We spent a night at a Private Cozy Organic Farm in Sellersville, Pennsylvania on a Hipcamp Field Scout assignment.
If you’re not familiar with Hipcamp, they are “committed to making getting outside fun and easy, as simple as selecting what, when and where you want your camping experience to be.” (from Hipcamp.com). They are a great resource for finding and booking campsites across the United States (unfortunately direct booking is not available for federal or state land). Lots of private land is listed and, as a Field Scout, we visit the property to tell its story via photography and provide feedback.
TIP: Try Hipcamp to discover campgrounds (or list your own land!). Use this link to sign-up and receive $10 in Hipcamp credit towards your first booking!

Live in the greater Philadelphia area but love the country and farm life? Interested in camping at Nockamixon State Park but prefer more privacy? This Bucks County private organic farm is a special getaway less than an hour away from Philadelphia and about 20 minutes from Nockamixon State Park.
Park your self-contained RV or camper in the fields across the street from the working farm and enjoy the peace and quiet. When you’re ready for dinner, head over to the farm store to purchase meat from Bucks County’s only certified organic farm – Hershberger Heritage Farm – offering pasture raised meat and eggs. Your dinner can be paired with beer from Free Will Brewing Co. in the neighboring town of Perkasie.
When you’re not chowing down, pursue outdoor activities – hiking, biking, boating, and more – at nearby Green Lane Reservoir Park or Nockamixon State Park. Or, stay put on the farm and enjoy the environment that your hosts, Shelah and Nathan, have nurtured over the past four years. You’ll see the pasture raised cows, pigs, sheep, and chickens and have a newfound appreciation for farming at its finest.
In typical Trip Over Life fashion, in addition to enjoying flights at Free Will Brewing Co. in Perkasie, we stopped at Vault Brewing Company in Yardley, Pennsylvania for a beer on our way home. Cheers!
