Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: Realtor Life on a Farm in Wilton, California

Realtor Life on a Farm in Wilton, California

When I was 17 and still awake at 5 AM for some reason, a girlfriend and I decided to hitchhike "up north" to visit a farm. One of those things where you're still sitting around talking to each other as the sun is about to rise, wondering who else is awake at that time of the morning. The obvious answer to us was people who live on farms.

So we left Minneapolis by hitchiking to I-35 to head north. We decided not to pick a destination but to go wherever the person who picked us up was going. You know, the goofy kind of ideas a 17-year-old kid who thought she was clever would suggest. Maybe we were coming down on acid, after all, it was 1969; hard to recall. In any case, we ended up in Duluth and not a farm.

Hence, my knowledge of farm life is fairly limited. But, you can read more about farm life from JaCi in our personal blog today at this link: Do You Love Farm Life in Sacramento County?

Hello Elizabeth - I have never hitchhiked and my farm days have been rather limited.  My idea of Green Acres reminds me of Eva Gabor and penthouses. Why, oh why did this woman end up in Hooterville?  Hmm...maybe it was an acid trip.  After all, even though it wasn't the sixties that's the only understandable excuse for that situation to me.  Thankfully there are enough farm-loving folk to make such things possible.

Barbara Todaro Yup, that's pretty much what we've got in southern Sacramento County, mostly 2 to 5 acre lots with custom homes. My partner JaCi calls them ranchettes.

Michael Jacobs There are times I can relate to that fish-out-of-water, silliest of series, but I also liked Arnold the pig, wasn't that his name? Could have been the times, too. It was the 1960s.

Good afternoon Elizabeth. I worked in Duluth while going to school in Superior. Never hitch hiked in my life.

well I wouldn't have guessed there was enough land for farms where you live... but I guess mini horses don't take up too much room.

I grew up with my granddaddy having a farm. He raised donkeys (to protect the herds), hogs, chickens, horses, goats, beef cattle (but he also had some dairy cows as well) and sheep.

I bet I was just two years old when I started churing butter and helping shell peas.  I went through a period in life where I thought.... just WHY... when they sell all this stuff at the grocery store.  But now I'm older and wiser and I know it tastes better and I'm back to gardening and we're actually land hunting for some acreage.

I am not a farm girl, Elizabeth. My mother sent me to a farm for the summer when I was around 5 years of age. Hated it! I'm a city girl through and through and make no apologies for it. When we moved to Charlotte 21 years ago we had quite a few farms in the immediate metro area... little by little they have and are disappearing as developers buy out the land owners to build houses.
