I

am amazed at what I see as I drive around our county. I see new businesses dotting the landscape, beautiful homes being built and many visitor attractions, including the newest national park, Pinnacles National Park. Our Hollister and San Juan city parks are being updated and improved. San Benito County is enjoying a time of growth and renewed prosperity. Commerce is getting stronger and provides a positive climate for existing and new business to grow. Our business climate is the fabric of our county and the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce is committed to fostering that support. As businesses, city services and our population continue to grow, so must our chamber continue to keep pace with that growth. Careful guidance and direction is paramount in promoting a positive business climate, and I encourage all members to share your comments and to take full advantage of your membership. Get involved, become a chamber board member, serve on a committee or volunteer for an event. I am honored to be a part of this community and I look forward to what the future brings. I want to thank the current chamber board and staff who are the catalysts for making our organization great. I encourage all those who do business in the county to join us at the chamber as we unite to shape an even greater community, one with benefits for all who live, shop, own businesses, work and travel here.

hile Hollister, San Juan Bautista, Tres Pinos, Aromas, Paicines, and New Idria are separated by grassy valleys, acres of wildflowers, pasture, or rows and rows of salad crops, the communities are united in bringing strong businesses to San Benito County and an even stronger quality of life. Just like the diversity of the landscape, the businesses that shape San Benito County represent a wide variety of individual strengths and unique ideas. Many great businesses have been grown right in San Benito County to provide jobs for residents, stability for families, and a great quality of life for the community.

HOLLISTER San Benito County is growing and experiencing a rise in property values and an upswing in new construction. Hollister, the county seat, has been one of the fastest growing communities in California during the past decade but has maintained the quality of living that has made it attractive to people from across the country. With a current population in the city limits of 36,600, the city has a rapidly growing business community, and is actively working to attract new industry to the area. From local retailers and restaurants to various service providers, manufacturers, and agricultural companies, businesses in Hollister work together to grow and prosper. McKinnon Lumber Company has seen a lot of growth since opening its doors in 1910. Housed on a site that has had a lumber yard in existence since 1869, it’s a safe bet that the company has contributed in some way to many of the structures in the community today. John Barrett started working for the company in 1973, and bought McKinnon Lumber in 1989 from his uncle. “In a lot of ways it’s like small businesses are almost a thing of the past, but we have always been well supported by the community,” Barrett said. “They learn what we do, and who we are, and when they want personal service they know to come here.”

Hollister’s support of local businesses has also been great for Irma’s Fashions. Irma’s was opened in 1940 by Irma Bertuccio, and is located downtown on 5th Street. Bertuccio ran the business until she was 96 years old, and although Irma’s is now run by Karen Tonascia, the focus on customer service and giving back to the community remains the same. “We try to give back as much as possible,” Tonascia said. “We participate in a lot of fashion shows, which are usually fundraisers for local non-profits. That’s a really fun way to be involved in the community.” Known today for a line of jewelry from Brighton and different boutique brands, Irma’s has a loyal customer base and Tonascia has a number of shoppers who come from outside the area. “We have lots of new people coming in every day, but what really keeps us going are our regular customers.” “Our customers are like family. We know them, they know us and we know what they like,” Tonascia added. “I think the customer service tradition that Irma started and taking the time to truly listen is what sets us apart.” With a great business and employment climate, a number of larger companies have relocated to Hollister and have continued to grow and expand. One of those transplants is Teknova, which makes products

