Age:

65+

Retired dairy farmers who love RVing. Details: We are retired dairy farmers who now spend their winters volunteering in Florida State Parks. Our youngest son lives on the farm with us and together we raise beef cows and sell the meat directly at the farm. We also sell hay. We had a farm brewery but could not keep it going because of Covid and we do not plan on reopening it. We use the building for the sale of our beef and the parking lot for Harvest Hosts and, now, Boondockers. Home Town: Ilion, NY is our postal address but we actually live in the small Town of Litchfield, NY. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Not yet, but hope to find some soon. Skills or Expertise to Share: We have dairy and farming/agriculture experience. Our youngest son races motocross and that is how we got into RVing years ago.

    Our host was wonderful. We were delayed arriving and made a wrong turn, he was very helpful on the phone getting us back on track. He waited in the rain to help us get into our spot and hooked up. Sorry we were not there when the store was open, sounds very tasty! Good location to visit Cooperstown.

    Had a great time. There were 4 rigs here, spent a wonderful evening around the campfire with 2 couples from Canada. Got some Short ribs for the wife & some ground beef. Hopefully next time they will have some steaks! Look at a map, My gps got me lost then there was no cell service. Was glad when I finally landed. Beautiful spot. Thanks for the great experience!
