Located 50 miles East of downtown Sacramento and two miles South of the California gold discovery site in Coloma, Wakamatsu Farm is 272 picturesque acres of oak woodlands, pastures, streams, and ponds. In 1869, the first Japanese settlers in North America arrived at Wakamatsu Farm to establish their tea and silk colony, making the site the first Japanese Colony in America. American River Conservancy now owns the landmark Farm where the world is invited to share its abundant historical, cultural, natural, and agricultural resources during scheduled events, tours, and private bookings.
Wakamatsu Farm is a destination farm with a unique world history. Along with public events and docent-led tours, visitors enjoy school field trips, volunteer programs, the “giving garden,” native plant nursery, wheelchair-accessible lake loop trail, and much more. As a working farm with tenant farmers and 110 acres of crops and farm animals, this heritage site is not a public park. The Farm is private property, so the public is widely welcome only during scheduled events and tours found at ARConservancy.org/events. Private tours and events are arranged by contacting American River Conservancy at wakamatsu@ARConservancy.org 530-621-1224.
We hope to see you soon at Wakamatsu Farm!