for the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. Partnering with large and small pharmaceutical, research and development and academic institutions nationally, the company has over 5,000 different products – mainly custom – and more than 100 employees. Headquartered in Hollister since 2004, the company is in a growth mode and currently exploring expansion options. “We are working with the city right now to try and figure out the best way to make an expansion work,” CEO Ted Davis said. “We are growing 50% over last year and we are thrilled that the city is willing to sit down with us and figure out the next step.” With thousands of houses in the area currently permitted or under construction, Davis sees the housing market as a boon for a future talent pool, and thinks that people will find the community the perfect place to live and work. “There are some great people here, a lot of people involved in philanthropic efforts. It’s a small community, but when you get involved, you can see a positive impact.” Mike Corbin with Corbin Motorcycle Seats & Accessories moved his company to Hollister in 1997 and hasn’t looked back. As the world’s leading manufacturer of motorcycle saddles, Corbin has found both Hollister and the world famous Hollister Motorcycle Rally to be the perfect fit for his company. “We helped resurrect the Rally in 1995, and the Rally made Hollister very appealing,” Corbin said. “When we outgrew our old place, we decided to move here to help with the Rally and continue to grow.” The Hollister Motorcycle Rally isn’t the only thing Corbin has worked to resurrect. The Sparrow, the company’s electric car, made its mark in the late nineties, and over 300 units were made before the company ceased production in 2003. The car is on track to go back into production with 100 units to be released in 2017. The new model will be a technologically advanced version of the original, and Corbin and his team will hand build each unit in Hollister.

(growing strong)

McKinnon Lumber (early 1900’s) “I started this company in my garage in the 60s and am happy to have a Hollister address today,” Corbin said. “This is a good community, the people are great, and there’s no resistance to what we do. Hollister is a good place to live and a great place to do business.”

AGRICULTURE Agriculture is San Benito County’s largest industry, accounting for $360,593 in total commodity values in 2015, an 11% increase over 2014 totals. With the county’s famous Wine Trail, many people think about grapes when looking at agriculture in San Benito County. While grapes definitely have their place, they are only a small part of San Benito County’s agricultural landscape. San Benito County’s strength is based on diversity. Producing a variety of commodities, San Benito County is one of the top five producing counties in California for spinach, lettuces, salad mix, and peppers. The county also produces a number of field and row crops, fruits, nuts, vegetables, and provides acres and acres of land for cattle, livestock, and poultry. San Benito County had 77 certified organic registered growers in 2015, producing a wide variety of fruit, nut, vegetable, nursery, feed, and seed crops. Organic farming is an important part of the agricultural economy in San Benito County as consumer demand and grower returns continue to increase. Several growers in San Benito County have taken their working farms and

turned a profit in different ways. Dick and Bonnie Swank are no exception. With 350 acres, 125 of which are certified organic, the Swanks grow fruits, vegetables, and ornamentals and sell their produce at Farmers Markets, restaurants, direct to independent grocery stores, on the wholesale market, and more. They also offer a “fresh” Heirloom Salsa at their Farmers Market booths. While Swank Farms grows and sells some great produce in the county, they are best known for their annual corn maze. Swank Farms opens their annual maze from September 30 through October 31, with different activities during the day, and on the weekends the haunted “Terror in the Corn” attraction comes into play after dark. Located in the corn field, much of the haunt is outside under the moon and starts with guests maneuvering through buildings and structures. “Our corn maze is more than a haunted attraction, it is a great place to bring your family for a day full of fun with activities for all ages and two mazes to explore that are not scary,” Bonnie Swank said. “We have food, activities, a pumpkin patch, and so much more.” Casa de Fruta also expanded on their family’s farm. Since 1908 when the family planted their first orchards, Casa de Fruta has grown into a diversified operation encompassing a variety of business ventures. What started out as a fruit stand and a place for travelers to get off the road has grown into a popular

destination for travelers from around the world. Visitors can pan for gold in the sluice or enjoy a ride on the carousel and train. Specialty coffees and fresh pies are always available and visitors can pick up some fresh-from-the-orchard produce, browse through the gourmet groceries, grab something from the deli, dine at the 24-hour restaurant, sample awardwinning wines from Zanger Vineyards, shop for unique gifts, or even stay a few nights at the Inn or RV park. “We get a good number of travelers and then many local people who come out for the day with their kids to ride the train and carousel or pan for gold. It’s a perfect afternoon activity,” General Manager Gene Zanger said. “There’s always something going on. We have wine tastings, and a variety of special events. With over one million visitors each year, this is a family tradition that continues to grow.” Bertuccio’s Market is another venture that got its start in the Hollister soil. The fruit stand was started by the Bertuccio family, and Joe and Karen Tonascia took over in 2000. Today the Market serves as a great place for people to get fresh local and organic produce, local organic milk, farm fresh eggs, and a full line of dried fruit and nuts. The Tonascias funnel some of the fruit and produce they grow – including the Blenheim Apricots – to the Market, and many other local growers do the same. “For growers, San Benito County has the perfect climate with great soil conditions,” Karen Tonascia said. “It’s also a great place to raise a family. San Benito County provides a whole way of life.”

