Stanford Inn Resort is Offering Two Vegan Retreats in 2021

The Stanford Inn Resort,
is offering guests the opportunity to grow their lunch and eat it too with two
new vegan retreats – one this summer and another in the fall.

“Everything we serve at our resort is organic,
plant-based, and conscientiously prepared with respect for the land,” said Jeff
Stanford, owner of the resort. “We field so many questions, we felt a couple of
retreats would allow guests an authentic hands-on experience.” From cooking to
nutrition, effective habit-change to environmental and ethical issues, guests
will learn everything they need to know to be a happier, healthier person. The
luxury eco-property has its own USDA Organic certified farm that provides
produce for the Resort’s award-winning plant-based Ravens Restaurant.

The vegan retreats offer guests of the Stanford
Inn Resort a chance to learn how to practically and logistically be vegan, and
to show how simple it can be with regard to nutrition and cooking. There seems
to be a feeling that transitioning to a vegan lifestyle is difficult. Stanford
Inn Resort takes the guess work out of the process, and clears the confusion.
