Our family farm is located in the heart of beautiful Sonoma Valley. A total of 7 acres with 4 in Chardonnay grapes and 3 as our homestead and sheep farm. Come feed animals, gather eggs and use our place as a launching point for your wine country vacation. While riding her horse through the vineyards, a friend of ours noticed a "For Sale" sign. Nice barn, lighted arena, hmmm...maybe my friends would like to move here. One phone call and a risky escrow led to our dream property. We've slowly made it our own and have found that growing roses, grapes, fruit trees, chickens and sheep are our specialty. We've been "camping" here since 2002 and can't believe our luck. With uninhibited views of the beautiful hillsides and a rural lifestyle, our farm makes us feel like Nature paints us a new painting every day. The Chardonnay grapes are turned into wonderful Carneros wines by some of the areas best winemakers.

Flower Farm
This is a hard one, but it seems like the farm has been offline for years and is just back online (only a few recent reviews, which I only caught after the stay). The tree house ladder was gone, the cute buildings had broken windows and the bathroom had the door left open and was quite dirty. Had this been a harvest host, I would have been fine with it, but given it was nearly $200 for the night, the condition wasn’t acceptable and photos misleading. The reviews mention a wonderful host, but she was out of town, so I didn’t experience that part. I was also awoken in the middle of the night to incredibly loud dog barking right outside the RV for at least 20 minutes. On the plus side the location is very convenient and the baby goats were adorable. This is perhaps the first negative hip camp or harvest host review I’ve left - but there is work that needs to be done to get Flower Farm back to its glory and I wouldn’t recommend until then.

The Best
Where to even start… this was the last stop of a two week adventure myself, my husband and two children were on. It was the picture perfect ending to the trip. Cindy is lovely! She is so warm and open. We felt right at home. Her husband is also very friendly. We had so much fun on the property, we really didn’t need to leave. Between, spending time with the sheep, feeding and bonding with chickens, swinging and playing soccer we had a blast. Cindy also took the time to make a flower bouquet with my 5 year old daughter 🩷. The two dogs were so delightful and we fell in love with both of them. If you have the privilege of staying here, you will not regret it!

Awesome
Cindy and David are awesome! When we arrived Cindy, David and Sally (friendly dog) met us at the gate and gave us a full tour. Cindy introduced our five year old daughter to all her animals and she loved feeding the chickens and petting the cats. Cindy’s kindness, generosity and hospitality are more than enough of a reason to stay but the beautiful views and the farm feel just takes it over the top.

The farm fix we needed
I knew this would be a fun getaway, but I guess I didn't realize just how much fun we would have. The hosts are incredible. They will give you the full tour, share so many facts, let you play with the animals, and then have free reign to explore on your own. Being from the city, it's truly so special to be able to get away from the traffic, hang out with Bonnie and Hercules, the sweetest two dogs, feed the chicken and sheep, and walk through the vineyard. Did I mention we played basketball and engaged in a chipping contest? We fully expected to head into town for the night, but instead found ourselves having such a good time on the farm that we stayed, grilled some food that we had brought, and sat by the gas fire, enjoying the calm of the country. In the morning, I got to watch Cindy harvest some roses from her flower garden, and we took our time before heading into Sonoma to check out the town. I cannot recommend this place enough. We'll be talking about it for awhile!

We had a great time waking up on the vineyard. Awesome location right in the middle of wine country (Carneros). Definitely a unique experience. Fortunately it was damp so we could have a bonfire which was really nice on the chilly night in December.

We camped for two nights on our honeymoon. The hosts are so friendly and helpful with suggestions to restaurants and wineries! We were able to set up camp anywhere we pleased, including the vinyard---which is so cool! The treehouse is a pretty sweet spot as well! It was very nice to have access to a real toilet and sink with running water after camping other places for a week. If you camp here, you must like animals! Their sheep and chickens are very talkative :) and their dog is the sweetest! Location is a short drive to downtown Sonoma.