SAN JUAN BAUTISTA With the historic Mission and Plaza, San Juan Bautista is brimming with rich history, and works hard to preserve it. Part of those efforts include a ban on formula or franchise businesses in an effort to maintain the historic downtown. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a thriving business community though, as San Juan Bautista, like the rest of San Benito County, is growing.

Earthbound Farms Organic is located nearby, and is the largest producer of organic salads in the U.S. It was also the first company to produce prewashed, packaged salad greens on an industrial scale. On a smaller scale, Mansmith’s Gourmet is making their flavors known, and their seasonings were recently named, “Best on the Planet” at the American Royal International BBQ Competition in Kansas City. Known for their 100% natural barbecue sauces and spices, Mansmith’s Gourmet manufactures a concentrated gourmet BBQ paste and dry rub seasonings for indoor and outdoor grilling and broiling. The Mansmith family became known for their famous open grill barbecuing at numerous charity and fundraising events, and turned their passion into an awardwinning line of spice blends and sauces. Jon Mansmith began manufacturing seasoning blends in 1985 as an offshoot of his charity barbecuing and catering business. By 2006, Mansmith’s son had taken over the catering and Jon was focused on the spices full time. He started the business on the land where he grew up and still operates there today. With thriving distribution channels and internet sales, Mansmith stays busy. “I had a water testing laboratory that I had the chance to sell, and wasn’t sure what else to do at age 40, so I started manufacturing the spice blends I had been using all along,” Mansmith said. “I’ve always been creative, inventive, and this was a natural progression.” San Benito County offers some of the best sightseeing and outdoor adventures in California. With everything from beautiful hiking trails to the newly designated Pinnacles National Park, there truly is something for everyone. There’s a rich history at work too, as illustrated by San Juan Bautista’s historic Mission, Plaza and downtown. The cultural aspects of the community are widespread too, and Latino theatrical production worldwide is shaped at El Teatro Campesino. The business community provides the backbone for the rest of it to grow.

here is plenty to discover in San Benito County, and as a result, tourism is big business. With numerous entertainment options and outdoor activities, San Benito County is a popular place to get away from it all for a day or a weekend, and since the area has something for everyone, it’s also a great place to plan a vacation. Over 250,000 people visit the newly designated Pinnacles National Park each year. When you factor in the growing agri-tourism numbers and the people traveling to the area to visit destination wineries, organic farms, ranches, and quaint inns, those numbers grow even larger. Add to that the travelers taking part in the old world charm of Hollister, Tres Pinos, Paicines and New Idria, the historical aspects of San Juan Bautista, or the cultural offerings of El Teatro Campesino and it’s easy to see why San Benito County has become a Central Coast destination.

(business & more) There are also plenty of reasons to do business in the county, the Hollister Municipal Airport being one of them. The airport is a city-owned public-use airport located three miles north of the central business district. What makes the airport unique in serving a community the size of Hollister is the length of the runway – at 6,350 feet long, the primary runway is qualified to handle a fully loaded Boeing 737. The airport also charges no landing fees and has a fixed base operator and premium car rental service on site to accommodate business and personal travelers. The airport has also been designated through the fence access (TTF), which means adjacent businesses have access to the airport’s runway and/or taxiway system. TTF operations occur from property that is immediately adjacent to the airport but which is owned by corporations, businesses, or private parties. That access is huge for developer Ken Lindsey and Airpark Business Center. His development allows companies land ownership with airport access, as well as building to suit for sale or lease. In essence, his tenants can build their office complex

