Other things to note
This is not a place for people who are uncomfortable with nature!!! If you scare at the sight of bugs, dirt, and animals, you should consider accommodations elsewhere. It's a jungle out here...ticks are a real thing. Be prepared for a full nature immersion experience. We offer various in-season farm products for sale. Firewood is available for no cost, but we do accept tips for the hard working wood splitter and stacker.
Please arrive well before dark, and arrange a check out time with us. We have a dog and chickens, turkeys, guineas, as well as cats. Some may meander by your direction. It's a fully functioning permaculture farm, and though you are tucked away, and have some level of privacy, you may see or hear farm activities. Please no drunken brawls or political jerrymandering. We appreciate mellow nights. Please respectfully leave the schoolie-home in tidy condition when you are done with it. Use no toxic substances while here on the land...only biodegradable soaps, and such. :) Absolutely no smoking inside of the bus. If you'd like to smoke outside, please leave behind no litter.
