Rainbow's End Farm is in a lush redwood forest setting, one mile from the charming town of Occidental in the heart of West Sonoma County. From your campsite you have private hiking access to a majestic redwood grove (part of 20-acre redwood forest preserve). Relax in nature while only being minutes from gourmet restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping, as well as 20 minutes to Bodega Bay and Hwy 1.

RAINBOW'S END FARM

The permaculture farm has several historic barns and is home to many happy animals: goats, chickens, and ducks, and is full of lush berries, apples, plums and more. To book a tour of the farm, a guided medicinal plant walk, or inquire about classes (such as how to make jam and essential oils) please contact us in advance.

HISTORY

1917 - 1930: The yellow farmhouse and three historic red barns were built from Redwood Trees on the land. The farm had a large vineyard that was plowed under by the local Sheriff during prohibition.

1940 - 1950: The farm featured the largest cherry orchard in Sonoma County. Cherry blight in the 1960's killed most of the trees (too much morning fog).

1950 - 1960: The land served as a cattle ranch and Apple orchard.

1970: A group purchased the land to build "Esalen North" and host interpersonal growth workshops. A legendary Herbal Gathering, of some of the countries leading medicinal plant experts (founders of Traditional Medicinals and Celestial Seasonings), was held at this time.

1975: Don and Nan purchased the land and established a home-birthing clinic in the red barn at bottom of parking lot (make sure to look for the historic stained glass of baby in utero). In the ensuing decade, over 1,200 home births are attended to in Sonoma County and thousands of moms and babies are seen at the farm clinic.

2000: Nan retires from midwifery and devotes all of her energy to permaculture farming selling her farm products (jams, herbs, fresh fruit etc.) at local farmers markets.

Lovely campsite for our group of 5. Very thankful that this site is located underneath the trees which made for a private stay and shelter from the heat. A short trail is available by the campsite for those interested in a walk.

Great big site. Lots of room. Close but not right next to other sites. Site 3 is also a ceremonial spot, so we really felt good everyday there. We did have an incident on the hiking trail. We got stunk by Yellowjacket’s. We had to hike up the mountain to avoid an angry nest. Other than that and the crazy rain, we loved it. Great basic amenities and truly a lovely place that I will come again.

We loved staying at this campsite to celebrate my 30th birthday! We were a group of 9 people, had 6 tents,and rented out sites 2 and 3. We had our main camp at site 3, which is big and spacious and well set up for a group! But it did not have space for all our tents, so a couple tents slept over in site 2. I will say that sites 1-4 are all pretty close to each other, so when we were up late one night talking and laughing, that did disturb our neighbors. So if you have a bigger/louder group, it would be good to rent out sites 1-4 to prevent neighbors being disturbed. Sites 5 and 6 are on the other side of the parking lot, so they should be less bothered by the noise. We also really enjoyed the farm tour with Nan! Such interesting history and insight on how to live in community. Would definitely come back! Thanks Rainbow's End Farm!

Plenty of space for parking and the site was very accessible and clearly marked. It has some hidden gems scattered around the site that give it some character. The site has a good amount of flat ground for tents plus a fire pit and picnic bench. Gorgeous area!
