Activities For Everyone

Get outside and enjoy the day.


Beautiful Venue

Open space, beautiful awning, lawn, and a grill. Everything you need for a party!


Horseback Riding

Obsidia, our matriarch, loves to be brushed. Hop on up and enjoy time with her.


Petting Zoo

Have fun with our farm animals. Our chickens and goats would love a visitor.



Help us grow nutritious and delicious food and you can eat some as well.

The Wallace Family


Our Founders, also siblings, Sim Wallace & Sarah Buncom laid the groundwork for what has evolved into a beautiful legacy.

Sim and Sarah were introduced to examples of entrepreneurship and ownership early on by their parents, Deartis and Theresa Wallace. Born in Texas and raised in Coachella Valley, they grew up loving rural living.


Our mission is to serve as a bridge for the broader community to access an immersive agricultural experience, while being good stewards of the earth. We are working to become a natural resource hub that fosters a healthy environment for education and innovation.

Our motto, Ujima: Collectively working to implement solutions and ideas that build and sustain the land for future generations.
