Bear Flag Farm

Bear Flag Farm, Stevenson Bridge Road, Winters, CA, United States



Get married surrounded by fields of lavender, take portraits in the orangerie, dine in the orchards, and dance under a canopy of stars at this gorgeous Northern California farm. Located about half an hour north of Napa, this Winters property is the perfect spot for a spring, summer or fall wedding if you’re on the hunt for a venue that’s got a real French garden party feel to it.

We recently sat down with owner Tina of Bear Flag Farm and talked all things labor of love about the property. If you like the idea of hosting your wedding in a small town in Northern California that’s just off-the-grid enough to feel totally charming, this could be your wedding spot.
