Have Your Event at the Farm!

Host Your Event on the Farm

Since starting our organic farm in 1976, we've welcomed school visits, business team-building retreats, farm tours, community events and wedding celebrations to our farm. Over the years, it's been an honor to share our family farm with visitors and their own families, friends and communities.

Host Your Event on the Farm

Nestled in the beautiful Capay Valley, the site of our family's original farm welcomes visitors with picturesque, rolling hills and vivid sunsets. Events are held along an oak-tree and lavender-lined, grassy plateau overlooking fields of fruits and vegetables and nearby citrus and stone fruit orchards.

If you've been thinking about hosting your event at our Capay farm in northern California, here's a little more information about the types of private events and activities we offer.  Hope to see you soon!

Our farm offers the perfect setting for school groups of all ages to truly experience a farm and the importance of growing organically and sustainablyUpon arrival students will meet one of our expert farmers and enjoy a tractor-tram ride around around the farm.

Along the way they will stop to get their hands dirty by participating in a harvest activity. They might even get the chance to weed a crop or help us release some good ladybugs into the fields to defend against the bad bugs we don’t want.

After some fresh air and a little work, they will leave the farm with a better understanding of sustainable farming and what it takes to bring the fruits and vegetables to the table.

The Capay farm is the perfect place for a work retreat. 

The mood is restful and contemplative. Groups can take long walks, harvest produce or meet at tables that overlook the breathtaking Capay Valley.

A wedding in the Capay Valley is a beautifully rustic, never-to-be-forgotten experience. Our events manager works directly with the wedding couple to plan a memorable ceremony and reception for the unique setting of the farm. The farm house is available for the party's use.  
With multiple options for event and ceremony locations, our farm works well for both small, intimate gatherings and large celebrations of up to 400 guests, May through October.