or manufacturing plant and have their own personal hanger in the back. “Most cities this size don’t have an airport, and those that do have much smaller ones,” Lindsey said. “I’m a pilot and use an aircraft in my business. Most Silicon Valley companies do too. Companies that have key managers that need to travel to solve problems, provide innovation and so on can really benefit if they can get on a plane and land at their facility in 15-20 minutes.” Many companies in Silicon Valley are running out of room and Hollister has become a go to place for companies needing to expand. Airpark Business Center has several tenants in place and is located on 100 acres with 33 parcels. North Pointe Business Park, is across the street and the 20-acre master planned development is divided to hold as many as 70 companies. Citation Business Park is also nearby with room for larger companies, and Hollister Business Park has also proven to be a welcome addition to the region’s industrial base. “Building here benefits the community in so many different ways,” Lindsey added. “What is kind of nice

about the industrial area being out by the airport is the fact that it’s very compatible, and being on the north end of town means that trucking and commuters have easy access without impacting Hollister’s residential areas. Hollister is located between Highway 101 on the western boundary and Interstate 5 to the east, and is one of the fastest growing areas in California. Given Hollister’s proximity to Monterey, San Jose and Silicon Valley, the city is fast outgrowing its “bedroom community” persona and growing into a place to do business. As a result, City Manager Bill Avera and his staff work hard to continually bring in new industry and commercial growth to the area, and work with local businesses by attracting companies that would be complementary to the work they do. “We are actively marketing some of the properties we have available, and try to make sure that we get a list of expanding businesses to approach on a regular basis,” Avera said. “We reach out to the companies that will be a good fit and definitely try to make ourselves accessible to them.” There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to bringing new businesses to Hollister, instead, Avera and city officials try to accommodate each company. “We don’t have off the shelf incentives, instead we just try to help each company based on their unique situation.” “Economic development is a big deal for us, and I have people that can pursue that and jump on opportunities as they happen,” Avera added. “We also work very hard to have relationships with businesses already here and help them grow in place.” Ultimately, quality of life is king in San Benito County, and officials work hard to provide a great place to do business, while preserving the history, natural beauty, and old world charm that has tourists flocking to the county in droves. As Avera sums up, “Just living here is great. The community, the location and our climate. I truly can’t think of a better place to live and work in California.”

Thrift Shop Opens To Help Rescue Pets Forgiving Paws Thrift Shop in Hollister is making a difference in San Benito County and beyond. This non-profit organization serves as a source of muchneeded funding to support the life-saving work of animal shelters and rescues. Maggie Lairson’s journey to create Forgiving Paws began in November of 2006. Maggie was a Pug Breeder and lost her Pug family to a pet food recall. Following the tragedy, she set out on a mission to rescue pets in need. What she discovered was that ample funding was a continuous challenge for herself and others with the same mission. After years of grass-roots garage sales to raise money for her cause, in March of 2015, her dream of a permanent storefront and the Forgiving Paws Thrift Shop in Hollister

was realized. Since opening its doors, the store has raised more than $40,000 to support shelters and rescues. Forgiving Paws is managed completely by generous volunteers. All of them share a passion that extends beyond fundraising, including fostering and transporting pets in need. And the organization also supports the SPUTER Fund, a spay and neuter program which helps families who need financial assistance. To date, the SPUTER Fund, which was launched on the Shop’s 1st anniversary in March 2016, has supported the spay and neuter for six dogs and cats. A donation box in the Shop’s front lobby specifically supports the SPUTER Fund, and donations are matched monthly from Shop sales.

Forgiving Paws is open Wednesday – Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Racks of gently used Men, Women & Children’s clothing, home décor items, Vintage & Costume Jewelry, collectables & antiques, books, CDs & DVDs and other treasures fill the Shop. The clean, well-lighted Shop is air conditioned, has shopping baskets, and a dressing room for your convenience. There are multiple ways you can support the effort. Become a volunteer, donate quality items, donate through the Forgiving Paws website, SHOP here often and tell your friends! Hope to see you soon!

