How One Family Ditched Beverly Hills to Create the Tiny Farm of Their Dreams

·Editor in Chief

Calvin Zara decided to move his family from the comfort of Beverly Hills, California to a sprawling property in rural Ojai, California. He sought a simpler life - one connected to the earth - and remodeled a rambling compound with tremendous potential, into five private rentable cottages where visitors can stay and be treated to the experience that only a working farm can lend you.

Zara produces everything from the milk and cheese that you consume to the chairs and tables you sit on and eat at.

He is a true Maker, who believes in working for and creating what you enjoy in life, and The Thacher House is absolute proof that it’s worth every early morning rise.
