Camp & Sons is an idyllic 400 acre forest retreat on the west facing slope of Foster Mountain in central Mendocino County.
Our terraced organic flower and vegetable garden with its pathways,
arbors and ponds might be described as being in the “Formal
tradition – on the side of a mountain.
The orchard of 22 fruit and nut trees is over the hill just past
the labyrinth. We think it is certainly one of the most beautiful
and imaginative private gardens in California.
At the barn and Chicken Palace we have chickens and horses and sometimes sheep and pigs. Zoe our guard dog has an apartment there.
Aside from the garden and orchard, there are many hiking trails on the mountain which are old logging roads. The property was clear cut in the l950's and is now showing signs of recovery.
Most of the acreage we share with wonderful birds and animals including wild turkeys, two species of quail, the pileated and acorn woodpeckers, as well as white-tailed deer, the occasional bobcat, mountain lion and bear, raccoon and skunks. Snakes and lizards too: and things that go bump in the night! The latter usually keep to their special part of the mountain so a sighting is a rare but wonderful event.
