Magical Places do Exist

It’s been over two years since I first visited the Paicines Ranch. One taste and I knew this wasn’t just a ranch. It was an entire community harnassing their energies to make the world a better place. A place where magic really does happen.

From beautiful weddings, enlightening workshops, a regenerative approach to agriculture, educational outreach, a budding vineyard, and views that make your jaw drop, this is a place folks remember. Anything but just a ranch.

Erin and I were inspired by the intersect of this magnificent valley oak’s shadows and the lurking spirit of Halloween.
