...turned out to be the gourmet experience of a life time.

We decided to spend my 60th BDay in Healdsburg with some good friends and discovered the The New Tree Ranch. The property looked beautiful on the website but the overall experience exceeded all of our expectations … – The check in experience was like that of 5 star hotel – The house was the perfect place to hang out with friends for the weekend and the tent with a hot tub provide the perfect spot for star gazing … – There is a marvelous garden on the ranch from which all our meals came from and with fresh eggs from the chicken coup every morning. – We had a pizza dinner in the garden on our 1st night and the experience is hard to describe … A very special unique experience … not your typical wood fired pizza experience … If there had been forest fairies flying around you would think you were in a movie 🙂 – We went with a vegetarian diet for the visit which turned out to be the gourmet experience of a life time. Ed / David brought in a local chef that truly made the experience special. I have had gourmet chef meals before but the flavor experience was in the top five of my life. We had a squash bloom with stuff cheese lightly battered that was truly unique and memorable – The BDay dinner was a 6 course meal prepared by a chef that was truly talented. And they made sure that there were enough servers that everyone’s food was served at the same time … a very nice touch. – We did wine tasting with a group of 17 friends and Ed took care of transportation – Throughout the visit we needed to make adjustments for additional friends joining and windy conditions and Ed and the staff took care of everything and made the who experience stress free – For anyone looking for a special experience for a special occassion they want to share with some good friends I would highly recommend The New Tree Ranch.

This is a fabulous property.

We were a family of 6 plus a 11 month old cerebrating a 30th bday. This was such a great choice. So much to do and see leading in first with an immaculate property, much attention to details, the finest of everything and wonderful host. We loved the fridge filled with fresh produce from the ranch along with fresh daily eggs. The lighting, bedding, Sonos, several fireplaces and firepits, fresh flowers throughout the house, decor, anything you might want… It was all available! Besides the solar heated pool, there’s a lake you can swim, canoe and paddle board in. Also, there’s a Yurt (glamping) with a fireplace on property with a hot tub to experience something that is really special. Meeting the goats and cattle along with the chickens and adorable Dick the dog was a treat. We were so impressed with the plant based dinner they provided. The gardens you dine in are beautiful, the food delicious and experience memorable! You are only 15 minutes from Healdsburg if you want to eat out or explore. There are several wineries nearby as well. This is a fabulous property. Healdsburg in general has cell phone connection issues… Make sure you have the gate code and accurate directions from homeowner before you head out to property as you may not have cell coverage approaching that area until you are on premises.

New Tree Ranch is fantastic.

The house is beautiful, the scenery spectacular and the overall feel is incredible. Ed and David are incredible hosts who take great care of the property and guests needs. We had a wonderful weekend and want to go back again next year.

An amazing experience that should not be missed.

The short version, you will not be sorry. Book and enjoy – everything! OK, the longer version. We booked very last minute as our prior plans fell through. Ed was so responsive and quickly got everything sorted fort the next day! Because we provided very little time, Ed outlined that the majority of staff wouldn’t be available as they were off. Not at all a problem for us as we wanted a pretty low profile stay. As you head through the quiet streets you are transported to another world. Heading up the driveway you are met with the large house on the left, a barn and chickens on the right. Kids already excited. You enter the house which is expansive and thoughtfully decorated. The owners have been very thoughtful about creating experiences throughout the house, from the piano playing to the various teas left for you to drink. We settle in and the next day we head to their farm area where they have so many types of plants growing, each with a story of their own. The owners took the time to explain how they planted each one, why they did it and what their vision of the property was. We head back to the main house area and for the next few days, the kids were in and out of the pool, by the patio with the fire on, checking in on the chickens or heading to the private lake for a canoe ride. We were so relaxed that we asked to extend another day and not head back to work 🙂 Again the owners accommodated immediately. This is a place for those who want to get away from it all, enjoy the peace and quiet of nature but still have all the mod cons you would want. It was certainly hard to leave and head back home. Thank you for an AMAZING stay that I would recommend to anyone wanting to relax, reconnect and enjoy life.

Simply fabulous

Even better was the food itself, which was both an education and delightful making full use of the garden produce, and the care from Ed and his team. We were treated like royalty, enjoyed new friendships and came away with new ideas about responsible living. I can’t recommend the ranch more highly.

I truly enjoyed it.

They put on a cooking class for us, and I would normally never dream of doing something like that. But it was fantastic, easy/no pressure and what we cooked actually tasted fantastic. I truly enjoyed it. Makes me feel I might even cook at home some day (if I can find the kitchen)!

A magical retreat

A magical retreat! What can you say when a property completely exceeds your expectations and provides the perfect setting for a long-weekend away? Relaxing by the pool, enjoying a cozy evening by the fire, and movie night all feel second nature in this beautiful ranch home. A visit to the on-property bio-dynamic farm completes the experience and reminds you what harmony with nature looks like. Have a dinner in the garden and you are transported to another world. Ed, David and his team are 5-star in every way. Be prepared to be amazed.

You leave refreshed...

When the world is closing in on you, and you feel it spinning out of control, it is time to head to NewTree Ranch!! What an amazingly beautiful location with so much to learn. From the luxurious residence, the fun of the lake and the deliciousness of the edible farm. You leave refreshed and with a new outlook on how to make sure we are doing the best for ourselves and our planet.

...the experiences at New Tree Ranch are priceless.

From the eyes of a 2-year-old, there truly is no better place on earth. Whether it’s going to the chicken coop to get eggs, riding the ATV to the garden to pick vegetables for lunch or seeing a sky full of stars, the experiences at New Tree Ranch are priceless. As Charlie’s mom, I am thrilled that he is able to learn firsthand where the food he eats comes from and that he is able to run around and connect directly with nature.

I felt I was working with nature

I came to New Tree Ranch in search of a higher connection to nature and myself. Two years into farming here, I realized it wasn’t just a higher connection I needed, but also a way to slow down and understand my surroundings. As I was taking care of the plants in the garden, I realized I was also taking care of myself. One day, I was holding a flower in the palm of my hand accompanied by a bee. Feeling the vibration and gentleness of the bee, I felt no worry of being stung. Instead I felt a part of this symbiotic relationship. And for the first time, I felt I was working with nature and the symmetry between the plant, the bee and myself. This is when time stopped and I was able to start living together in harmony with nature and my family at New Tree Ranch.

...a feeling of deep peace

The true lure of New Tree isn’t something that can be translated into words. For me, it’s simply a feeling of deep peace that I feel whenever I am there and the immediate desire to return as soon as I leave.
