Erica and Anna look forward to their visits all year long—and I do as well, my time spent with each of my girls provides such a treasure-trove of memories, from making dinner—swinging—snuggling under BIG covers—picking strawberries every moment is precious. My girls absolutely appreciate farm life, MaryJanesFarm life that is … Until next year …
P.S. April is a fabulous farmgirl addition!

Samantha, 4 years old: “I love April. I liked picking strawberries. I know what strawberries are made from—the field. I liked April’s breakfast. Let’s eat here all the time. I like jumping on the trampoline. I could live here for 1000 days!”
Thanks, Nick, for the eggs under the chicken!
Pierce, 7 years old: Pierce likes eating strawberries on the hammock. He even took a nap at the plum pit with no convincing needed. He loves not having electricity—lanterns and fires all the time. “I want to live here on the farm.” (I think he’s going to ask for a hammock for Christmas!)
Thanks for letting us live in the lap of luxury on the farm. So beautiful and cozy! See you later!

This is out first camping trip with our 1-year-old daughter; she loves it! The staff have been very friendly, and we enjoyed returning to the area we first met (we met while going to college at U of I). Thanks for a wonderful stay!

What an unexpected treat. We knew it would be great, but had no idea how wonderful our two days would be. Exploring the farm, cooking, lazing about, cozy in our tent. We made memories of an unforgettable mother-daughter weekend! Next time, we’ll bring the family!

This was my dream vacation! I loved picking strawberries in the warm sun, seeing all the different colors of Yarrow, getting food from the garden and making dinner, having the yummiest breakfast in the plum pit, and relaxing, and spending time with my mom. April was so nice and Nick was great. We love it here—we’ll be back.

Thanks for the wonderful stay—it was refreshing in so many ways. Hearing our coyote friends at night topped off a great outdoor evening. Thanks again for this wonderful experience.

Thank you for a wonderful time! I’ve learned that it’s not that hard to adapt to no electricity—& cooking over a campfire is quite fun! Breakfasts here were quite delicious & very charming. It was all so quiet here—I especially loved that, I’m always trying to simplify my life & I truly enjoyed my past two days of “Simplified Life”—Thank you again.

Wow, a whole year has come and gone and I am the next mom/wife/farmgirl to write in the guest book. We had a wonderful time and a magical manifesto that all the dreams in the world are with you at all times. MaryJane, you’re a genius! I love you. I love dreaming with you.
P.S. I was so lucky to bring my sweet Eliza. She is my sunshine.

Dear MaryJane, Meg, & Lucas—
All of the wonderful stories, memories, pictures, and magazines can’t do this amazing farm justice. We couldn’t have even imagined how peaceful, calm, and beautiful your farm truly is. Raising a child in this place must have been amazing. Thank you for sharing your outdoors with our family.

Beautiful, serene, calming place to spend a couple of days to unwind. April is magic in the kitchen! Thanks for the hospitality!
