About Orchard Nest
This is a site on a working farm in the foothills east of Sacramento, at approximately 1500 ft. We are producing organic flowers, fruits, herbs & vegetables. With some notice we will be happy to provide a retreat spot with cleansing juices, wheat grass juice, salads and other fresh picked produce. Otherwise you can see the activities of the farm as they happen in a quiet little valley with beautiful sky views and songbirds night and day. There are many assorted activities close by and with easy access. We are 5 mi. from town, yet very quiet and peaceful. Auburn area was a supply juncture in the gold rush days. The railroad was beginning west/ east from the Sacramento River into the High Sierras. The gold was being rushed from Nevada City & Coloma, north / south. Auburn was at the crossroads for all of that activity. There are rolling hills, Pines & Oaks, good soil, and great Nature in this area.
The sites here are quiet, rugged but comfortable, open most of the year, Welcoming. You can be alone in a private area tucked into a crescent at the side of the orchard with a little hill at your back, or you can interact with farming community as available. We have dogs, cats and chickens at the farthest end of the property 10 acres away. There is a perimeter road/path which can be walked to see the total of the farm.
Parking is approximately 300-500 feet from the site.

The vibe at Orchard Nest
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The farm was a little tricky to find (although probably mostly because we arrived after dark). The spot was great with the compostable toilet right by it and the little gravity powered shower too. Not to mention the fact that it's in a kiwi orchard which was snug feeling, beautiful and smelt great. There's a firepit and seating area on the site too and Ruthanne had kindly provided us with a bowl of the most delicious cherries. Ruthanne and everyone on the farm were really friendly (including the dogs) and we had a great stay.
