About
Immerse yourself in the sustainable serenity of West Michigan's agricultural abundance, where your RV camping experience merges with the tranquility of a family-run, eco-conscious farm. As pioneers in nurturing the land since 1992, the Bronkema family invites you to park your home-on-wheels amidst sprawling fields that tell a tale of environmental stewardship and the cultivation of goodness. Revel in the simplicity and savor the robust flavors of life on a farm where grass-fed lamb and beef are not just a choice but a wholesome lifestyle. The farm's Belted Galloway cattle, endearingly known as 'Oreo cows' due to their distinctive coloring, are a testament to the purest organic farming principles. Certified organic and fed exclusively on lush grasses, these bovines embody the farm's commitment to health - for the soil, the animals, and ultimately, the discerning camper and consumer. Embrace the gentle touch of nature with the farm's Polypay sheep, where the wool is as soft as the lamb is mild-tasting. Here, RV camping transcends beyond a scenic stay; it's an educational journey understanding the intricate dance of crop rotation, the verdant legacy of heirloom dry beans, and the golden aura of homegrown grains. Prepare to be enthralled by the rustic charm of cornmeal and grits, stone-ground from organic corn, or explore an array of ancient grains such as einkorn, spelt, and barley - each a golden thread in the rich tapestry of sustainable cultivation. Your RV camping adventure at this West Michigan haven is not just a retreat - it's an indulgence in purity and a shared passion for conscientious living. Bring your appreciation for the farm-to-table movement and leave with a deeper connection to the earth and its bountiful, delicious harvest.
