The SpaceOur 26-foot camper is located on one corner of our farm. It's fully furnished, with a kitchen, full bathroom, a bedroom with four bunkbeds and an open space with with a queen-sized bed, pull-out sofa, dining table and full kitchen. There is also a stained wood deck with a nice view of the vineyards and Mount Diablo. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the swimming pool, which is in the backyard adjacent to the camper. There is also space for parking on the farm. Interaction with GuestsAs a nonprofit community farm, we have a rotating group of 10-12 volunteers in their 20s from around the world who live in two RVs that are next to the Airbnb RV. We are a nice and respectful group of hard-working people who are usually at the plot or farmers' market during the morning and early afternoon and come back to the farm for the rest of the day.
There are privacy fences on two sides of the trailer, while the other two sides are bordered by rows of grapevines.
The kitchen is fully furnished (fridge, freezer, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker) and has all the utensils and cookware to make your own meals.
The camper is near a fenced-in yard where three friendly and sociable dogs live. The NeighborhoodWe are only about an hour northeast of San Francisco: easily accessible as a weekend getaway yet far enough to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
The camper is located on the property of First Generation Farmers (FGF), a nonprofit community farm founded in 2013 with the aim of getting more young people involved in farming at a time when the average farmer in the U.S. is 58. FGF also donates most of its organically grown produce to local food banks and at farmers' markets. The money received through Airbnb reservations will be used by the nonprofit to advance its causes.
FGF is located in the East Bay Area, a fertile and highly productive region that is an important source of fresh food for the Bay Area. We grow organic produce year-round, including kale, beets, kohlrabi, melons, tomatoes, Swiss chard, lettuce, and other types of vegetables. We are also home to four baby Nigerian dwarf goats and a brood of about 20 roosters and laying hens. Getting AroundThe camper is less than a mile from Knightsen, a small town with a corner store, bar and post office. We are also a few miles from Brentwood and Oakley, two booming exurbs with plenty of shopping options and sightseeing.
FGF is a 20-minute drive from the Pittsburg/Bay Point Bart station (Bay Area train system) and about an hour from Sacramento. We can pick you up or drop you off at the Bart station for $20. Other Things to NoteSometimes the dogs bark too much. Please let us know immediately if they are bothering you and we will put them in the house.
