host Profile

Hosted By glgasstrom

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.

    This was my second time staying at Gasstrom Farm - lovely location with easy access, level sites, power, water, a dump station, and a welcoming host. Thanks!

    It was hard to leave! Glen was warm and welcoming and the accomodations were fabulous. Glen and sons have gone way above and beyond when it comes to making a great HH/BW location (sign indicating where it is, level spots, easy access, hookups, lots of space to walk the dog) and the quiet is incredible. Could see the stars and Milky Way from horizon to horizon. Absolutely spectacular. Thank you! We will absolutely be back.

    Very helpful host, Glen got us settled on our gravel site with power and water for $20 and we had a tasting and bought some jam. Bonus to be able to pump out in the morning.

    The site is clean and expansive. The owner is awesome, we tasted his latest batch of wine , the electric and water connections were perfect. The site is so nice and quiet. We plan to come back next year around the same time. Our 30 ft fifth wheel had no problem parking on site.
