Farm and Forest Harvest
This trip is for folks who want to sample the real local flavors and vibe of the North Coast. Experience farm life at famous Pie Ranch, where harvest organic fruit from the gardens and make pie. We enjoy a gourmet picnic as the pie bakes, then head on a redwood hike and learn about wild edibles from our local foraging expert such as mushrooms, nettles and medicinal plants. With edible surprises along every trail, Farm and Wild Forage teaches your team about our incredible edible ecosystem.

At Pie Ranch we take a farm walk led by a local farmer and harvest seasonal ripe fruit for pie-making in the ranch's outdoor kitchen. INCREDIBLE LUNCH cooked by farmer/chef David with menu sourced from Pie Ranch, this lunch is only surpassed by the bucolic view of the farm's meadow. Pie for dessert! Non-alcoholic beverages included. Premium beer and wine available on request. AFTERNOON. Hike 3.5 miles (500' elevation gain) in beautiful Butano SP through giant redwood groves and chaparral.
