Ever driven the I-5? It’s that stretch of interstate highway cutting through California and into the Pacific Northwest—winding along the southern coastline and through the central valley, up past the state capitol and into the Shasta National Forest. If one travels this road, they’ll view California for what it truly is: diverse, boundless, and beautiful. Looking out the window as the roughly 1,300 miles fly by, one can’t help but imagine what would life would be like to own some small acreage in this state. If you have traveled through central California, along its sandy and breathtaking coastline, or through its mountains and foothills, you get it: California land is something special. Therefore buying your own slice of California land might not be such a crazy idea after all.
The wildlands of Northern California are most certainly worth taking a closer look at. North of Redding lies Shasta National Forest and the jaw-dropping landscapes of the Santiam pass. Rainfall in this region is consistent in the winter and spring which invigorates the soil and brings about a hearty agricultural yield in summer. There is a healthy amount of nitrogen and calcium in the dirt here, so gardeners fear not! You and your crops are sure to be happy with the results.
