Land For Sale in California

These idyllic images of sunny seasides and city landscapes exist, so it's easy to forget that there's a whole state full of beautiful scenery outside these urban and coastal regions. From arid, to tropical, to dense forests, California contains all of it! There is land for sale in California that can offer you any of these climates.

California Farming History

Much of the Bay Area was once just fruit and almond trees for as far as the eye could see, and a long history of cattle ranches and timber farms exist throughout different regions of the state. The most common types of farms in both northern and southern California are listed below:

  • Fruit Orchards
  • Vineyards
  • Timber Farms
  • Cattle Ranches
  • Grazing Land
  • Agricultural Farms
California Acreage Today

Timber Farms: Much of the recreational land for sale in California sold today was once timber farmland that still supports a large wildlife population, with creeks and rivers, and often lake frontage on the property. These are wonderful places for the hunting and gaming enthusiast who wants to spend time outside among the beautiful redwoods and evergreen forests near Mt. Shasta and the mountains of northern California near the Oregon border. There are also recreational and timber farms in Humboldt and Mendocino County.

Agricultural Farmland: Where there once stood miles and miles of fruit trees along the rolling hills of northern and central California, now stand cement buildings and paved city centers, leaving little trace of the bountiful acres of fruit and nut tree orchards that once reached as far as the eye could see. Standing between Vacaville and the mountain passes leading out of California, The Nut Tree sign is all that is left of the once-remote truck stop along the highway, surrounded by a lonely sea of agricultural farmland spreading south and east that used to be the northern tip of California’s fruit orchards lining Hwy 80 and I-5.

The Nut Tree sign and restaurant, surrounded by outlet malls and chain restaurants that fill the Vacaville area today, now stand as a lone reminder of what used to be the last outpost of civilization before miles of open road. There are still fruit farms and orchards throughout the central valley and southern California, though at a fraction of the size they once were. Still, they often show up on listings for land for sale in California and are a beautiful place to live.

Grazing/Pastureland: While there are still plenty of agricultural, organic, and local produce farms in California, much of the farm and ranch land is used for livestock grazing today. Some of the grazing farmland has also given way to solar wind farms, with gently rolling hillsides across the state covered with dozens of tall, white windmills beside the highways.

Recreational Land: A lot of the large acreage land for sale that was once farmland or ranches has been repurposed for recreational use. Timber farms, lakefront properties, and river land in Humboldt and other neighboring communities near the Russian River are often used for recreational purposes. There are also many vineyards and wineries throughout the state, especially in the Sonoma and Napa Valley that sit just to the north of San Francisco.

Although the recent wildfires devastated the area, many of the vineyards survived and have remained open. It is not uncommon to see complete vineyards listed for sale. Although wineries and vineyards aren't purely recreational, wine tours and wine tasting are viewed as a recreational activity by many wine enthusiasts around California and throughout the world. There's a tradition of small, local wineries thriving in these northern communities where wine tasting tours are held nearly every day. Here are some of the other popular uses for recreational farm land that are frequently found on the market:

  • Spas/Resorts
  • Natural Mineral Springs
  • Organic Produce Farms
