I purchased this 40 acres in 2006 and have been gardening, farming and ranching here ever since. When I got here there was absolutely no infrastructure, just a heavily overgrown brush forest lacking stewardship for 70 years. 10+ years later we have turned this place into a California topia. This is not just a farm, but also an educational center and research institute.

This region is the most gold rich in the U.S. From 1848 onward hundreds of thousands of miners flocked here. The canal that runs through this land was constructed in 1862 and has been in continuous operation ever since. You might not suspect it now, but in 1870, there was not one tree left in sight of this location, they had all been used for fuel and building materials in the preceding 30 years. The forest that has regrown is no more than 100 years old.

The Farm is rich with history and ecology. Come enjoy a stay here!
