Wicked Kiwi Campout
Our Kiwi Campout will take you to a relaxed but refreshingly wild Pacific Ocean experience in the beautiful Mendocino area - yes - you can pitch your tent and then pitch in!
On Saturday we will share an afternoon of Wine & Cheese tasting, a dinner of NZ Lamb graciously donated by our friends at Atkins Ranch and a scrummy NZ dessert selection purchased from a Kiwi - Shef Genni who owns Fleet Street Pies.
To round it out, there will be NZ Pies direct from the Pie Press for Sunday dinner. In true Kiwi style we'll all be chipping in and contributing salads and nibbles, but more about that later.
GREAT ANNOUNCEMENT: Entertainment from a local band is being very kindly donated by Gower Smith on one of these evenings, and we are open to fun suggestions for other activities. You may want to explore further up the Coast during the daytime, or walk down to the attached beach. As it's a Kiwi affair, we will all be 'pitching in' to leave no footprint, of course.
There will be a per Camper cost to cover the practicalities such as Porta Potties and Wash station rentals, and of course the yummy food options mentioned above.
Tickets for this 21-and-over event will first be made available to SFKiwis members, so be sure to sign up/renew as they will likely sell out fast as we escape COVID restrictions and return to the great outdoors. Given the limited paddock size and the need to ensure the steer and alpacas on the property still have plenty of roaming territory, the event will be capped at 40 people.
Ticket price covers costs such as porta potties, several glasses of NZ wine for the wine tasting event, NZ desserts, NZ pies, and Sunday breakfast (bacon, avocado and croissants).
Guests are expected to bring their own drinking water/additional drinks/food, their favorite car camping set up, and to help pitch in with side-dishes to go with the Kiwi lamb and pies in the evenings.
In the spirit of leave-no-trace camping, guests will be expected to help pack some of the trash out from the beautiful property.
Guests will need to sign a liability waiver given the risks associated with camping on a working farm, and there being exposed cliffs.
