Central Coast Living in 2018 took us everywhere; from our beautiful coastal beaches to farms of the inland valleys. As the year comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the top six Central Coast Living stories our viewers loved most on social media.
#6: Apple Farm Christmas Décor – San Luis Obispo
Locals were happy to get into the holiday spirit with Apple Farm’s elaborate decorations that went up in early November.
“We don’t skip a single corner around this property,” said Apple Farm display designer Chelsea Conner. “We deck the halls from top to bottom.”
#5: Pozo Saloon Reopens – Pozo
We visited the iconic Pozo Saloon ahead of its grand reopening in May to learn about its history and the plans going forward.
“I knew the Pozo Saloon was important; I didn’t understand how important it was until I was spending almost every day here for the last three and half months,” said new owner Dean Marchant. “It is important to these people around here.”
#4: Quicksilver Miniature Horse Ranch – Solvang
We checked out the Quicksilver Miniature Horse Ranch in Solvang where you can pet the little horses for free. The ranch remains up for sale, so make sure you see the cute mini horses in the New Year before any potential changes.
#3: Giant Brookshire Farms Corn Maze – Los Osos
Many locals visited a pumpkin patch in Los Osos last October after seeing our story about Brookshire Farms’ impressive 7.5 acre corn maze.
“This is something that my wife and I really have enjoyed to put on and be able to help out making families come together,” said Shawn Callaway of Brookshire Farms.
#2: Local Meat Delivered to Doorstep – Central Coast Meats
We toured a young farmer’s ranches in Los Osos and rural Santa Margarita where he’s taking the farm-to-table concept to a whole new level. Central Coast Meats delivers boxes of locally-raised, organic meat right to your doorstep.
“We want to allow our customers to see the entire life cycle from the time the animal is born, to the time its harvested and then butchered and shipped and delivered to your doorstep,” said Central Coast Meats owner Kyle Clement.
#1: Covell Clydesdale Ranch – Cambria
The top Central Coast Living story of 2018 featured Tara Covell and her Clydesdale ranch in Cambria. The one-ton horses galloped right into so many of our viewers hearts, prompting hundreds of visits to Covell’s sprawling property to see the majestic giants.
“It’s just a labor of love. We love the Clydesdales,” said Covell. “We have shown historically in the past and now we do it as a family business.”
