A SAD FAREWELL FROM FARM CAMP
As we continue to make progress and turn more of our efforts towards our farm, we're sad to say goodbye to our Farm Camp summer program! We are proud to have been able to provide a hands-on farm experience for all of our camp kids and are sincerely grateful to our past campers and their families for their support along the years. We will continue to offer various farm-based activities during our annual festivals and events for our future farmers and growers and look forward to seeing you all there!
A REAL WORKING ORGANIC FARM
At 123 Farm, we embrace forward thinking and new ideas that promote sustainability, environmental health, and consequently, human health. All produce grown on the property is certified organic and comes from heirloom, non-GMO seed. Education is our greatest strength.
Did you know our summer farm camp was featured on Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution website? We were recognized for our farm-to-table cooking class program.
THE FARM EXPERIENCE
On the farm our animals are treated with the care they would receive if they were our own personal pets. Each is given enough space to stretch their wings and enjoy free range eating on an all organic and soy-free diet. The cycle of life plays out entirely on the property with birth, then reproduction, and a peaceful and relaxed life prior to an eventual death. At times, the kids have been lucky enough to see all of this within one week! Our animals are used to children and don't mind being touched, hand fed, and picked up. This open interaction is an unforgettable experience for the kids and connects them to nature in ways nothing else can.
"My son had a great experience at Farm Camp! He was excited to come home and show me what he made and learned. The photo book was a priceless memento to share with his friends and family."

FARM CAMP MAGAZINE
CHERISH YOUR MEMORIES FROM CAMP
Digital photos don't last forever unless they get printed... and we know how that goes! To make sure the campers can cherish their memories for years to come, we create a custom photo magazine for each week of Farm Camp. The magazine is filled with over 100 pages of camper photos, recipes and information on organic farming. These magazines usually arrive 4 weeks after camp ends and can be picked up at the ranch (or have it shipped to your home for $10). The magazine is FREE with your farm camp registration. Additional copies are available at $40 per book.
This is the climax of the week, when kids learn how fun it is to cook vegetables they have picked with their own hands and experience healthy food that actually tastes good! The recipes used are based on the seasonal crops that are ready and available at the farm. The cooking class is accompanied by a discussion on the topic of processed foods, and an encouragement to converse with their families about making healthy and sustainable choices for their own lives. Parents and Guardians are invited to join their children in our historic olive grove, enjoying our beautiful southern California sunshine and the feast the kids and kitchen staff have prepared together.
Lunch is provided in the program fee. Lunch is prepared in house by our on-site restaurant: The Grand Oak Farm to Table using over 70% organic ingredients. Click here to view the menu.
