Being in the foothills of the Cuyamaca mountains has its advantages. Each season brings different experiences. The spring is magnificent. The orchard is flowering, the garden is flourishing, the peacocks are courting, and the birds are preparing their nests.  In the summer, there is always a breeze coming to us from the ocean. The mighty oak groves provide shade and inviting natural space for self-reflection. The fall is celebrated with our pumpkin patch and cooler temperatures. Winter gives you the excuse to bundle up in your favorite cozy jacket.

210+ Animals

The Farm is home to 29 different species and 70 different breeds, mostly herbivores ranging from guinea pigs to the 1,500lb. bison. Many of our animals have been acquired from owners who could no longer keep or care for them. These animals will now live out the rest of their lives in the serenity of the farm.
