Wellllllcome to paradise! Meet Flora Farms, a 10 acre, organic farm-oasis situated in the foothills of San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. It grows for the on-site Flora’s Field Kitchen restaurant, as well as for Flora’s Grocery, and for the owners of the on-site Culinary Cottages (which all look magazine-cover-ready, by the way – you really need to take a moment for that swoon-worthy scroll!).
I cannot even tell you how special it was for my husband and I to visit this beautiful place a few weeks ago! It was a 40 minute drive for us from where we were staying in Cabo, but well worth the trip! We made late-lunch reservations, so we were pretty much the last people in the restaurant before it closed until dinner – it felt like we had the place to ourselves! After an outstannnding lunch, we strolled the lovely grounds, and also perused their adorable shop.
Here are some snaps we took of our special day….
Ooooooo, this fresh olive bread. Uh-mazing.
We were greeted with cold, refreshing cloths at our lunch table that overlooked one of the many gardens.
How cute is this menu?!
Meet my new favorite drink: the hibiscus mimosa (and that would be a real hibiscus flower inside it).
And my new favorite friend, Olive Bread. With real, buttery butter. Heavenly.
I know I’m being ridiculous, but this food was even more so – it was just so fresh, with outstanding flavors. Nothing was left on my plate (or bread basket).
I love that they do things like this!! So charming – makes me wish we lived there!!
So. This mango sorbet made me want to cry, it was that good. In fact, I told our waiter that, and I’m pretty sure he thought I was crazy (which is
probably totally true). It wasn’t just mango flavored, I was reallll mango all the way. I can still taste it, now (my heart just squeezed a little).
Then we roamed the beautiful grounds….
Here’s a peek at an outdoor space of one of the culinary cottages we walked by (be sure to see more photos here!).
Of course they grow olives. For the bread they make from scratch.
You know you’re gah-gah for a place when you’re in love with the loos! At the time, I thought it might be weird to take photos of toilet spaces, but now I wish we had – they were so cute! Complete with real, thick, fluffy white towels for hand-drying!
One last stroll along the gorgeous garden path.
They have this adorable, onsite store where you can buy organic, locally sourced, handcrafted, botanical body care products via Santo Cabo. I have the lotion in the “Blood Orange” scent, and wish I could have brought a whole crate of it home with me. So lightweight, super moisturizing, and it smells divine! They also sell these products at their markets.
Seriously, how amazing is this place?! And I barely scratched the surface of all the detail and intricacies of this extraordinary farm. I highly recommend a long visit, if you’re ever in the area!!
Until next time, Flora Farms….
