Thank you for reading our page – You have found Twin Springs Homestead in Placerville, Ca.

We are located in California Gold Country, in the foothills of the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains. My goal with this blog is to connect with others as we re-establish a bond with our food,  the soil and the rhythms of each season.

Our homestead is 12 acres of oak woodland, with 2 springs – one year round and one seasonal.  We raise heritage hogs for  pastured pork, a flock of laying hens for eggs-n-bacon, and various other farm critters – barn cats and porch dogs, too.  We have more than 50 fruit trees and a 2400 square foot garden.  With all that going on there are potential stories to share daily!
