Our Story

How did it come to pass that Mitch and Michelle would become passionate farmers after long careers and experience in many different cities, and roles? We could say that there are no coincidences and that we somehow manifested our next journey, but it definitively came about from a series of fortunate events that led to where we are today!

Testimonials

“Wow! What a beautiful piece of property. Our family of 4 camped with our 24ft Travel Trailer. We had the place to ourselves except for the seasonal workers who were very friendly. Mitch and Michelle were very accommodating. They set up “movie night” in the bars on our last night. That barn is something special. Highly recommend staying here.”
Dominic L., Hipcamp Review from April 13, 2024

“What a little piece of heaven! Mitch was absolutely lovely and the grounds were incredible. Having all the hookups right next to us were quite helpful as well. We’ll definitely be back! And don’t forget to check out the second floor of the barn! Way way cool!”

Angella H., Hipcamp Review from October 5, 2023

“Beautiful property – very quiet and peaceful, yet everything we wanted to do in Olympia was a quick drive. Kids loved exploring the barn and playing on the swings!”

Lindsay, Hipcamp Review

“Summit Farms is a spectacular spot. Very beautiful, quiet, with fantastic amenities, particularly if you have an RV, having full hook ups makes all the difference. The kids had a great time exploring the farm and playing in the barn (…the swings were particularly popular). Mitch and Michelle are lovely hosts, they made us feel very welcome. We will be returning!”

Adrian, Hipcamp Review

“I loved staying at this hidden away, picturesque gem in my 27’ airstream. Plenty of room to navigate and explore.”

Carla, Hipcamp Review
