Family Night at The Cocktail Farm

No, it’s not all about cocktails, even though Kevin spent last year working nights as a bartender just for fun. That’s just the grab line. This is the Bay Area’s largest mulberry orchard, with 12 years of farmers market experience. We do a lot of stuff here that just doesn’t happen at a regular Palo Alto residence. Choose some ideas below, and then discuss your family night plan with Kevin at

Activity-based famiily fun: your and your kids will split the wood, build the fire, make the dough, decorate and cook the pizzas. The pizza house is a self-contained separate structure where you and your family can hang out and enjoy private time together over the meal, and then maybe do some campfire desserts. Email Kevin on

A typical Family Night at theCocktailFarm is 3 hours. Here’s some program options to choose from; the contract will be tailored to your interests. What’s the cost? Negotiable, but imagine taking your whole family to a very fancy restaurant or a day at the ski slopes. Your experience could include:

• Pizza House Dinner: you split the wood, build the fire, make the dough, let it rise while we do something else, roll out the dough, decorate, cook, devour.

• Beehive observation: pull on protective gear and get to know the girls who make our jam and cocktails just a little bit sweeter.
