We are a 4-generation family-owned and operated working farm, and have lived here since 1976. We are proud growers for Diamond Walnuts, and also have a busy Farm Stand with walnuts and produce, over 500 Christmas Trees, and a small event venue for rent. We love our farm and are happy to open our walnut grove to you and share the bounty and beauty that we have called home for over four decades. Ballard is 2 miles from Solvang, Los Olivos, and Santa Ynez. Our Walnut Grove is nestled in the village of Ballard and in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley. Walking distance to two Tasting Rooms (Rideau & Lincourt), a Bakery (Bob's Well Bread), and a Fine-Dining Restaurant (Ballard Inn). Note that the trees lose their leaves in the winter and will leaf-out in late May. We offer 2 sites the Grove: one that accommodates larger RV's with up to 6 people (called "Diamond" - which has a larger area with soft solar lighting, picnic table, fire pit, corn hole, cozy bench for two, complimentary bundle of wood and a tasty treat. (This site also accommodates two RV's -just "add on" in Extras for each night of their stay.) The other smaller space (called "Chandler") is designed for a single RV or conversion van. Sprinkled with lighting, we include a picnic table, campfire pit with 3-4 pieces of split wood (you can add-on additional bundle for $10), Weber BBQ, bistro table and romantic bench swing. We include a treat for both our guests and their doggies. The two sites are 200 yards apart (that's two football fields) assuring your privacy. Please note in your request what you will be traveling in (RV, Trailer, Sprinter, etc). (** Please note that because we are a food-producing farm, we are only allowed to accept fully self-contained units (with built-in water and waste water tanks - sorry, no portable toilets ). No tents unless they are accompanying a self contained RV).

Perfect Wine Country Camping
We loved staying with Mike and Anne on their Walnut Grove. This was the perfect spot to wind down after a wonderful afternoon of wine tasting in Los Olivos. You can always tell when a host truly cares about their campers and goes the extra mile to make the stay special. That was certainly the case with Mike and Ann. Thank you for a great stay! Also, great stargazing!

"Diamond" for RV's and Trailers
Good Times
This spot is amazing! Quiet and peaceful and exactly what we wanted after spending 5 days at a resort where the trailers are lined up in a row. Our dog had enough space to play and the trees provided enough shade and the breeze was refreshing. It’s the kind of place where you can hear yourself thinking and actually begin to dream again. Especially since we did not get any reception on our phones!🤣 The welcome gift of walnuts from the farm showed how much Mike & Anne care about their guest. Plus for $10.00 you can also get fresh baked sourdough bread….. it was delicious! The picnic table , fire pit & corn hole are beautiful touches! We will be back for a longer trip! Thank you for hosting us! We highly recommend staying here!
