Free Map Listing Direct Sell Farms Annual Edition
The annual edition of the Country Crossroads Map, the FREE publication that lists farms in the Central Coast area that sell directly to the public, is now available. The guide shows the public where to pick Olallieberries, taste wine, and select delicious smoked sausages.
On the website you can find the location and description of direct sell farms and the area’s farmers’ markets in Santa Cruz County and the Central Coast area. The FREE publication is produced annually by the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau. Nita Gizdich, County Crossroads President stated, “The public has a unique opportunity to purchase over 100 different commodities directly from all of our direct-sell farms. It makes for a very enjoyable family outing.”
The map can be obtained by sending a business size (#10) self-addressed, stamped envelope to the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau, 141 Monte Vista Avenue, Watsonville, CA 95076. You may pick one up at the above location between 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Just ask for a Country Crossroads map.
