Spending time on our farm will give you the gift of country silence that increasingly is out of reach in our noisy, fast paced over crowded world. You will hear roosters crow, donkeys bray and other typical farm sounds to delight the senses. Staying on the land provides a brief, but intimate, glimpse into the way things used to be and confirms that, somewhere in this technologically advanced world, there are simple charming and unhurried enclaves still viable. There are some of us who are still living quite well on what we cultivate from the land. In these microcosms of society you'll find counterbalance from the hectic distractions of the city to a slower quieter rhythm of country routine.
The premise of a farm stay is relatively simple: we open our farm to visitors and share with you the many facets of life off the beaten path. Seemingly a world away, yet close to San Francisco and situated in the center of the Wine country of Sonoma County.
We are a small working farm in Santa Rosa and easily accessible from all major airports in the bay area. Visitors are invited to participate in the daily chores, (this is not a requirement for your stay, simply a choice) and may rejoice in the opportunity to get in touch with nature--literally. Tasks can include the feeding of hens, and gathering of eggs, grooming the horses, barn chores such as mucking out a stall, or weeding flower and vegetable beds to name a few. If your first love is the earthly delight of soil, we have multiple gardens and orchards to tend. This is your vacation to do as you please, if Wine tasting and extraordinary meals is what you long for, Sonoma County has them in abundance.
Accommodations are simple, a lovely little cottage with a welcoming rose arbor inviting you to step into a more simple relaxed place. You can enjoy predictable comforts of a porch swing while sipping a glass of sweet tea. Sit with your morning coffee next to the well tended rose garden while hearing the buzzing bees busily gathering nectar for the hives on the farm. Relax in the delightful display of hummingbirds in our butterfly garden, all under a wide sky with long views to Taylor Mountain. A farm stay with us allows you freedom of light and space, gaining an appreciation of the value and beauty of ordinary things almost forgotten. While gliding smoothly under the willow tree your senses will delight in the animals that ramble close by. You may hear occasional quacking, honking, neighing, peeping and always the whispering of leaves beckoning you to be still.
