Someone online told me to look in the Sacramento Valley area from Sac. to Redding. Any specific areas anyone knows of?
20 ++ acres
No snow or frost
Organic gardening
Grow citrus
Secluded but near to a big town
In a small town is OK
Good schools near by
Not in hunting area

Thanks for any help.

I am sure there are a lot of areas from sac to redding, it just depends on where you want to be. Just check realtor.com, You can search for homes and properties with acreage in "advanced search".

You can use maps.google.com to find towns.

For those requirements you would want to be near the thermal belts on the edge of the valley. The valley floor gets at least a light frost rather frequently. Once in awhile, big frosts happen (like last year).

Some frost is hard to avoid. Most citrus does ok with light frosts. The best citrus for taking a frost and doing well in the more marginal soils on the slope edge of the valley seems to be Mandarins. We grow some real tasty backyard Mandarins around here (far east suburbs of Sacramento).

I think the west side of the valley would be better for you, but that's just my uneducated opinion. Take a look from near Winters (west of Sac) to around Highway 20. Get back in those edge areas close to the Coastal Range mountains. Quite pretty on that side too. Might be something near the Capay Valley as well.

There is a nice valley that starts just north of Wilbur Springs off Highway 20. Just drive north and you'll see it. That looks like some real nice horse areas. Might be too isolated for you though. There is a fire house (perhaps rescue/ambulance) near the junction of Highway 16 (north end of Capay Valley) and Highway 20. Nice people. They'll point you in the right direction.

Give you a start anyway. Good luck.

Here's a link to the Capay Valley. They are into organic foods and small farms. If the link doesn't hold, just do a search: Capay Valley

I used to show and raise quarter horses. Now I'm showing great danes.
There are lots of horse properties/AG around Butte Valley, Roseville, Dixon, Lincoln, Loomis, Auburn, Newcastle, Oroville, Yuba City, Woodland, Marysville, Lodi and Orland.

I currently live on 5 acres in Penryn which is actually fairly close to Sac. There is plenty of horse property in this area(loomis, penryn, newcastle, Auburn) but im sure it is way more expensive than farther north.

I've heard that Winters is a good town for horse property and it is about a 20 minute drive into Davis and also fairly close to Vacaville. A friend just purchased a horse ranch in Loma Rica and loves it there.

The land in Placer and El Dorado Counties is way over priced right now, so you probably don't want to look close to Loomis or Lincoln.

Thank you all for your help. At least I have some towns to start looking at. We don't know No. CA at all but we think it's so green and beautiful. We really aren't horse people (we love them though) but we need horse property in order to have all our animals.
Hey Cadrmndanes, we have had two danes that we absolutly loved. One a rescue and one we got as a puppy. It's so sad how short their lives are. We have a deaf American Bull Dog rescue now.
