Welcome to Country Flat Farm! Our farm is nestled in the coastal mountains of Big Sur, California where we grow delicious fruits and vegetables year round. We are the Eichorn family and have been living here since 1983. Back when our journey began, we were searching for a piece of land where we could build a sustainable home, raise our children in a healthy, pristine environment and have a small family farm. The land was pretty much raw and untouched by human hands except for some logging activity early in the 20th century. Upon visiting Country Flat for the first time, Peter Eichorn, the dad and farmer, crawled through the dense native vegetation so he could touch and examine the soil to determine if it were suitable to sustain our dreams. It more than met his expectations and the rest is history!
We built a rammed earth home and have been living “off the grid” on solar power all these years. We and the land are blessed and sustained by a sweet-water stream. Over the years we have provided organic vegetables for the local Palo Colorado Canyon community where we are located. Currently, we primarily focus on our beekeeping endeavors and our Meyer lemon crop. Click on the “Produce” tab for more information about where our products are available.
We also offer a cottage available for rental for 30 nights or more where guests can enjoy the serenity of our unique farm. Please click on the “Rental Cottage” tab for more information.
