Spring on the Farm

March - May 2021

There’s nothing quite like the way spring awakens our little corner of the North Valley. As the days lengthen ever so slightly and temperatures slowly begin to warm, our dedicated farmers germinate vegetables, herbs and flowers in the greenhouse, grown from seeds saved from previous seasons. Lavender cuttings from our fields were taken to the greenhouse during the winter months, have since sprouted roots and are now transplanted into larger pots to encourage more growth. Soon they'll move outdoors, joining the rest of our magnificent lavender fields. Outside, our beloved lavender plants are lovingly sheared to promote new growth as the weather warms, and in the kitchen gardens, hearty greens and root vegetables are seeded directly into the cool soil. Daffodils and crocus slowly peek their heads above ground, and our flowering trees burst into color seemingly overnight. Most years, migrating Canada geese make the farm their winter home, and welcome a gaggle of goslings who sweetly parade across the property and learn to swim in our lotus pond.

As spring brings new life to the farm, there are countless ways to spend this wonderful season with us. From reimagined lodging packages ideal for a staycation and fresh dining experiences to several new spring activities, all are thoughtfully curated with wellness and safety in mind. Our offerings will grow as the season continues, so be sure to check back for the latest goings-on around the farm during this lovely time of year.

Culinary Experiences

JOSÉ PASTOR SELECTIONS
WINE DINNER | MARCH 21, 2021

Our Director of Wine & Spirits, Dylan Storment, is thrilled to welcome Chris Barnes, Director of National Sales for José Pastor Selections, and Mara Perrigo, Favorite Brands Wine Representative, for a dinner that celebrates fine Spanish wines. Sharing many of the same values as Los Poblanos, the Spanish wine importer José Pastor Selections believes that the best wines are those made by growers who respect their land by using the most natural means possible, often by practicing organic and biodynamic farming. These producers follow methods handed down over many generations, often use indigenous grape varieties, and farm and harvest by hand. Using indigenous yeasts during fermentation, sulphur additions, if any, are kept to a minimum. Please join us for an unforgettable evening and hear from our special guests while enjoying magnificent Spanish wines alongside a six-course menu developed by the talented Campo culinary team to perfectly complement the wine selection. This special experience will replace regular evening dinner service and be hosted on Campo's socially-distanced outdoor patio. $165 per person + tax and service.
