A Destination Event

How To Make Reservations

If your next event craves an authentic and rustic setting, then our beautiful, original redwood barn is the perfect place to gather. We host a variety of events including weddings, Sunday brunch/luncheons, family reunions, memorial services and birthday parties.  Our location on the Mendocino Coast provides an escape from the city, with access to local amenities just a few minutes drive from the farm. We are easy to find, right on Highway One, just 4 miles north of Mendocino Village and 4 miles south of Fort Bragg.  Jug Handle State Natural Reserve is next door, offering numerous hiking trails in Jackson State Forest and access to the famed Mendocino County Headlands and Jug Handle Beach.

By choosing Fortunate Farm for your event you are supporting a locally owned and operated multi-generational family farm. Because farming is our first order of business, we include a flower and produce allowance in the rental price. Orders over the minimum allowance amounts are additional and offered at wholesale prices. It is our great pleasure to share our farm offerings with you and your guests!  Your genuine, rustic farm to table experience might include a walk in our flower fields, dancing in the barn, or mingling among the olive trees while enjoying the finest produce grown with love and care right on the property. An event at Fortunate Farm is a truly unique farm experience.
We are currently taking a limited number of reservations for Summer 2017 and beyond. Please contact our Event Coordinator at [email protected] to check availability, schedule a tour, and reserve your next event! (Dates are subject to availability. List prices are subject to change in 2018. All offerings are subject to terms and availability.)

Parking zones will be provided for your guests. The maximum seated capacity for the barn is 90 people, and is based upon the use of standard 5’/60” round tables, with 10 guests at each table. The maximum property capacity included in the base rental price is 100 people, including children over 1 year of age.

Fortunate Farm will do its very best to work around your event date(s) and time(s); however, some daily farm routines will have to continue, and there might be unavoidable sounds and smells associated with some daily farm operations.
