On a weekend getaway to the Santa Cruz Mountains, we stumbled upon this homesteader's paradise and it's the sort of place that makes us consider moving to the area permanently. If you visit, give yourself plenty of time to meander Mountain Feed & Farm Supply's eclectic and colorful maze of buildings, pathways, and gardens. By the time you leave, you'll be armed with the inspiration and tools for such worthy pursuits as canning, beekeeping, beer brewing, and sausage and cheese making.
