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 airy flush toilets. 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.

What a great little place! We had fun and stayed relatively comfortable despite the crazy heat wave that followed us in. The goats and sheep and dogs were a huge hit with our nine-year-old, and everyone was super friendly.

Oasis in nature
Lovely oasis in nature - with a huge open communal kitchen and amazingly secluded surroundings. Great to relax away from it all!

Our van broke down on our road trip, with Wondernut being our next stop, so we unfortunately didn’t get to stay there, however, Matt and Eve were such a pleasure to deal with during the whole process. They were wonderful with communication and were so gracious and understanding. We will definitely be back to visit another time when our van is up and running again. Thank you so much Matt and Eve!!

We had a great time on Matt and Eve's farm, wish we'd been able to stay for longer. They were extremely welcoming, the farm is beautiful, our kids loved seeing the animals and showering whilst looking out over the beautiful landscape. If you love getting close with nature, then look no further.

Fall asleep watching the stars
An inspiring stay, Matt & Eve’s farm is situated in a gorgeous landscape. We fell asleep watching the stars, we absolutely loved showering with an open view of the landscape. The big farm kitchen is very cool, I highly recommend this stay and staying in the lookout.
