Perfect for out-of-towners and locals alike, Harley Farms’ tours and field-to-fork dinners set the scene for country-style romance. A restored Victorian hayloft on farmland halfway between San Francisco and Santa Cruz transforms into a backyard restaurant awash in candlelight and brightened with freshly picked flowers. Chefs prepare a five-course seasonal meal with ingredients from the property, including some of the world's finest goat cheeses made with milk from the farm’s resident herd. Guests are invited to bring their own wine, beer, or other beverages. And while children are welcome to frolic on the farm with baby goats during the day, evenings are reserved for adults only. Perhaps a date night is in your near future? Just know you'll need to book well in advance, as these intimate events fill up fast, and up to a year in advance. Watch the farm's website closely for details, typically posted in November.
