Abbey Road Farm: Master Plan
We were approached to define and coordinate an overarching vision of the 82 acre farm when it was purchased by new owners. With the slogan of “Sip, Celebrate, Stay,” Abbey Road Farm had many disparate site functions to accommodate, such as an active bed and breakfast, a winery, over 50 acres of vineyards, 10 acres of organic vegetable farming, an active population of farm animals, an events center, and many venue locations. The clients wanted to unify the site into a cohesive vision, while ensuring streamlined infrastructure for visitors and the more agricultural portions of the farm/vineyard. As part of this process, one of our main tasks was coordination to bring site functions into compliance with past and present planning decisions. This master plan was a logistical feat of coordination, involving water rights experts, vineyard planners, landscape architects, fire marshalls, farmers, contractors, and several distinct county and state planners.
As part of the site transformation, the former equestrian arena was transformed into a winery and event center, support buildings were modified to better serve the site’s needs, and infrastructure was simplified.
