The site of the first Japanese colony in America in 1869, the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm Colony is on the National Register of Historic Places and California Registered Historical Landmark #815.  This 272-acre property features Okei-san’s historic gravesite, an 1850’s farmhouse, and a turn-of-the-century barn. Rich in cultural and natural resources, the rolling landscape boasts productive farming soils, wildlife habitat, oak woodlands, ponds, and a wheelchair-accessible trail.  Onsite is ARC’s native plant nursery, orchard, and giving garden. Wakamatsu Farm is open to the public only during scheduled events and tours, such as this public tour. 

Led by trained docents, the approximate 1.5-mile hike is mainly outdoors, on dirt trails, over generally flat terrain, including stairs, and is not recommended for mobility-challenged visitors. Mature children 10+ are welcome.  Wakamatsu Open Farm Days are suitable for all visitors, including families and mobility-challenged visitors.  Steady rain or temperatures over 100 degrees will cancel.  Check ARC’s event calendar for updates. 

Please call 530-621-1224 to RSVP or to schedule private tours.

Cost: $10/Adults, $5/Children 10-17 years old. 

All proceeds directly benefit Wakamatsu Farm.  Find out more at: www.ARConservancy.org/wakamatsu
