The SpaceThis is an open space cottage about 300 square feet with a full kitchenette, a 4 person dining table, a full size bed and a small shower. Your cottage will have utensils, plates, pot and pans, dish soap, sponge, toilet paper, towels and bedding for 2. Guest AccessYou may park in front of the cabin (there are stumps to indicate how close and where in order to protect the trees and septic), please stay behind these tree stumps and do NOT drive around the cottage on any side other than where the stumps are located in order to protect pipes, septic and gas lines. Or you may park in the Farm Yard close to the general store and walk to your cabin. Your cabin doe NOT have a porch on the front. If you would like us to have cheese, milk, summer sausage or other foods in your refrigerator waiting for you, view the online store on our website and send us an email in advance of arrival. The order system is for members only but you can see what is in inventory. We will have them in your cottage waiting, (URL HIDDEN) please use the Dairy Store tab. Interaction with GuestsUnless you have purchased another interactive activity package from the farm, you may or may not see anyone on the farm at all. The farm work hours in the summer are 6:30 a.m. - noon. and then from 6:00 -9:00 p.m. In the winter we work about 6:30-dark. The farm is a great place to come to be alone and/or spend time with the person that came with you. E-mail us from the farm website if you are seeking agritourism and let us know what you would like; if our schedule allows, we will quote you rates and accommodate your wishes for a tour, milking, aquaponic instruction, tutorial on a farming enterprise or full evaluation of your farm business plan. The NeighborhoodWe are in the middle of lots of ranch land. There are 3 ranches on our road with exotic species, you never know what you will see when you drive by the front fences. Getting AroundOur farm is 40 min from Bryan/College Station; 55 min from Waco; 45 min from Temple. The closer towns are 10 min away to historic Calvert, TX with nice shops to walk and browse, and several places to eat, Coco Modo is a fine dining establishment that can be a fun treat but call ahead for a reservation for a meal; Cameron, TX is 15 miles the other direction and has a couple of places to eat such as Ginno's Italian, Cameron, TX is the county seat with a beautiful courthouse with a few shops and coffee house/pie. Cameron has a square but it also has a tucked away OLD main street past the town and to the right - there is a pie/coffee shop and an old Cameron Seed store down there - pretty neat. There are 2 grocery stores in Cameron, a Subway/Texas Burger, a couple of mexican food places, fuel, and of course there is the small Farm Store for food at Sand Creek Farm. Other Things to NoteThe farm has 8 ponds where you are welcome to fish; remember to bring all of your own supplies. The far back of the farm is beautiful for a picnic. You will hear the guardian dog protecting the farm at night if she sees a need and the roosters do crow to wake up the farm. If you don't like these farm noises and/or the sound so quiet that you can hear the crickets chirp - bring ear plugs. Also note that the farm is a working farm, it is not a tourist attraction, and farms can have hazards in equipment, animals, and more. Exercise common sense in relation to animals - they can all bite, kick and paw; most don't, but be cautious.
