Several of our breeds are listed on the Slow Foods Ark of Taste. Our farm practices invite loads of wildlife, including herons, fox, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, deer, bald eagles, red-tailed hawk, and more.

Things to do during on farm camping
Some of the things you can do at Redemption Springs during on farm camping include: Walk around the farm, watch the livestock, and the wildlife. Also, we have a stream area with a Blue Heron that frequents its banks, and a family of very vocal Red-Tailed Hawks makes the trees their home. Besides, many deer graze the fields in the dusk and dawn, rabbits, groundhogs, foxes, and more can be seen from time to time. Plenty of varieties of birds make the farm their home as well.
For $20 for the whole family we’ll give you an hour tour to meet the animals! Snuggle a chicken, pet a cow, gobble at a turkey. We’ll tell you about our farming practices and why it matters to your health and the health of the earth. Kids love meeting animals and adults will learn a thing or two!
However, you can also swim in our pool! We have a 30,000 gallon salt water pool, 12 foot deep end, diving board, toys, lounge chairs, relaxation rafts, basketball net, lounge chairs, table and umbrella, all available for your enjoyment. $10/hr per person, or $30/hr family rate, or $100 for unlimited access through your whole stay up to one week. A waiver must be signed before entering the pool area.

The parking spot is large, but the entrance to the farm is somewhat narrow any rig over 35 feet should not attempt to come in.
In addition, all Campers MUST be self-contained! No pop-ups, tents, or other types that do not have internal toilets, internal tanks, and internal cooking facilities.
Campers must stay out of all buildings for safety and liability. This is a working farm with dangerous equipment!
Similarly, Redemption Springs is not a campground so take care not to disturb us, the animals, or our neighbors. Be sure to stop any noise, music, and generators by 9 PM.
Electric is included in the cost, so please refrain from running your generator. Enjoy the beautiful sounds of nature! We understand that some appliances such as coffee makers need extra juice, and you’ll need to run your generator for a few minutes here and there, and that’s fine.
