Get Away From It All On This Luxury Ranch Retreat


The only thing better than indulging in “all things delicious” with acclaimed chef James Porter is doing so at Terra Farm + Manor.

Located 45 minutes north of Prescott, this luxury Arizona retreat sits on more than 100,000 acres of historic ranchland where Porter and his wife, Wendy, maintain an orchard, a vineyard and 9 acres of vegetables, flowers and herbs. Guests can reserve a weekend stay in fall or spring or book a private escape in the winter to enjoy what Porter describes as a “modernized homestead experience.”

The eight-room manor and three-room guest house emphasize Arizona’s diverse offerings with details like kitchen tiles handmade in Tucson and custom-designed plates crafted by Arizona potter Christiane Barbato. Other notable features include napkins designed and woven in Arizona from local Pima cotton and chandeliers forged by a resident ironsmith.

To all this, Porter adds a global touch: Much of the livestock hails from elsewhere, including Wagyu cattle and chickens from France.
