Where She Stayed:
Terra Farm + Manor
So exclusive the address is not even public.
Enter the 100,000-plus acre historic ranch at TERRA Farm + Manor and immerse yourself in a true farm-to-table getaway. This working farm in Prescott (two hours north of Phoenix) offers both hands-on cooking classes and luxury accommodations. The manor has 8 comfortable rooms that are infused with a rustic feel; freshly farmed produce; exclusive cooking classes taught by renowned chefs alongside winemakers; and a wide range of activities reflective of the traditional lifestyle of the American West. You will bring home full bellies and culinary expertise that you can showcase in your own kitchen. Grow in your cooking skills, impress your future guests and enjoy the farm that brings the dishes of your dreams to life.
The property is perfectly equipped for group buyouts to host exclusive getaways, family reunions, or executive team retreats. No request is too lavish for this culinary haven where you can delight in any color of eggs, whisky aged longer than you, or the cleanest cuts of meat around. It's a true hidden gem in the high desert.
Every cooking class at TERRA is custom designed for each visit and determined by the season and guests' culinary adventure level. During Christina's time, she experienced Farm Discovery: A Taste of TERRA Farm, which focused on springtime delicacies.
During the course, award-winning Arizona Chef James Porter guided guests on an exclusive culinary adventure that combines the abundance of produce, wines and meats from TERRA's farm and surrounding area with global delicacies available during this limited time.
Every stay at TERRA farm + manor is a culinary adventure created to satisfy a range of eatable obsessions. Your visit will be filled with hands-on classes, spectacular meals and countless activities, as well as tours and day trips to the surrounding area.
