It is no secret that a community with a dedication to food grown at its finest, creates something very special. The farm-to-table movement has become increasingly popular over the last decade, giving Yreka the opportunity to show off a fleet of experienced growers, producers and artisans.
Long time experts and young, energetic growers are putting Yreka on the map with food enthusiasts who are interested in the practice of organically grown meats, fruits and vegetables.
“Right now people are interested in the story of our region’s farmers and ranchers,” explains the Yreka Chamber of Commerce. “Many producers are opening their doors to farm tours showcasing wildlife habitat and sustainable growing strategies.”
In 2014, the Siskiyou Economic Development Council launched the Shasta Cascade Farm Finder, a website celebrating Northern California’s agricultural lifestyle.
The interactive website provides an introduction to the growers, producers, and artisans putting Northstate on the map. “Visitors to the site can use the map to search for local food resources, and producers now have a centralized on-line community,” said SEDC Executive Director Tonya Dowse.
Purchasing from local farmers and herders puts money back into local economies and supports the livelihood of small, local operators so that they can continue to produce fresh, delicious, local foods.
Visit farms, wineries and over 80 local producers near Yreka, CA. The interactive farm finder map allows visitors to search local food resources and arrange farm and ranch visits.
“Supporting the local economy, helping promote economic growth — that benefits everyone,” says the Yreka Chamber. “If we eat locally, we are helping our own economy and supporting our unique region. We invite you to celebrate and enjoy the bounty of Yreka.”
