Complete the booking form below. Be as specific as possible regarding your intentions for your retreat.
Once your dates are confirmed, we will invoice you via PayPal for the deposit. You will have two weeks to pay the deposit after initial booking. If we have not received your deposit after two weeks, the dates will be released for booking to the public.
Upon receipt of your deposit we will send a confirmation email with details for your retreat. You will receive documents for yourself, the retreat leader, and for your guests.
About 2 weeks before your retreat, you will receive an email requesting the number of registrants, any dietary restrictions (if we are doing the cooking), and your estimated arrival time.
Farm to Fork
We specialize in serving bountiful farm to fork buffet style vegetarian/vegan meals that are both healthy and delicious. Our dishes are made from scratch and feature in-season, organic, fresh, and whole ingredients whenever possible. Most of the vegetables and fruit comes from our own gardens, or from local farms. Each meal begins with a short circle blessing and brief introduction by the cook. If you let us know about any special food needs ahead of time, we will do our best to accommodate them.
We ask that each person wash their own dishes and utensils, and sign up for at least one after-meal clean up or other housekeeping job. If we are providing meals for your retreat, we will not have a refrigerator or kitchen space for you to store or cook your own food. You may bring your own pre-cooked food with your own cooler and ice.
We can be flexible with you up to a 15-minute delay, and ask that you also be flexible with us for possible delays on our end, although this is not common. If your group is delayed more than 15 minutes the meal will go out on the buffet and be left for you.

Please choose your meal plan at the time of booking. We are a working farm and community and depend on a steady meal schedule to continue our work here and therefore meals plans should not be mixed or changed, although Brunch for Meal Plan A on the last day is possible.

Procedures and Policies
We cannot accommodate children or pets.
Our neighbors are very sensitive to traffic on our road so we ask that you not arrive or use the road after 10:00 pm or before 7:00 am and only drive in and out when necessary.
We do not allow alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, or firearms on the property.
We do not allow meat or fish to be cooked in the Retreat Barn kitchen (Prepared cold meats and/or fish may be served if you are doing your own meal preparation).
We ask that every registered guest sleep at Sky Meadow. For guests desiring more privacy, primitive cabins are available at no extra charge and upgraded accommodations are available at additional cost.
The retreat barn will be open for your use at 4PM the afternoon of your first day. Please be sure that a leader or organizer is here to greet people before any participants arrive. We ask that no one come into the main building for any reason before 4PM on the day your retreat begins unless you have clearly negotiated another time with us before you arrive.
We ask all guests to observe quiet hours inside the retreat barn or outdoors after 10:00PM with the exception of the dance pavilion building.
Please be cleaned up and out by 2PM on your last day. To keep our costs down, we ask each group to clean up and leave the buildings and rooms as you found them, which typically takes ½ hour.
We encourage carpooling as much as possible as our parking space is limited.
We do not allow retreat leaders to bring contract labor for services such as massage, catering or cooking (We can provide those services here).
If you plan to have Sky Meadow Retreat provide your meal service, please review the details provided on the Ancillary Services page and the pricing above.