THE MAGIC OF

SAN JUAN BAUTISTA A

s one of the oldest cites in California, San Juan Bautista is brimming with rich history and small town charm. Named after the Mission San Juan Bautista, the city is an easy diversion off Highway 101. Although it is primarily an agricultural town, San Juan Bautista offers visitors some of the best antique shopping on the Central Coast, with great dining and recreation options in a relaxed and historic setting.

SAN JUAN BAUTISTA PROVIDES THE BEST OPPORTUNITY TO APPRECIATE THE CALIFORNIA OF 160 YEARS AGO WITH 30 HISTORIC BUILDINGS IN A 12-BLOCK AREA SURROUNDING THE SPANISH PLAZA.

San Juan Bautista provides the best opportunity to appreciate the California of 160 years ago with 30 historic buildings in a 12-block area surrounding the Spanish Plaza. Adding to the community’s unique charm, many businesses are housed in vintage brick, stone, adobe and Victorian structures in a variety of architectural styles built between the late 1700s through the 1880s. OLD MISSION SAN JUAN BAUTISTA The Old Mission San Juan Bautista “The Mission of Music” was founded

June 24, 1797, and has had an unbroken succession of pastors since. In June 1803, the cornerstone was laid for the present church and was dedicated on June 23, 1812, with interior finishes continuing through 1817. Vestiges of the original El Camino Real (the King’s Highway) can still be seen north of the cemetery. The Old Mission has the largest church of any of the Missions and has retained much of the charm of its former days. Today, of the Mission quadrangle, only the large front wing is standing. The Plaza facing the Mission and the buildings around it are designated a

Renovations in 1976 opened up the church’s arches into the side aisles, and the bell wall was added. Visitors can see the restored kitchen area, and a museum with a multitude of interesting objects from the Mission’s past. SAN JUAN BAUTISTA STATE HISTORIC PARK The San Juan Bautista State Historic Park is adjacent to the Mission, and the park and its Plaza represent what was once the town square. The Park includes several structures built in the 1800s and the four main historic museums are the Plaza Hotel, the Zanetta House or Plaza Hall, the Plaza Stables, and the Castro-Breen Adobe. Many of the interiors have exhibits that help create a unique learning

environment for people of all ages. The park also features a blacksmith shop, the historic jail and an early American settler’s cabin. The park is open daily for self-guided visits and offers guided walking tours by advanced reservation. School tours are also available and the Park offers on average four tours a day, four days a week for students. According to Park Ranger Jennifer Naber, the Park sees about 100,000 visitors per year, including over 40,000 students. “We see all kinds of visitors,” Naber said. “Sometimes students bring their parents back after their visit, sometimes tourists come off the 101, and a lot of visitors to the Mission come over.” EL TEATRO CAMPESINO Since its inception, El Teatro Campesino and its founder and artistic director, Luis Valdez, have set the standard for Latino theatrical production in the United States. Founded in 1965 on the Delano Grape Strike picket lines of Cesar Chavez’s United Farmworkers Union, the company continues to be an artist driven professional community based theater organization, dedicated to the development of artists and new original works. “Central to our work is recognition and value of our indigenous and farm worker roots,” El Teatro Campesino Board Member Phil Esparza said. “Our 47 years in San Juan Bautista have added greatly to the community’s economy and culture. Add to that, our ongoing educational efforts that provide basic and advanced theater training to our youth and other members of our immediate community and the impact has been noticeable.” With three to six original productions per year, Valdez remains true to his original vision, which is performance that addresses the Chicano experience in America in a context meaningful to all Americans. He is a winner of the George Peabody Award, founding member of the California Arts Council and his best known works include “Zoot Suit,” “Vertigo,” “La Bamba,” and “Corridos”.

Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail

El Teatro Campesino holds a vibrant place in the community and is well known to residents and visitors alike. The company is actively planning ways to continue development and to develop artists and original work, and it is planning to create a new Theater Center to support their efforts. JUAN BAUTISTA DE ANZA NATIONAL HISTORIC TRAIL The history in San Juan Bautista doesn’t stop with the Mission. The 1,200-mile Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail also runs through the area and commemorates the route traveled in 1775 and 1776 by Spanish Lt. Colonel Juan Bautista de Anza and a group of colonists from Sonora, Mexico. The travelers settled Alta, California, and established a mission and presidio in

Naomi Torres, the Superintendent of the Trail points out how the Trail captures the history of early California. “It highlights the beauty of California and represents the natural landscapes and native people who were significantly impacted by the expedition and further colonization. It also represents the families who settled in the area as part of the Anza Expedition story.”

