You may not know a lot about Cherryvale Farms, so here's a little history. We're born out of an actual (if tiny) farm in the heart of Santa Cruz, California. To be more specific a (even more tiny) town called Soquel. Pronounced "so-kel" adjacent to Capitola-by-the-Sea, a famous local beach area. Soquel is a town of barely 1,000 people nestled within the larger county of Santa Cruz (about 50,000 people) set right on the Bay Area coastline, about an hour South of San Francisco.
Soquel is a young town by American standards, founded late in the 1860's, but home to a vibrant little community of organic farmers, surfers and beach-loving folks. And home to the Cherryvale Farms property for the past 15 years.
This past weekend Cherryvale Farms was lucky enough to participate in Soquel's 4th Annual "Taste of Soquel" event at the Congregational Church of Soquel, a little white steeple of a church located on Main Street. It's as picturesque as it sounds and just as quaint.
We loved sharing our baked samples with locals and those visiting Soquel for the special event. Check out our photos!
