Sierra Valley Art & Ag Trail

Sierra Valley Art & Ag Trail

The artist and agriculture communities of Sierra Valley are inviting the public to spend an autumn day, September 28, 2019, in Plumas and Sierra Counties, enjoying the history, culture and bounty of one of its treasures, Sierra Valley. Visitors will travel the Sierra Valley Art + Ag Trail, with great views of Sierra Valley Barn Quilts and opportunities to visit market farms, working ranches, and other historic buildings, and to sample the wares of artists of many media – wood, paint, glass, ceramic, metal, fiber and more. The event offers a window into the past, when Sierra Valley was home to a large number of family-run dairy farms that supplied milk, cream and butter to the miners in Virginia City. Guests will have a rare opportunity to visit privately owned 100+ year-old dairy barns, many built with hand-hewn timbers and wooden pegs, still serving today’s working ranches. Inside and around the barns, talented local artists will be showing and selling their wares. Visitors will be offered opportunities to tour some of the ranches and learn from producers about historic and present-day agricultural operations. The Sierra Valley Art & Ag Trail event also offers children’s activities, artist demonstrations, inspired education about the sources of our food, and a raffle, featuring artwork from many of our participating artists. For a $20 donation, pick up a keepsake passport for collecting stamps of local cattle brand insignia, artist’s marks and more along the Trail. Stick around for the prize drawing and dinner put on by the Sierra Valley Grange, Cattlewomen and Cattlemen’s Associations.
