to leave early the next morning) but we wished we could have stayed longer! We highly recommend staying here.
Steve and Bonnie were the most friendly hosts you can ask for. Steve gave me some great pointers on how to attach my sway bars better and Bonnie was a very, out going, friendly hostess you can ask for.There beautiful cattle/catfish farm was the most quiet place you can stay at. Even their German Shepard puppy was the most friendly creature, that loves to play. if we ever go back to this area, we will for sure stop by and stay a night or two. Thanks Bonnie and Steve.
We suggest that you not stay with this couple as your first bw hosts. They are so lovely you will be ruined for bw hosts forever. Their property is gorgeous, the spot is perfect and we can't say enough about what a fun, interesting couple they are. We hope to stay friends forever.
Make sure to ask him why he wears suspenders.
One of the most beautiful places I've stayed. The hosts were very nice and I enjoyed spending time chatting. The views were incredible and the sunset was amazing. I can't say anything but positive about this place. Easy access and lots of privacy, peace and quiet with lots of nature sounds. I would go back here any time. Thank you for your kindness!
We stayed with this host for one night with our Chrysler minivan camper, in their huge farmyard. Although not as secluded as we normally like to be, the hosts were very gracious, and were familiar with my wife's home town area. We had a good visit on their back porch. Unfortunately, it started pouring down rain as we were finishing our packing the next morning, and we didn't get to say goodbye, but would definitely stay here again if we pass this way.
After a long day on the road, it was really nice to see a smiling face. Steve greeted us right away and set us up in a great area at their place. Wished we could have stayed longer to visit - they were so accommodating and just what needed! And, the purple martins are gorgeous!
Great experience to be hosted by Steve and Bonnie. Excellent hosts, very friendly, good chat in the morning after (about everything). Steve showed us the catfish ponds and his daily concern, what was very interesting. We’re happy to have met these guys, we thank them so much and wish them all the best, retired or not yet.
Such lovely and gracious people! Very easy to talk to, very informative- I learned a lot about catfish farming!! Beautiful home and yard. How lovely to sleep by the lullaby of the frogs and waken to the animated chatter of the birds! Highly recommend this stop!!
We stayed with our hosts on May 4th, 2018 with our minivan camper. They were very friendly hosts, and we found many things in common, since they were familiar with our northern Indiana heritage. We had a nice evening visit after dinner, but it started pouring rain the next morning. They were gracious enough to allow us to get our van under a roof so we could complete our packing up without getting wet, and we really appreciated that. We would definitely recommend this country setting on a large commercial farm, and will request another stay if we pass that way again. It was a very pleasant experience!
We loved staying here. The hosts are incredibly kind and the scenery is gorgeous. And we loved watching all the birds— they’re abundant here!
We were greatly blessed to meet Steve and Bonnie at the Catfish Farm. They were so warm and welcoming. We had the opportunity to learn a lot about catfish and the process of feeding and harvesting the fish. They had been caring for 2 of their grandchildren who's mother had given birth the day before. The accommodations were wonderful with the ability to view acres and acres of pond, trees, cattle and sky. We treasure Bonnie and Steve and consider them very dear friends.
