Vacation Rentals in Northern California Near Agritourism Operations

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Agritourism is an industry that is growing throughout the nation as farm operators are beginning to offer various activities to the public in order to channel new sources of revenue. Some farms let you pick your own produce, others set up farm stands that allow you to purchase directly from the producer. Many farms are now offering tours and some even offer farm stays. Events centered around agriculture such as festivals, workshops and classes, are increasing in popularity as well. The general population now has many unique opportunities available to them to witness the behind the scenes of food production and given the growth of this industry it is obvious that people are really enjoying having these opportunities.

RC-stats-e1428350918320Agriculture’s roots are deep in Humboldt County (no pun intended). According to the Humboldt Farm Buerea “approximately a third of the total land area in the County is directed to some type of agricultural use”. Given this fact It is no wonder why Humboldt County is a leader in the Agritourism movement. There are over 1,000 farms located throughout both Humboldt County and its neighbor to the North, Del Norte County! You can find nearly anything being raised in this region. There is tons of vegetable and fruit production, dairy and cattle farms galore, and even aquaculture operations. Floral and timber are other very large industries in the region. Oh and don’t forget the fantastic wineries that exist here. The climate, topography, and abundant waterways here seem to create the perfect place for this wide variety of agricultural based industries. Given this is the case for tourism in Humboldt County as well, combining the two (agritourism) seems pretty much like a no brainer for Humboldt County farmers.

9__MAR4051Many farm operations in the Redwood Coast region allow ways for the public to become involved. As you probably guessed, it is extremely easy to find agricultural happenings here. You can simply stop in at the year-round farmer’s market, or perhaps attend workshops or classes related to agricultural practices which can be found regular within the community. Or better yet visit one of the many Humboldt County farm stands or U-Pick operations. In addition there are several community gardens, CSAs, educational farms that allow visitors. Many restaurants and grocers serve locally produced foods as well. There are also great local area festivals that celebrate the rich agriculture influence of the region including the popular Arcata Oyster Festival and the Fortuna Apple Harvest.  There are practically countless ways to become better acquainted with the products and the producers of the Humboldt County area.

The following is a list of some of my personal favorite places for fun, educational agriculture related experiences in Humboldt County.You definitely do not want to miss out on these if you are and “agritourist” visiting the region:

Humboldt Bay Oyster Tours – Oyster Farm tours on Humboldt Bay

Wolfsen Blueberry Farm – A U-Pick small, family-owned organic Blueberry farm located in McKinleyville, CA. Open July 4 – Labor Day

Bayside Park Farm (Formerly Arcata Educational Farm) – A three-acre vegetable farm located in the City of Arcata’s Bayside Park, Tours available

Deep Seeded Farm – U-Pick flowers and berries, tours, picnics, recipes and more

Redwood Roots Farm – Several Educational Programs and Volunteer Opportunities as well as a great farm stand on this beautiful and diverse CSA and market garden

Winnett Vinyards – Family-owned and certified organic winery in sunny Willow Creek. Hand crafted estate-bottled wines. Tastings and Tours Available

The University of California’s Small Farm Centres defines Agritourism as ”the act of visiting a working farm or any agricultural, horticultural or agribusiness operation for the purpose of enjoyment, education or personal involvement in the activities of the farm or operation”. Humboldt County is really one of the best places to partake in this form of travel and there are plenty of vacation rentals in this part of Northern California that are within close proximity to agritourism ops. With such an extensive and diverse amount of agriculture here one can surely become educated and involved in these operations and most importantly enjoy a farm experience here on you next vacation to the Redwood Coast.

Soar Through the Forest Canopy on your Redwood Coast Vacation – Northern California’s Premier Nature Attraction, The Trees of Mystery

imagesYou are driving along Hwy 101 and on the roadside you suddenly come across a 49-foot-tall statue of Paul Bunyan and his 35-foot-tall blue ox, Babe. What is this, you may ask. Well it is the Trees of Mystery of course. For over 65 years, the Trees of Mystery have been welcoming visitor along this stretch highway. Whether you are vacationing in the area or just passing on by, this is a place you will want to pull over for.

Located in the heart of the Redwood Coast, near Redwood National and State Parks, Trees of Mystery is California’s considered to be the premier nature attraction in Northern California. After being greeted by Mr. Bunyan you stroll along a leisurely eighth of a mile long groomed interpretive trail through giant redwoods. The trail leads to an onsite museum, which boasts an extensive private collection of Native American art, crafts and tools, actually one of the largest collections of it kind.

sky-trail-06.jpgPerhaps the highlight of the entire attraction though is the SkyTrail gondola ride, which takes visitors on an unforgettable ride through the forest canopy. The Swiss-made cable cars travel at 11 mph along the tops of redwood trees that measure 100s of feet in height! The SkyTrail leads to and observation deck offers an awesome view of the surrounding forest as well as a glimpse of the Pacific Ocean.

