Miscellaneous Information

About Our Farm

ELEVATION: 2936 feet

WEATHER: Click here to check the weather. 

CLOTHING/GEAR: You are coming to a rural farm. Casual dress. Bring jeans, light weight jacket, and don’t forget your swimsuit or shorts for the cool dip in our swimming holes. Bug spray, sunscreen and a flashlight to name a few items. Planning to fish? Bring your gear. Tennis shoes for the pickle ball or tennis courts at the local high school. For hiking wilderness trails a good sturdy pair of hiking boots is recommended and a backpack to carry water, snacks, a lunch and a first aid kit.

PET POLICY: Dogs are not allowed due to the cows and bulls in the pasture. There are friendly barn cats, but there are a few feral cats that are very independent. There is General Rommel “Rom” for short and he is the farm dog who keeps the cows behind the fence and the cats in line. This is a one horse barn with Quiver who is 20 years old.  

FISHING: If you plan to fish you will need a California fishing license for the wilderness lakes, Trinity Lake (over Scott Mt. about an hour drive) large and small mouth bass, Chinook Salmon, catfish, and native Rainbow trout. Most wilderness lakes have been stocked with Brook Trout.

This is a farm in progress. I came back here to recapture the peace and tranquility when Coffee Creek Ranch was lost to a wildfire in 2021. I cooked and entertained guests at the ranch from 1976. I am still restoring my farmhouse for the "Cottage Kitchen" where I will be able to bottle my Coffee Creek Ranch Seasoning for sale and teach cooking to my new guests and former guests who are my friends. The cooking school will be lessons you wish to master, like pie crusts, bread baking or making my famous cheesecake! These will be private one on one lessons. I look forward to “taking in guests, who leave as friends…”.
