Move Over Medicinals

In California, a dozen Edible magazines serve the Golden State, each singularly focused on the local, agrarian stories that shape our daily lives.

U-Pick Pomegranates

With a singleton and two sets of twins, life on a cul de sac in Orland felt claustrophobic.  The simple country life beckoned and the Wunsch family made the brave decision to follow their dream of raising their five children on the Corning country side, instilling in them the honest … Read More

Strawhouse Grows Up

Seventeen years ago, when Don and Julia Ellis set out to create an agro-tourism destination on the Trinity River, they never imagined tossing pizzas and roasting coffee in a house made of straw. Now Don, head pizza chef and chief roaster, wouldn’t want it any other way. The Strawhouse Café … Read More
