Sacred Paths Farm

Sacred Paths Farm is an organic and bio-dynamic practicing farm of vegetables, culinary, and medicinal herbs, flowers and Christmas trees. A 3rd generation, family owned and operated business, Sacred Paths Farm is located in the foothills of El Dorado County. There is a large vegetable garden that serves to provide fresh produce for local farmers markets & a CSA program. Walk the beautiful gardens of flowers & medicinal herbs to learn about nature's apothecary. The gardens are surrounded by 10 pristine acres of mountain redwoods, cedars, firs & sweet gum trees.

The farm is open daily and includes a beautiful picnic area with walking trails for self-guided tours. It also has a road side stand of fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, and herbal products open Thursday through Sunday.

Sacred Paths Farm is a member of the Apple Hill Association. During Apple Hill season, we have many varieties of organic apples for sale including various apple desserts and treats made with all fresh and organic ingredients, right on the farm. Come visit a true back to nature and homesteading farm. The kids will enjoy watching the goats and chickens along with playing in the redwood grove or old fashioned hay stack. It's a great place to relax and enjoy nature.

Every year the farm holds its annual Green Harvest Festival in October with live music, organic food, green and local vendors, local performers & artists, and a kids' activity area. The family festival is free and open to the public.

During Christmas season, we provide organically grown choose-and-cut Christmas trees. Bring the family for a tradition to remember; warm outdoor fires, hot chocolate & cider, fresh pastries and pies. We make memories possible.

Sacred Paths Farm could not be in better hands. I cannot think of anyone I would trust more to grow my food.

Matt Abbott, 8/11/2010

Sacred Paths Farm is a remarkable organic farm. Matt and Stephanie are passionately conscientious about what they grow, how they grow it, and those who partake in their harvest.

This is our 3rd year participating in the Sacred Paths Farm CSA program, and we couldn't be happier. We also enjoy their annual Green Harvest Festival! Each year Matt and Stephanie are working harder to educate the local community on the many benefits of locally grown organic produce. Thank you!
