Here is the newest summary of our last farm visited during Art Harvest program!
On Saturday, June 8th Township Valley Farms in Browns Valley. Our hosts, Kim & Martin Pedley gave us a tour of their property surrounded by golden rolling hills freckled by oak trees so artist could choose what agriculture they wanted to capture.
A large pond complete with remnants of trees expertly carved out by a now, deceived beaver. Their “hair” sheep that were being protected by a giant Pyrenees dog. A beautiful flock of hens, one of which laid an egg for us while watching! All of their hens have been held every day of their life and fed only organic grains; you know those eggs taste yummy.
Township Valley Farms delivers truly farm fresh eggs which by the way can be purchased at New Earth Market in Yuba City. Fields of various hops and basils made an awesome back drop for photo shoots and sketches. Look for Township Valley Farm’s Pesto sauce and fresh basil in a few months at New Earth Market. Artist was treated with homemade lemonade (made with lemons grown on the farm) after their artistic adventures in the fields.
Next trip is on July 13th! Contact D. Ellen Day at 674-5873 to sign up!

There is anthology of Northern California writers in the works! If you are interested in finding out more, please read the announcement below.
My name is Dan O’Brien and I am looking for writers, specifically northern California writers for a regional anthology I am putting together. It is meant to highlight wonderful short fiction, poetry, essays, photography, and artwork from a particular area told by the people who live there, who breathe northern California.
I graduated from California State University, Chico, completing my graduate work there as well, and love the idea of highlighting the diverse voices north of Sacramento. I love the Sacramento valley, the mountains to the north and east, as well as the beautiful coast. In this way I can give back to a place that has given me so much.
I operate a literary and publishing consulting business and maintain a blog where I write about publishing, marketing, editing, independent authors, and sports. I have been the senior editor and marketing director of a national magazine, and I have published more than a dozen of my own novels and hundreds of articles.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
