On September 10th, we embarked on a full-spectrum farm-to-table experience at the picturesque Sonoma Hills Farm in Petaluma. The event was magical, bringing together budtenders, industry luminaries, media, influencers, and key figures from Kiva and Sonoma Hills Farm for an unforgettable night of gastronomy and cannabis pairing.
A Co-Branded Passport to Adventure
Attendees received a unique co-branded "farm guide" that would serve as their passport to an evening filled with excitement. Each guide acted as an invitation and held the key to unlocking the farm's history and unique magic.
A Warm Welcome with an Infused Twist
Upon arrival, our guests were greeted with a tantalizing infused mocktail, setting the tone for a night of elevated experiences. The first stamp in their passport was a delightful nod to what lay ahead – a journey of discovery and delight.
Setting the Stage: Scavenger Hunt and Flower Picking
Before the sun had set, the scavenger hunt kicked off, challenging participants to collect photos and unique identifications. This playful prelude added excitement to the evening as guests explored the farm's beauty, history, and diverse offerings.
Guests were invited to partake in flower picking and arranging – a therapeutic and immersive experience connecting them to the heart of the farm. For those seeking to capture the memories, a photo booth was also on hand, ensuring that every elevated laugh was captured.
Gastronomic Delights by a French Laundry Chef
Guests were treated to a culinary masterpiece crafted by a talented chef from the renowned French Laundry. Elevated chicken sandwiches graced the tables, complemented by single-serve key lime pies and grilled peaches atop a crumble or cheesecake, offering a symphony of flavors inspired by Kiva and Sonoma Hills Farm's limited edition collab edibles, Grilled Peach x Cherry Cheesecake chews and Key Lime Pie x Grandi Guava gummies. Both were infused with live resin from Sonoma Hills Farm's regenerative flowers.
Spoiled with Swag
Our guests left with a treasure trove of goodies, including a collaborative Lost Farm x Sonoma Hills Farm guide, high-quality garden snips, and an exclusive harvest apron. To top it off, they also received two of Sonoma Hills Farm's pre-rolls, which offered a firsthand taste of the farm's holistically sun-grown flowers.
Sweet Endings and Toasts
Under the starlit sky, guests savored s'mores and custom mocktails, a fitting end to a night of cannabis appreciation and camaraderie.
In retrospect, our intimate affair with Sonoma Hills Farm was not just an event; it was an unforgettable journey into the heart of cannabis culture and the beauty of this unique regenerative farm. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all who joined us on this magical night and look forward to many more shared adventures in the future. Cheers to Sonoma Hills Farm, Lost Farm, and the promise of more remarkable experiences to come!
