Set in beautiful oak woodlands, meadows and a year-round creek, the ranch is a  perfect location to gather with friends and family. Black Oak Ranch is home to The Hog Farm, one of the oldest, continuously running communes in the United States. The Hog Farm has a long history of producing and participating in iconic music festivals and events, most notably the original Woodstock Music Festival in 1969. In more recent years, The Hog Farm co-produced Electric on the Eel and The Pignic and hosted Earthdance, The Kate Wolf Music  Festival and Enchanted Forest Gathering. 

The String Cheese Incident is one of the most popular acts on the rock-oriented jam band circuit.
