This week’s Resort Report features three NorCal destinations that’ll ensure you’re heart will be left in (or near) San Francisco.
The Stanford Inn Becomes Nation’s First Vegan Resort
Northern California gem, The Stanford Inn, located in Mendocino, recently announced its re-launch as a premier sustainable destination and the nations only completely Vegan resort.
The Inn’s decision to make sustainability a priority wasn’t a move to jump on the green bandwagon. In fact, founders Jeff and Joan Stanford have been incorporating environmentally cognizant practices into the Stanford Inn for more than three decades.
Of particular note is their on-site gourmet, vegan restaurant, Ravens’, which supports sustainable agriculture and organic farming through their purchasing practices and their own USDA-California Certified Organic Farm, known as Big River Nurseries. All produce served in the restaurant is organic, with much of it grown onsite at Big River Nurseries. Ravens’ Restaurant is central to the Stanford’s philosophy – they strive to prepare cuisine for their guests that enhances their lives though taste, nutrition and visual appeal, while acknowledging their better sensibilities.
