Activities/Attractions: Templeton is a pleasant rural community located midway between Atascadero and Paso Robles in San Luis Obispo County. It was founded in 1886 when the Southern Pacific Railroad came through the area. Templeton has retained much of its historical character - many of the old buildings have been restored and are still in use today. New buildings are being built, but always with an eye to the past.

  • Templeton is located 30 minutes from the coast, both to the west and south
  • Within 35 minutes by car to Hearst San Simeon Monument
  • Lake Nacimiento, with over 166 miles of shoreline and water skiing, fishing and camping, is 22 miles to the northwest
  • Just north of Lake Nacimiento is San Antonio Lake
  • Five miles north of Templeton is the site of the Mid-State Fair, which attracts over 300,000 visitors during August each year and offers internationally renowned entertainers

Organic farming, by its very nature, demands a commitment to education since many people are ill-informed about the concept. We especially invite school tours but we enjoy sharing our farm and its many dynamics with any tour group that is interested in learning about organic farming.

We have had a wonderful experience with our interns. An internship consists of working 40 hours a week for a minimum of three months on our certified organic farm. We generally have three interns during the growing season.

General Information: Welcome to The Cottage at Hollyhock Farms in Templeton, California ... not only a beautiful slice of country living, it is one of the few remaining small farms that, unfortunately, keep disappearing from the landscape, where we farm organically, and we try something new every year. Our farm stay is a wonderful part of our operation and we host couples (or singles) who wish to experience the peace and quiet of rural living.

Tucked in the rolling hills of the Templeton draw, the cottage offers what few others can - the charm, beauty and pleasant wonders of an organic farm. Removed from the traffic and bustle of town, yet just minutes from Paso Robles or Atascadero. Our cottage is private and secure and offers:

  • a queen size, double-pillow mattress bed
  • a state-of-the-art climate control system (by remote in bed)
  • a wet-bar
  • sitting area
  • furnished with country antiques
  • a VCR/satellite unit with dozens of first rate movies
  • French doors are draped with heirloom Danish draperies
  • we will start your day with a full gourmet breakfast prepared with local, organic ingredients
  • our "honor system" roadside stand offers dozens of "just picked" fruits and vegetables
  • in the evening, relax on the adjoining patio with a glass of locally-produced award-winning wine
  • pick a bouquet from our "Bargain Bouquet" field  or check out the bouquets in our flower shop
