Hi, I’m Lauren! I’ve been in Aptos my whole life, except a few years in midtown Santa Cruz. I absolutely love living on the edge of the forest that I grew up hiking in. For me, the magic of the redwood trees, ferns and moss never fades.

My husband Mack and I raise our super sweet animals, mostly goats, as well as pigs, our amazing guardian dogs (sweet as pie with humans), and our little shiba inu/terrier mix that thinks he is the king of the castle. And of course chickens, because I love making scrumptious omelets. I had the pleasure of going through the culinary arts program at our local community college, so I am passionate about cooking. I absolutely adore teaching and sharing the things I’ve learned over the years from my incredible instructors and mentors. My latest passion has been cultivating a very strong and delicious sourdough starter. And of course making cheese, from our goats’ milk, though I put the cheesemaking on hold when we have lots of babies eating the milk.

We very much look forward to having you come visit us and experience the fun and peaceful lifestyle of forest/beach/farm life. If you would like the full experience, please be sure to book Kinderwood Farms. Thank you!

During your stay

All farm activities and interaction must be coordinated through messaging prior to arrival. Please relay any food preferences/restrictions, and your ETA prior to you arrival. We will greet you at the agreed upon time, and be available for one hour to get you settled and take you on a tour of the farm. If your arrival time changes please inform us of the change and we will do our best to accommodate. We are a working homestead run by two people and the days can be quite packed so we rely upon your communication of itinerary and requests to provide you with the best experience.
