Wondernut Farm

4 sites · Lodging37 acres · Big Oak Flat, Tuolumne
Wondernut Farm is an upstart, entirely off grid, working farm-stead being built from the ground up. We breed milking goats and sheep, heritage pigs, and are in the process of converting to a grade A dairy and creamery! We use organic practices, management intensive rotational grazing, and dryland pasture management. We sell our animals locally so that others can have their own milking and meat animals. Our 110 year old hay barn and the roof of the former lumber mill were all we had to work with in getting off the ground. Being first and foremost a functional farm, we can't help but offer a somewhat warts-and-all look into everything it takes to be working to our goals. Our hearts are, and always will be, educational and local community focused, and we work closely with farmers and friends alike in better understanding our innovative animal husbandry, power, pasture and water systems. Whenever we have time, we'll afford the same time and opportunities to interested hip-campers. Our location is stunning and historic, and the beauty of the wild, natural landscape is powerful, yet offers easy access to both Yosemite Valley and the San Francisco Bay area. The area features excellent road and mountain biking in the immediate vicinity, vast access to hiking and backpacking trails, a huge variety of rock climbing in the area, the best whitewater rafting in California on the Tuolumne River, with some tasty places to eat or drink coffee in the nearby town of Groveland, just 10 minutes away. Accommodations at the farm are certainly rustic, and private but not secluded, with occasionally heavily project-exploded shared kitchen and living space, showers, and a composting toilet. Do be advised that animals are pooping, hammers are hammering, sometimes we need to look into a health or animal injury related issue. Sometimes there is blood in an animal birth or slaughter, and our working guardian dogs have been known to be noisy some nights. Water and electricity are both very limited (though we reuse all our water), waste must be carefully sorted into a number of different categories, and there is always evidence of ump-teen projects unfolding at once. The most difficult condition during much of the summer are nuisance flies, which are always gone at night. We have almost no mosquitoes or ticks. Depending on the exact situation and time of year, guests may have the opportunities to snuggle with baby animals and run our herd to or from pasture, and maybe even get their hands dirty picking veggies in the garden.

Cabins in Big Sur guide

With its redwood forests and secluded atmosphere, Big Sur is made for a cabin getaway. Yes, this rugged expanse of the Central California coast is known for its dramatic ocean scenery (must-sees include the Bixby Creek Bridge and McWay Falls in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park), but when Highway 1 veers away from the Pacific and slightly inland to follow the Big Sur River, a stretch of cabin resorts, vacation rentals, and campgrounds are nestled in the woods, where you can relax and stay comfortable after a day of hiking in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park or tubing down the river. Most cabins are available year-round, many with plush amenities like full kitchens, queen-sized beds with linens, wood-burning stoves, wifi, and even hot tubs. While it might be colder and wetter in winter, it’s not as hard to snag a cabin reservation during this time. If you do have trouble, check out cabins in Carmel-by-the-Sea and Carmel Valley, north of Big Sur.
