By on Sun, September 4, 2011

The next meeting of the Half Moon Bay Historical Association features a presentation by Farmer John Muller. A longtime Coastside resident, Farmer John will present a history of Coastal agriculture from 1950 to the present.

Farmer John has experienced the evolution of farming, and the survival and demise of various industries. He has a unique perspective on how we arrived to where we are today. He will discuss with us his experiences of the dairy farms on Highway 92, farming in La Honda and San Gregorio, as well as the history of how the oil wells in the 1950’s affected agriculture here.

If anyone can give us a vivid picture of the last 50 years of farming in our community, it’s Farmer John. Mark your calendars, and plan to attend!

The meeting will be Wednesday, September 7, at The Coastside Art Gallery, 330 Main St, in Half Moon Bay. Doors open 5:30. Finger snacks and Beverages. Details: 726-4468
