About this experience
Your host will greet you upon arrival for a brief orientation of the grounds. After your orientation you will be invited to forage on your own and cut fresh flowers to take home. As you roam our fields and gardens you are sure to meet our lovely farm animals and other wild guests. We have chickens, cotton patch geese, dogs, cats and goats.
During your visit you are also welcome to bring your own picnic and blanket. Please do not feed the animals and follow the ‘pack it in, pack it out’ rule of thumb. No outside dogs or other pets are allowed.
Guests will leave with a bucket full of flowers and full hearts.
We will provide you with a bucket you can take home. Cutting shears and garden gloves are available if you would like to use ours but you are also welcome to bring your own from home if you prefer.
Wear appropriate attire: clothes toe shoes, a hat, sunscreen, layers in case it’s hot or chilly. If you are bringing garden gloves, leather is best.
Garden Valley Ranch is a 5 acre rose farm in the heart of Sonoma County. The ranch has been growing premium garden roses for over 30 years and is a historic property dating back to the late 1800’s. Guests often describe their time here as ‘magical’. Beyond the beauty and serenity of our gardens, you will find harmony amongst the wild life, a bounty of fresh grown fruits and vegetables and be deafened by nature’s call.
