Nestled within the rugged hills of Mendocino County lies CKA Ranch, a private culinary center surrounded by 134 acres of thriving Fir and Madrone forest and some of nature’s most beautiful walking trails and scenery. It was 2001 when the ground was first broken, and since then CKA Ranch has really begun to take shape; primarily due to the vision and innovation of its owners, Ron Edwards and Cecelia Star Edwards. For many years Ron and Cecelia have operated Classic Kitchen Associates, an upscale catering operation located in Healdsburg, CA. It was their love of this business that led them the creation of CKA Ranch and has since driven them to be leaders in the field of elite catering. “It was our dream to create a lifestyle culinary center where we could teach others the art of entertaining, and to do it in such a way that they could learn to really appreciate it, rather than finding it to be a chore.” That dream has now become more of a reality as CKA Ranch continues to grow into a unique multi-faceted operation that is sure to impress even the most discriminating guest.

Some of the highlights include:

• A well equipped lifestyle training facility
• A comfortable guest house
• A completely remodeled guest cabin
• A selection of young Arbequina Olive trees preparing to be the future source of olive oil
• A spectacular Lavender Garden
• A private (not for profit) Vineyard
• An organic garden with a selection of heirloom tomatoes and fresh salad greens
• Private Cooking Classes with Chef Ron
• An fresh herb garden that is used in their daily cooking and training sessions, including an impressive selection of Thyme Varieties (English, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Coconut, Lavender, Silver, Caraway)
