Produce, Pinot and, Quite Possibly, Pigs

We’ll take you on a chef’s tour of several Healdsburg family properties that are leading the way with organic, sustainable, and even biodynamic practices. You’ll have a chance to get your own hands dirty by picking or digging a basket of fresh produce to take home, and maybe even acquiring a few tips for your own vegetable garden.

Before it became world-renowned for its vineyards, California’s wine country was home to sprawling ranches and farms.

Today this agricultural legacy is evident in a new generation of sustainable farmers, many of whom deliver the provisions that make this region the farm-to-table capital of the world. We’ll take you on a chef’s tour of several Healdsburg family properties that are leading the way with organic, sustainable, and even bio-dynamic practices. You’ll have a chance to get your own hands dirty by picking or digging a basket of fresh produce to take home, and maybe even acquiring a few tips for your own vegetable garden. Then we’ll stop for lunch at a favorite locals' restaurant to experience how delicious home-grown can be. 

EXCURSION FEES

$105 per hour per (up to six guests) vehicle with accompanying guide. We recommend 6 hours for this experience, with a 4-hour minimum required.


THE PARTICULARS

Each experience is equipped with a “Boho Rig” – a vintage Land Rover Defender all-terrain SUV. Not only do we appreciate the coolness factor of these sturdy vehicles, but we love that Land Rover is a company with a social conscience.  

We’ll arrange to pick you up and drop you off from wherever you’re staying locally. Pick-ups and drops-offs from outside of our targeted area can be arranged in advance for an additional fee.

A private guide – local and wine-educated – will accompany your day visiting several farms and wineries in the Healdsburg area, with a stop for lunch. .  

Nice to meet you: Your Produce, Pinot and, Quite Possibly, Pigs experience will begin with a complimentary fruit basket to put you in the mood for some sustainable agriculture.

A little something to tide you over: In the unlikely event that your energy begins to flag between tastings, we’ve got you covered with car snacks such as artisanal chocolate, granola bars, and beverages.
