About Preston Raisin
I am a native San Franciscan and I spent my life appreciating the holistic, spiritual and healthy life of farming, outdoors and a love for farm hospitality. While I spent most of my years on Wall St, today I spend my time between my Atlas Capital competing against Wall st high fees, lack of transparency and market timing as well as a permaculture life. My wife is a UCSF trained pediatrician, together, and we are raising five kids and a dog named Ocho. I am a graduate of UCLA, I swim, box and golf when I am not farming and working hard to bring back Sonoma crop agriculture. Sonoma County is a very special, fertile and gentle slice of the greater northern California and US in general. We welcome visitors to our farm even if you are not staying with us to enjoy our seasonal crops, pig roasts and yoga classes. Be sure to sign up for our email newsletter at SonomaBroadwayFarms.com to discover more opportunities to visit the farm!
Preston Raisin purchased this House in 2012
Why Preston Raisin chose Sonoma
Sonoma Broadway Farms was named by me because of the historic reference to farming in Sonoma as well as the influence of my neighbor Williams-Sonoma, the flagship store in Chuck William's vast operation, which is located on the same street as my farm. Early on I strongly felt that removing and restoring my barn structures, working with Sonoma County, in such a key location will be ideal. My guests will enjoy the best of both worlds; feeling isolated like a midwestern farm but within walking distance to downtown Sonoma and surrounding fun activities.
What makes this House unique
After purchasing my farm land in 2012, I began restoring my abundant soil with cover crops, row crops and farm animals. I then worked closely with the county and my neighboring church, in order to pull the required permits for sewer access and building permits. Today we enjoy brand new constructed buildings but with the same farm process of offering over 30 varietals farm grown food to be pulled through our modern kitchen appliances. I built me dream barn houses and planted our surrounding landscapes all on my own vision with careful teamwork with my sub contractors and landscape professionals. I look forward to sharing and continuing my vision with our vrbo guests. Because I built my structures from the ground up, my vision was driven purely on the beauty and potential of my farm land. My dream was to restore the historic property with a modern eye. Our two Barnhouses were designed to bring the beauty of the outdoors inside with 40-foot vaulted ceilings. We added 46 solar panels to the rooftops of our new buildings, which help us meet all of our energy needs at the farm. I'm very proud of this special piece of land and the magical space it's become with the help of our community, and I look forward to sharing and continuing my vision with our vrbo guests.

We stayed here for my bachelorette party and it was perfect! The home was as-advertised on VRBO and it suited our group spectacularly. We had 13 women and all were able to comfortably spread out and we had no issues with enough showers or hot water. We would love to come back out again just for a retreat!
Your crew are quiet as church mice, neat and easy to communicate with! Elizabeth was also great as your group planner so thank for that hand off! Best to you and your nuptials! Please come back! Pres
Sanctuary in Sonoma
Everything was truly amazing. The house has everything you could need. The host/owner and his on site staff are incredibly welcoming, accommodating and made our girls weekend absolutely wonderful. I could go on and on. Just know the pictures do zero justice for this little slice of heaven. I will return.
Great Stay at Sonoma Broadway Farms!
I stayed at Sonoma Broadway Farms with a group of girlfriends to celebrate my 40th birthday and enjoy wine country, we could not have asked for a better experience! Preston and his team were friendly, responsive and truly interested in making sure we had a great stay. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The property is beautiful! We loved sitting by the fire in the evenings and the outdoor yoga pavilion was an added bonus. The location is perfect. We easily walked to Sonoma Plaza or could have used the bikes provided. It was a memorable trip and experience and we would definitely stay there again!
Equally Michelle is a low maintenance, kind and organized guest. My farm was spotless, during and following Michelle’s crews stay. Please come back!
Wonderful location to host a team getaway
Preston's farm was absolutely incredible and my team enjoyed every minute we spent there. I highly recommend this location for team offsites. We had a mix of formal and informal activities and the location worked for all of it! He was incredibly response both before and during the trip, and took great care of us! We'll be back!
Salima and her company Class Dojo was an absolute pleasure to have on our farm! Salima was clear, organized and very neat! Salima please return anytime with team Dojo! Warmly, Preston Raisin
Amazing property and unforgettable experience!
Sonoma Broadway Farms is such a beautiful property with gardens, farm animals, games, beautiful home with a spectacular kitchen. It is a perfect place for an outing for work or with your best friends. We were 15 girls (UCSB grads that get together every year at a different location). The location is amazing as well as you are in walking distance to downtown Sonoma (shopping restaurants, wineries etc!). Bikes/cruisers are available, yoga area, check out the farm and what they are growing--pick your own veggies :))) Plenty of room where you can have privacy or all be together hanging out on the bean bags. Fun bunks! Kitchen is to die for if you like to cook or they have a chef that can do meals for you! They have all the modern amenities, espresso machines we loved :) Large TV where you can watch movies, we did a slide show/video of our annual getaways. Preston the host/owner is wonderful and even toured the property with us. He puts a lot of extra touches that truly make this a special place!! Whether you want to relax and have massages, have a fun dinner party, ride bikes do yoga or and wine taste at all the wineries near by. So much to do, need to stay longer next time :)))
Thank you ladies for the thoughtful note, experience and helpful hints to be a better farm host! Your crew asked the right questions, a must visit in advance to my farm and then put the final touches to make their stay high energy, my chef loves them and they left me a host gift! Please come back ladies!!! 😂🙏🏽👨🏽🍳🐝🍷
Beautiful, relaxing, and so well located!
We came here with 15 ladies for a landmark birthday. The house and property were so amazing we barely left!
The owner, Preston, is extremely helpful, the accommodations were perfect for our group, and we loved the property. We booked the massage therapist that Preston recommends, and the girls who were interested got massages. The chef dinner was so delicious, and we actually hired a chef to come in another night because we wanted to take advantage of the setting.
Definitely a great place to begin a new year! Thank you Preston!
Anne your crew was so fun to meet, immediately understood and appreciated everything about my farm inside and out. Our masseuse and chef had a ball with Anne, Hilary and all the lovely ladies! Come back please!
Nestled just inside Sonoma Valley's Carneros wine region, about a mile from the town's historic plaza, sits a picturesque farm, meeting space and retreat venue, built with the simple intention of bringing people together to restore spirits, nourish souls, and indulge in the bounty of the land.