Although the trees themselves are indisputably the stars of Trees of Mystery, there is a lot more to this roadside attraction than can be seen by just passing by. Stop in on your next trip and don’t forget to wave hello to Paul and Babe.

Holly Yashi Jewelry Design Studio: Honoring the Craft of Jewelry Making in Arcata, California

HYStore_Studio_viewroomEver wondered what the story was behind a particular piece of jewelry you own? Perhaps you want to know where it was made and who actually made it. Often, the modern day jewelry industry provides little to no way to trace the origins of commercially produced adornments. Cheap jewelry imported from who knows where has definitely become the industry norm over the year. However, there is one unique Northern California jewelry design company that still values the handcrafting process of unique pieces. The company even offers tours of their state-of-the-art design studio so that customers have the chance to connect directly with the artisans themselves and learn more about the creative processes behind jewelry design.

Holly Yashi, a jewelry design company founded in Arcata CA in 1981, is known worldwide for their innovative styles and designs, particularly their work with Niobium, a metal that when bathed in electronically-charged water takes on radiant hues. Holly Yashi jewelry is sold at over 1,100 upscale vendors throughout the country. Though the company has grown exponentially over the years, the owners have remained true to their belief that every piece that they produce should be hand crafted and of utmost quality. They have also maintained that a close personal connection to each of their artisans is key.

HYStore_Studio_dippingVisitors to the Holly Yashi studio in Arcata CA have the chance to tour the facilities, meet designer, and see jewelry being made for them selves. The tour provides a glimpse at what goes into Holly Yashi’s unique designs. In addition to seeing the creative process unfold, visitors have access to an on site gift store featuring the only full collection of Holly Yashi’s latest styles, as well as other goodies. Tours are offered weekday at 11am free of charge but if you don’t have time for the full tour just walk on in to the studio viewing room any weekday from 10am-5pm.

A Celebration of the Holy Ghost: The Portuguese Spirit of Humboldt County

W1g1VBKCHDOQbOMdThe smell of sweet bread and linguica sausage will soon fill the air at the various Portuguese Holy Ghost Celebrations being held throughout the state of California during the upcoming summer months. Seeing as California has the largest Portuguese Azorean population in the entire U.S. it is no wonder why the Holy Ghost is so widely celebrated in the Golden State. From May into June in Northern California in particular, it is easy to find several Holy Ghost celebrations taking place. All over the San Francisco Bay Area and as far north as the small village of Ferndale, CA. Portuguese festivities will be in full effect this time of year.

CameraZOOM-20120527120656083Traditionally a religious gathering of which all are welcome to attend, the Holy Ghost Celebration is seen as somewhat of a gift to the community in which it takes place. In the spirit of the revered 14th century Queen Isabel of Portugal who was an advocate for the poor and always sought ways to help to feed citizens in need, any Holy Ghost festivities that you attend will feature an elaborate feast, as well as parades, dancing, and of course, Sunday mass. Over the 100+ years that this celebration has been taking place in California it has really morphed into a celebration that honors the Portuguese Azorean culture, food, music, dance and tradition that was brought here when the Portuguese began to immigrate to California in the late 1800s’. These festivals provide a great way to get out to meet your local Portuguese community members and truly get a taste of their unique traditions.

images2015 will mark the 91st annual Holy Ghost Celebration for the Victorian Village of Ferndale located to the far north of the state in Humboldt County. This small rural farming community became a huge agricultural center during the 1800’s and many hard-working Portuguese immigrants migrated to the region to work on dairy ranches and later in the areas prominent timber industry. The festival will take place May 23rd & 24th at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds & the Portuguese Hall in the town of Ferndale. If you live in the area or happen to be visiting during this time make sure to come out to experience the festival and learn more about this important group of people who make up the rich history of the Redwood Coast. Rosary, bean & linguica dinner will be held Saturday at 6:30 pm. Parade, mass, and noon dinner are being held on Sunday.

 view-from-the-cemeteryFor those who have never been, Ferndale is a quaint town in which you literally feel as though you have stepped back in time. The Victorian architecture of the town is well-preserved and definitely a feature that this village is known for. There are several nice vacation rentals in Ferndale to check out if you are looking to explore the area including Cream City Cottage in Victorian Village of Ferndale, 2 Bdrm & Studio as well as the Fernbridge House, a super cute bungalow just outside Victorian Village of Ferndale. Other things to do while in Ferndale could include catching a live show downtown at the Ferndale Repertory Theater, checking out the many interesting shops that line main street, or explore the various national and state parks of the Humboldt County region. As the Portuguese proverb says, “for each mouth, a different soup”… Humboldt County offers exactly that, something for everyone.

