We had a great time!

We had a great time here. We arrived on the 4th of July, and our hosts offered to take us to town for music and fireworks. We got rained out, but it was a lot of fun anyway. Plus a nice drive around the area, lots of talk about boondocking, and a tour of the farm. Really quiet night, plus electricity! Definitely recommend stopping if you are in this area.

Beautiful quiet farm

This is a perfect place to wander and explore, we were welcomed immediately on our arrival and the hospitality did not stop there.
We went for a ATV ride around the back roads and stopped by the river.
We were treated to fresh food straight from the garden and I’ll be baking for days as a result.
Thanks for opening up your world to us and the great conversations.
We will stop by again if we come back through x wonderful hosts and we are very happy to have met them.

Ideal boondocker location!

We enjoyed our stay with Quiet Farm, wished it was more than just overnight. Would like to spend more time with these interesting and giving people! Hope to host them sometime. Oh, and yes, it IS a QUIET farm!!

A Great Experience

We were passing through and just wanted a Quiet Farm to boondock on instead of another noisy parking lot. This place fit the bill for that and more. I had a potentially dangerous problem with my rv and was able to "help" Mr. E fix it. Truth be told, I mostly watched. The small town is beautiful and the Quiet Farm is even more so. Very friendly folks that we learned a lot from. Since they were leaving the same day as us we even got overloaded with fresh veggies. I would love to see more of MN and when I do I definitely hope to spend more time at Quiet Farm.

A Wonderful Couple!

We can't even express how wonderful this experience was. Our hosts welcomed us like family. We had great chats, a tour of the town, a couple of shared meals, fresh vegetables, ATV rides and E's awesome technical expertise, networking and labor in repairing a faulty motorcycle rack on the RV! Their genuine warmth and caring made this a special time! An added bonus was a nice, level, gravel parking space with electrical hookup in a beautiful setting! Thanks so much!

Turned out to be more than just a boondocking spot!

It had to be fate that I stayed at Quiet Farm and met these two! It was my first experience with Boondockers Welcome, and will forever hold a special place in my heart! Without getting too sappy, even with our 50+ age gap, this couple and I became fast friends. My stay at their beautiful property was amazing, they are gracious hosts and very fun! They love to chat and go on ATV rides and even gave me some fresh produce from their garden! I ended up gaining new grandparents from my stay, I feel very blessed to have met them! I couldn't recommend them more, it is a very peaceful spot.

So much FUN

We had such a good time at Quiet Farm. Our hosts were unbelievably gracious and accommodating, and we felt that we made two new friends in the short time we were in Blue Earth. We will hopefully return someday.

One of Our Best Stops

We only stayed with Quiet Farm for just one evening, but had our travel circumstances been different we would have stayed as long as we could.

We met them at the county fair while watching a polka band, and I knew this would be a great experience. Their generosity and hospitality was immense. We got to go on an ATV ride, pick some tomatoes from their garden, and get a great feel for these two wonderful folks.

We hope to see them again down the road, and wish these two wonderful people happy trails.

Still Smiling

What a lovely couple! We stayed here for a few days in June 2017, and our hosts were absolutely wonderful. They treated us like we had been friends forever! We may have to pass through the area again, just so we can stay with them! There was plenty of room for our 40-footer, and they had electric available. They even arranged for us to do a local radio show about area visitors. We had such a nice time, we can't help but smile whenever we talk about our stay here.
