Views in Big Bear, CA

Bear Valley Farm

Share

I grew up in rural Idaho where agriculture was the major staple of our little town. A town where it was normal to see someone riding their horse down the middle of the street, or tie it to the post out front. I do miss living on a farm. There’s nothing like it. Listening to the sprinklers on the crops, the frogs at night, a million stars and lots of hard work! You can get a glimpse of farm life at Bear Valley Farms. Bear Valley Farms and Equestrian Center
