Retreat To The Farm

the perfect retreat

About The Farm

Located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Delta on Grand Island, The Farm is a destination oasis ideal for farm stay retreats and weddings. With its old world farmhouse, expansive lawns, swimming pond, beach and fire places, The Farm Grand Island is the perfect setting for all who wish to dedicate time and space to slow down, rest, play and connect in a meaningful way. Walk the fields, practice yoga on the outdoor yoga deck and enjoy shared farm-to-table meals from our 15 acre organic field, these are some of the highlight moments that compels kindred spirits to return to The Farm season after season.

Our Story

The Farm owners Leila and Robyn

The Farm, owned and operated by mother-daughter duo Robyn Brown and Leila Burrows, is 100 acres of rich delta farmland dedicated to organic farming, wine grapes, weddings and Farm Stay Retreats. 

In 1879, widow Agnes Brown moved from San Francisco to the tiny hamlet of Walnut Grove to purchase the local hotel from the hamlet's founders, founded in 1850 at the height of California's Gold Rush. Accompanied by her son, Alex Brown and his bride Kate Stanford, the family grew and prospered in businesses and soon farming. 

Robyn and Leila are 5th and 6th generation of Walnut Grove, taking up from where Agnes, Alex, and Kate left off. Almost 140 years later, the family continues in farming, and now is back in hospitality too. Today, The Farm also serves as a retreat location and wedding venue, inviting Bay Area and Northern California residents as well as visitors afar to experience and connect to life on The Farm. 

The Farm is where I go to press pause, to slow down and to connect deeply. Something about the beauty of the land and the likeminded people that join together to share a moment in time; I always leave The Farm feeling renewed, refreshed and recommitted to all that is good in the world.
