A Homesteader of 35 years, organic gardener and keeper our 170 acre farm

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

We are Marc and Harriet Carey. We met when we were
15, dated in high school and have been married
for forty seven years. Here at Steepleview Farm
we raised two fine sons, acres of crops,
hundreds of cattle, and a lot of wonderful pets.

We started homesteading here 35 years ago.
We studied, learned and used the old time methods
of clearing the land and farming with hand tools.

Besides canning, freezing and preserving our own
wonderful food we also learned the art of smoking meats,
curing hams, and the ancient art of fermentation.

With our children grown and raised, and grandchildren
arriving, we began thinking of how we might use the farm
in a way more suited to our love of home grown,
all natural, NON-GMO pesticide free food.

We traveled across the United States in search of the best,
healthiest and most flavorful food in America
and what we found was a wonderful community
of newly interested people dedicated to farm to table
programs, exactly what we’d been doing all along.

We are blessed beyond our wildest dreams to have made
Steepleview Farm our home. And are thrilled to share
the blessings of our little piece of heaven with you.

Great stay!

Arrived on a drizzly evening and stayed one night. The host asked me to call when I was close so he could meet me upon arrival. He drove a golf cart and led me right to a parking spot.
Super friendly people and a good place to boondock. Woke up to a gorgeous day with a beautiful view.
We visited the chickens and fed a carrot to the horses.
Such a picturesque location!

Fantastic view

What a fantastic view - a great place to try out our solar for the first time - hi up on a hill with a wonderful view of the church steeple. We loved listening to the songs of the coyotes at night - highly recommend this wonderful boondocking site

Very pleasant and welcoming host

Lovely view, place to walk and experience farm life and buy produce. We were busy sightseeing elsewhere so couldn’t take full advantage of our surroundings. We’ll definitely come back again to do that.

Beautiful location.

Nice place to stay. There were several guests, and we enjoyed visiting with them. The location is beautiful, watching the sunrise over the church steeple. There was plenty of room, with parking for a variety of rigs, small and large.

Peaceful And Produce

What more could you ask for. A very peaceful stay and we purchased some wonderful produce while we were there. Very nice hosts and we went to The Ark Encounter not far away during our stay. They had some great knowledge for growing a garden too!

Beautiful Land and Gracious Hosts

Wow! What an experience! It is obvious from the moment you pull up to Steepleview Farm that Mark and his wife have spent quite a bit of time and money to accommodate RVs of every size. There are large open fields with white gravel driveways to ensure easy pull through access.

The land is well maintained with many garden plots (the RV parking was near the sunflower plot). Mark and his wife were very welcoming and invited us to explore the grounds including the barn where the horses are, the chicken coop, their produce stand (where we bought two jars of their homemade salsa), and the miles of hiking trails spread throughout their 100+ acres of land.

We arrived in a 22 foot camper being towed by a Toyota 4runner. We overheard Mark mention that they had someone arriving in a 40 class C with a trailer in tow. They will have no problem accommodating any size RV. We had between 2 and 3 bars of Verizon 4G cell coverage.

Great place to stay

Had a wonderful stay at their beautiful farm. Good parking site, we purchased fresh vegetables from their farm stand.
The host were very friendly,
We enjoyed a beautiful sunset sitting in their field next to the beautiful sunflowers.
We will definitely be stopping there again.
