The song "On the Road Again" could have been written for George Reading. As the host of California Heartland, he hits the road traveling all over the Golden State.

For example, on a day trip, George visited a number of farm trails throughout Santa Cruz and Santa Clara Counties. The first stop was Gizdich Ranch. Among the oldest in the valley, Gizdich Ranch is just one of more than 50 stops on the "Country Crossroads" farm tour. This farm tour provides a map that takes you from picnic stops to "u-pick" strawberry fields and berry patches. As you can imagine, you can easily eat your way from farm to farm.

George's next stop was the Sierra Azul Nursery and Gardens. Here they grow all sorts of plants that thrive in this Mediterranean climate. The demonstration gardens are vibrant with color.

After two stops, by mid-afternoon George was ready to hit the Corralitos Sausage Company. It's a genuine old-fashioned smokehouse. They make more than 30 types of sausage, smoked meats and fish. Most of the ingredients are homegrown in California.

For more information on the Country Crossroads farm trail call the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau at (831) 724-1356.
