Crud, I barely spent that with those nice folks in Key West! That had full hookups, a view, and my own tiki hut!

That's what I've wondered. The problem is, I'm doing this for the interest/experience. I can more easily stay at a campground and get full hookups. So, IMO, it should be less than what a campground would cost- especially in that it's largely dry camping.

So I think it will be without hookups for the most part. So the business not out too much.
You're exactly right. They have you park off to the side/out of the way and it is typically dry camping. But at the same time, their generosity is worth a lot. It's a unique thing to offer and place to stay. I'm excited about the prospects. Just trying to find that fine line of worthwhile to me and them.

Yeppers. Don't want to ruin it in the future. Fortunately, they don't have the Uber-like customer scoring that others can see.

No idea, but I found a boat/swamp tour in Mississippi! That's going to be one heck of an overnight.

They say that they strive for about 50/50 split between farms and wineries:

What is the percentage of farms to wineries?
We strive to be as close to 50/50 as possible.

We have stayed at Harvest Hosts sites in many locations. Not just wineries. Farmer's markets, breweries, llama farms. Great opportunity especially on Friday, Saturday when weekend restrictions are in place at State campgrounds.
