The Ranch doesn’t consider itself a weight loss facility, but weight loss is a frequent product of the experience because of the combination of healthy eating and increased activity. The weather is so wonderful, guests enjoy the outdoor dining patios, where splashing fountains and shady live trees welcome breakfast and lunch diners all year.
The semi vegetarian cuisine features an abundance of organic fruits and vegetables grown right on the farm. Visits to the organic farm take place almost daily: a favorite is an early morning guided hike that combines a 2-mile walk through rolling meadows and chaparral with a welcoming breakfast, a tour of the gardens, and an introduction to the principles of organic farming.
Set in the heart of the six-acre farm is La Cocina Que Canta Cooking School, where guests learn the magic of cooking with collorful, aromatic, just-picked organic ingredients.Working together, each class creates and dines on a delightful meal – an unforgettable culinary memory.
A program of lectures, games, workshops, world-class entertainers (musicians especially), arts and crafts classes, and various other programs throughout the week are a vital part of the Ranch experience.
Week-long packages start at approximately $3,250 per person for a double occupancy room and are inclusive of complimentary transportation from San Diego airport and back, meals, snacks, accommodations and a wide array of fitness classes.
