Located only 20 minutes from the Big Bear ski resorts in southern california, this farmstay offers a peek into a rural lifestyle that disappeared for many when the family farm was sold, often generations ago. There is a pace to life on the farm that starts with the early morning wake-up call by the rooster and ends with quiet and total darkness at night, except for a fantastic view of the stars.
Who we are
Flip Flop Ranch is a family farm located in Lucerne Valley in the High Desert of San Bernardino County. We specialize in breeding endangered breeds of livestock that are at the point of extinction. Flip Flop Ranch farmstay has sheep, pigs, cows, chickens, bunches of barn cats (with plenty of kittens), geese, ducks, turkeys, goats, horses and more.
What we do
We aim to educate people, and especially kids, about the important connection between sustainable farming practices and individual health. The Flip Flop Ranch Farmstay gives kids and adults the opportunity learn about growing their own food and the connection between sustainable farming and health by offering a vacation rental for families to visit as well as day and overnight camping trip for groups.
Your visit starts off with a tour through the farm to learn where things are and to gain some basic knowledge about what we do and the types of livestock we raise. You are welcome to join us for feeding and milking in the morning and afternoon!
