Shasta Land Trust’s most recent Wildways event was genuinely a one-of-a-kind experience for all who attended. Imagine a breathtaking, panoramic view of Mt. Shasta Now envision this scene in the background next to an organic orchard sitting at a table with a mouthwatering farm to table meal. You can smell the ripe apricots from the adjacent trees and feel the warmth of the summer sun and refreshing mountain breeze on your cheeks. This is what we experience during our recent Wildways event at Belcampo’s Mini Meat Camp and Dinner.

Belcampo Farms is located just north of Mt. Shasta in the quaint town of Gazelle, CA. The farm practices regenerative farming techniques and puts forward an enormous amount of passion into everything they touch. They are certified Organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers and Certified Humane. We were astounded by their dedication to sustainable farming practices and devotion to creating a unique place for people to learn, experience and enjoy all aspects of the farm.

From the bed of a farm truck, our guests toured the free-range pigs (with recently born piglets), drove past the lush agricultural fields where organic chickens roamed free, learned all about hay production and even said hello to a few turkeys along the way. We were then brought back to the barn where we enjoyed an educational butchery demonstration by Eric Miller, where we learned how to spatchcock a chicken and break down a full slab of beef into individual New York steaks!

After the tour and educational lesson, our gracious hosts spoiled the group with a gourmet charcuterie and wine pairing. Here, we were dazzled with an incredible tasting of Belcampo artisan meats with wine pairings provided by our amazing local winery, Burnsini Vineyards.

As the sun began to set, guests were free to roam the nearby orchards and garden where they picked juicy peaches, apricots, berries, and apples. Meanwhile, the Asado Wagon raged with fire as farm fresh chicken and steak were being grilled up for the evening dinner!

After spending the day learning about what it takes for Belcampo to create their extraordinary cuisine and meats, it was time to taste the fruits of their labor. With the dinner table set under the basking beauty of Mt. Shasta, our hosts went above and beyond to create an incredible farm-to-table dinner to savor. Through conversation, joy, connections new and old, nourishment, and appreciation for the food enjoyed, it was a memorable day for all who attended.

Shasta Land Trust would like to thank our hosts at Belcmapo Farms for putting on such an incredible event for our Wildways series. They exceeded our expectations in providing an outstanding and educational day for our group. We would like to give a special thank you to the Law Offices of Campbell, Clark and Vienneau for hosting the day at Belcampo. Without their support, this event would not have been possible. We would also like to thank Burnsini Vineyards for providing their amazing wines.

Thank you to all who attended, this Wildways event will be one to remember for years to come. As always, all profits from these events go directly to the Shasta Land Trust so local conservation can continue to thrive for generations to come!

Today we enjoyed partnering with Shasta College's GIS students on developing an online mapping system that will allow the Shasta Land Trust to advance our annual monitoring program and mapping database.  The students got a chance to tour the Fenwood Ranch and use the Shasta Land Trust as their mock client in a project that is tied to their overall class and final capstone project.  Thank you to Dan Scollon, Devon Hedemark, and Tim Hill for working with the Shasta Land Trust on this beneficial project.
