Interaction with Guests
We usually greet each guest personally but sometimes we are under a deadline and have to keep working. We would love to give you a tour of the farm if you'd like. We will interact with you as much as you like. Some guests want to be more private and we respect that. The motor home is away from the main houses and it is very private but there are other abodes on the property.
Our farm is in a country setting but city life is only 6 miles away. The farm is very quiet and dark at night. We have a locked gate that you will be given a code to get in to. There is a little country store that has the "world's best beef jerky" just up the road too. Foster Park and Lake Casitas are very close for picnics or cookouts. We no longer can allow fires on the property.
We are just 1/2 mile from the highway. There is also a bus line by the highway.
There is a nice bike/walking path that goes North to Ojai or South along the Ventura River to the beach and on to the Ventura marina.
Other Things to Note
We do have two dogs on the property. Parents please watch your children around the dogs. They are friendly but don't like to have any faces in their faces. There are other animals on the property too. Please do not feed them unless we are with you.
We don't use any chemicals on the farm. The motor home is cleaned with non-toxic essential oils.
Happy people around. Come breathe easy and relax!
No smoking ANYWHERE on the premises, no campfires and no pets. Please drive slowly on the driveway as there are two not so street smart dogs present. Since this is a working farm we all have to rise early. We ask that you be quiet after 10:00 PM. If you are arriving in the evening please be mindful how much noise you make (closing car doors, small children, voices, car alarms). You will be given the gate code and may come and go as you please but if you do come in late please be quiet. This motor home will be our retirement home, please treat it with respect.
Please no feminine products down the toilet.
