Experience the serene tranquility of country life at our family-owned working farm that has been cultivated with passion and pride across four generations. This idyllic destination is not only a testament to agricultural heritage but also a perfect slice of countryside to park your RV and relax amidst nature. Roll your home-on-wheels onto spacious fields that have nurtured crops for years, and wake to the soothing rustle of hay in the morning breeze. Discover the simplistic beauty of farmland stretching out like a lush green carpet, highlighted by rows of specialty sod that add uniqueness to our landscape.

Items to Purchase
No farm store, just peace & quiet, rolling hills and beautiful sunsets. However, HH-suggested donation for first night is appreciated and feel free to inquire with us about staying additional nights at a rate of $20/night. It can be left in the white donation box onsite or digitally via Venmo to @Jenny_Lloyd, or Zelle using 386-867-5566 per the suggestion of many of our wonderful guests, as well as the Harvest Host organization. The donations are used to keep the HH parking location managed (routinely mowed and limbs picked up, etc). Generators allowed. Our farm product (hay) is sold from our barns to feed stores, horse barns, cattle ranches, and dairies to feed horses, beef cattle, dairy cattle, and goats around central & south Florida, as well as exported to the islands. (Think of us the next time you eat a juicy steak, delicious hamburger, or a big bowl of ice cream!)
Parking & Arrival
Address: 8131 200th St, McAlpin, FL 32062. Make sure you use this address. Our farm consists of two locations: the Harvest Host location is this one. Emphasize: use the above address (otherwise you'll have to turn around and backtrack three miles to the correct location). Turn into the property at “Haystack 2” driveway and park under or near any of the trees along the driveway on the right hand side. The spots are under large laurel oak trees with tall limbs. (Plenty of shade and wide open spaces - see profile pictures). No need to unhook, unless you prefer to. Sometimes during April/May and September/October our roads may get dusty from no rain. Also during that time the irrigation units run. If you see picnic tables, they are not anchored so feel free to move them around to whatever direction suits you. Text us when you're settled at 386-867-5566. No store, just peace & quiet, rolling hills and beautiful sunsets. HH suggested donation for the first night and feel free to inquire with us about staying additional nights at a rate of $20/night. It can be left in the white donation box onsite, or digitally via Venmo to @Jenny_Lloyd, or Zelle using 386-867-5566. Generators are allowed if needed. Our Harvest Host location is about seven acres so there is about one acre per HH spot. Plenty of space between spots to avoid hearing a neighboring generator if that is a concern.
