Come stay on a family-friendly working farm! We are a certified cow dairy and creamery and also raise laying chickens, emus and other animals. A large, well-equipped guest house sleeps 8+ . Watch our adorable cows be milked and take care of their calves, taste fresh cheese, ice cream and yogurt, observe the animals grazing during the day, hike, explore the pond and creek, or just relax on the deck. Located in Sierra-Nevada foothills, 30 min from Auburn, 1 hr from Sacramento.

The space
Located in the beautiful foothills in between Auburn and Lincoln, our 90 acre farm is home to a herd of Scottish Highland, Dutch Belted and other heritage breed dairy cattle, emus, pigs, goats, (many) chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, donkeys and horses-- as well as the more conventional dogs and cats and abundant wildlife.

We are a working dairy farm and creamery producing yogurt, butter, ice cream and cheese. There is also a large population of free range laying chickens for eggs. We are committed to high standards of animal happiness and general welfare and are on the leading edge of ethical dairy and egg production.

The grounds include various gardens, trails to hike, a creek for swimming and a pond with a row boat. A hedge surrounds a secret garden with a sandbox and seasonal grapes and roses and picnic area. Our antique firetruck is a popular play site and we have a structure with slide, rock wall, and swings.

Our place is perfect for kids or anyone who loves the outdoors and animals and would enjoy a taste of farm life or just relax in the quiet.

The air-conditioned house has four bedrooms, a sitting area and full living room- dining room combination as well as a deck with view of meadows and ponds. Two rooms have queen beds, one room has a double bed, and the 4th room has two single beds. The sitting area has a queen-sized hide-a-bed.

The fully equipped kitchen is complete with pots, pans, tableware, small (Melitta style) drip coffee maker with grinder. Oils, coffee beans, and standard condiments are stocked. We provide eggs and some dairy products. An assortment of dairy products are usually available for purchase too. Note that we do NOT provide or sell liquid milk.

A washer-dryer in the house is also available for your use.

Where you’ll be

Lincoln, California, United States

The property feels extremely remote and secluded but in reality is a short drive from several towns. Our place is located about 55 min from Sacramento and the airport, 25-35 minutes from Auburn and Roseville and 20 minutes from Lincoln. Lincoln and Roseville have plenty of shopping and dining options. The Placer County Wine Trail is about 10 minutes away. The nearest Whole Foods is in Roseville and Auburn and Lincoln have a selection of specialty and chain groceries. Newcastle Produce (in Newcastle!) is highly recommended as are the Foothills Farmers' markets in Old Town Auburn on Saturdays and at the Roseville Fountains mall on Tuesdays.

Placer County offers a variety of recreation including hiking, swimming, rafting and historical sites. Grass Valley and Nevada City are about 45-50min drive.

With my husband and four children we operate a small dairy and chicken farm in Placer County California. All of us love to give tours and introduce people to our many friendly animals. My other interests include gardening, nutrition and astronomy.

As much or little as desired. We are happy to give tours and involve guests in farm activities like grooming and feeding animals. Just ask. Of course if you are looking for solitude we can provide that too (assuming a moo or crowing rooster doesn't bother you).
