40 acre sheep dairy farm. Our farm is a naturalist's paradise with 30 acres of pastures, native plant hedgerows, and oak woodlands that attract songbirds, hawks, owls, and the occasional Bald Eagle. We are located about 10 minutes from Elkhorn Slough where you can kayak or take nature hikes to see otters, seals and tons of birds; and Moss Landing where you can go whale watching and fishing in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. We also offer tours of the dairy and creamery and cheesetasting by appointment. 

We have a large space at the top of the pasture that is great for a group or can be a couple of separate campsites. It has a great view and lots of privacy. The downside is that it is a bit of a hike through the pasture to get there, but we can drive up your gear in the farm truck if you have a lot. The second site is closer to the parking area but still a little hike. It is a platform up under the oak trees that's nicely secluded.  Both sites are provided with a basic bucket-style compost toilet. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO PARKING AT THE CAMPSITES. THEY ARE ALL WALK-IN.

There are some picnic tables in my backyard which you are welcome to use in daylight hours. We have a cob oven in the yard that I can fire up and provide you with dough for pizza-making for an extra $30 (check for availability). 

Please keep in mind that this is a working livestock farm and there will be chickens, sheep, pigs, and dogs; and gates that need to be kept closed. Please let me know when you arrive if you are interested in purchasing cheese, yogurt, eggs or meat!

Good spot to sleep a night or two in the Monterey area, or if wanting to visit a sheep dairy. We didn't read the description close enough and did not realize the hill/walking to the camp site. It's not a long walk, but not practical for bringing a full camp set-up (we had kitchen and camp chairs, but just set up the tent and went out to eat). Big drawback was the busy highway that runs by the house. We were there on a Saturday night and it was noisy late into the night and early morning - not a 'camping in nature' experience. The kids loved the animals and we loved the cheese, but be aware of what comes along with farm life - poo on shoes and aromas. Host and farm manager were friendly. We liked the experience, but seemed overpriced for what it was.

This was a great place to stay if you are visiting the Salinas area. They also sell lamb meat and cheese.

It was a nice flat camping spot in the oaks above the sheep farm. They also sale very good cheese and lamb.

It was a great experience for the whole family. Very nice place to camp and alot of fun to see the farm animals, feed and pet them . There isn't an option to park next to the camp area so it was a bit difficult to carry our equipment. That was the only thing I would recommend to change. Other than that it was a very good experience.

Had a wonderful stay at the sheep farm. The campsite was up the hill from the working farm, and was a quiet and private place to set up camp. The actual campground was on a level surface underneath some trees.
The walk from your car to the campsite takes a couple of minutes and requires passing through 2 gates, but once you get there you have the place to yourself. Definitely worth the walk!
The host (Rebecca) was very responsive and gracious. I will definitely come here again when I’m in the area!

We stayed at the top of the hill--it was great! We had the hill to ourselves, the views were unbeatable. The next morning we had the farm tour, and learned a lot about how this real and (mostly) organic farm operates, and also tasted some of their cheeses (yummy!). We're planning to return.

What a beautiful stay at Rebecca's farm -- an animal lover's paradise. It is a hike up to the camp site, but totally worth the privacy and the views. There is a tree house and swings that my kids could not get enough of. We got to see the sheep milking, feed lambs, sample cheese and yogurt, and had fresh eggs for breakfast. Rebecca was a gracious host, and we would totally recommend staying at her farm.
