As a series of storms are crossing over California, they bring snow to the Sierra Nevada mountains. Chains may be required to go into the higher elevations of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. For information about the currant conditions, go HERE.

Dinner at Seven Sycamores Ranch

CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a great way to get fresh fruits and vegetables, often organic crops from local farmers, delivered right to your front door.  Our neighborhood is served by Family Farm Fresh offered by McKellar Farms at the Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch in Ivanhoe, California.  Find great recipes and keep up with the latest information at the Family Farm Fresh blog.