EXPLORING THE NORTH COAST PARKS WITH REDWOOD EDVENTURE QUESTS

images-1Looking for a fun, family friendly way to explore some of the most beautiful places here on the North Coast?  As a parent I am personally always looking for new and exciting ways to get my little one engaged with the natural environment and also ways to really get her excited about learning more about nature. I feel very lucky to live on the North Coast, an area with so much opportunity to connect with nature. This is also an area where many local organizations create amazing programs that are specifically geared to get our youth outdoors and exploring the natural world around us.

The Humboldt County Office of Education recently created an exciting and interactive way for us families with children to to get outside and explore. Taking place at many of our many amazing local area parks here on the North Coast, Redwood Edventure Quests are basically scavenger hunts that are lead by interpretive clues. Participants can pick up brochures containing the clues at each of the participating park’s visitor centers. These clues lead participants through the park to where they eventually find the “final phrase” which can be brought back to the visitor center in order to receive an actual Redwood Edventures Patch. And let me tell you, having been a girl scout myself I personally know the significance of a patch and it is indeed great… but we all know the experience that comes with it is usually much greater. Redwood Edventure Quests offered exactly that, theexperience of the redwood coast.

These quests are easy, fun, and educational for all ages. They usually last about 30 minutes to an hour. The Quests take place at 17 different park locations throughout the North Coast ranging from as far south as Richardson Grove, all the way to Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park in the north. Participants, both children and parents alike, get the chance to really observe the natural environment here and get to know about the flora and fauna, geology, animals, and natural history of the area.

For a map of participating park locations or for more information visit:

www.redwood-edventures.org.

If you are planning a Redwood Park vacation or a Humboldt County vacation in general and would like to take part in the Edventure there are several vacation rentals near participating parks. Available are several vacations rentals in Trinidad as well as Crescent City vacation homes located close to the northernmost Quest locations as well as others further to the south such as the vacation homes in Ferndale. There are many other Humboldt County vacation homes available throughout the entire North Coast region. Redwood Coast Vacation Rentals even offers a couple of spectacular vacation homes super close to Redwood National Park which is definitely an Edventure Quest location not to be missed.

1902712_837198076298561_8738776130016083144_n-1

That is right! This now nationally known race which began as a winter training run for Humboldt State Track and Field runners many years ago will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this coming January 2015. This 8 ¾ mile run actually begins about 2 miles north of the town of Trinidad CA, which for those of you that are unfamiliar, is a quaint seaside village located directly off of Highway 101 about 285 miles north of San Francisco. This former whaling village sits poised atop a rugged stretch of the Northern California coastline and is recognized for its breathtaking scenery, its many pristine beaches and of course the majestic redwood forest that surrounds it.

396220_10151244055405182_1287427279_nThe setting definitely makes for a spectacular run location but the Trinidad to Clam Beach run also boasts a very unique course as well. The varying topography of this race includes paved road with zero incline, slight hills, packed wet sands, and even a river crossing at the mouth of the Little River at Moonstone Beach where runners ditch their shoes and go barefoot during the remainder of the race. After the river crossing, runners continues along Clam Beach to the finish line at Strawberry Creek where they are greeted by a huge bon fire which warms their toes just perfectly after having drudged through the chilly river water.

All of this fun is sponsored by the Greater Trinidad Chamber of Commerce and profits from the run support the Chamber’s scholarship fund. Registration postmarked or paid online on or before Dec. 31 2014 is $25. Registration made Jan. 1-Jan.28, 2015 is $30 and the weekend of the run (Jan. 30-31, 2015) registration goes up to $35. And don’t worry if 8 ¾ miles seems like a bit too much for you, a 3 mile and 5 ¾ mile run have been added. The course starting and ending points vary slightly for the shorter runs but allow runners of differing levels a chance to participate in this great event. The start time as well as the date of the run is determined by the height of the tide but this year the race is being schedule for Saturday January 31st. For more detailed information visit www.TrinidadToClamBeach.com