FREMONT PEAK STATE PARK For the outdoor enthusiast, Fremont Peak is a great hike with incredible views. From San Juan Canyon Road, the hike to the summit is along an easy half mile trail that ascends 300 feet. The hike is worth it, because the view from the summit is stunning. From the top of the trail, visitors can see the Monterey Peninsula and Bay, the South Bay mountains, the Diablo range from Pacheco Peak southward, and the San Benito Valley. Residents of San Juan Bautista have embraced their namesake and rallied together over the years to preserve the community’s rich history, and have consistently taken ownership of the icons and symbols that make their community home. Whether learning, shopping, dining, hiking, or exploring, there’s no place in California like San Juan Bautista.

THE SAINTS, SAN JUAN BAUTISTA CHRISTMAS ICONS

T

he City of San Juan Bautista, or the City of History, as it is also known is proud of that history and its traditions. One of these traditions is the posting of the historic Mission Saints hung from lamp posts along Third Street during the holiday season. There are currently 44 Saints, representing the 21 California Missions and Father Serra. They were based on a painting by the Reverend Michael Buckley, an artist-priest of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in New Cuyama, California. The Saints were first hung in 1965 and became very weathered. Some dedicated local artists have kept them refurbished including

Artist Ursula Hanes Guthrie who was asked to make a new set of Saints in 1983. In 2001 the icons were not hung in their usual places during the holiday season because of their condition after 18 years of use, but the community, local businesses and artists pulled together to fund the estimated $20,000 cost of refurbishing the Saints. Local artists Gayle Sleznick and Norman Scott worked hours to restore the icons and in 2002 they were back where they belonged. In 2002 the San Juan Chamber of Commerce began the Saint Adoption Program to raise money for future restoration and the Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista took over

the program when the San Juan Chamber closed. The Rotary continues the Saint Adoption Program to fund restoration, storage and hanging of the Saints each holiday season. Artist Gayle Sleznick continues to work with the Rotary to restore the Saints as needed in order to keep the tradition alive.

Pinnacles National Park is the newest National Park and a huge draw, with over 200,000 visitors each year. Guests can journey through grasslands, chaparral, oak woodlands and canyon bottoms. Hikers also have access to rare talus caves and towering rock spires, usually dotted with Prairie and Peregrine falcons, Golden eagles, and the occasional California condor. “Pinnacles is a big draw for people to come to San Benito County. I love the fact that we are so close to so many wonderful things – the ocean, the bay area, and we aren’t even that far from the Sierras,” Pinnacles National Park Superintendent Karen Beppler-Dorn says. “While we’re near Silicon Valley, we’re a world away with these beautiful open landscapes and the legacy of the land.” Catering to some of the visitors from Pinnacles and helping them make the most of their time in San Benito County is where Tim Borland with Bar SZ Ranch comes in. “Pinnacles is only 10 minutes away, and while we’re just 90 minutes

The area has some wonderful tastes to offer when it comes to food and wine. Whatever visitors are looking for they can find along with a fantastic dining experience. A staple of the Hollister food scene is Paine’s Restaurant & Bar, which has been serving the community since 1929. Paine’s is known for great food, casual fine dining, a good helping of local wines, and great service. Chef John Kouretas, who has been working in the restaurant business since he was 15, developed his style under top chefs in the Bay Area and brought that home to Hollister. “At Paine’s we do a lot of steaks, pastas and fresh seafood. The people here are great, and really support the work we do.” A relative newcomer in casual dining is Fisher’s, offering New American style cuisine. Opening in early 2016, the restaurant represents world-class chef Mike Fisher’s homecoming after learning his trade at Le Cordon Bleu Paris and working in some of New York’s finest restaurants. Learning many things along the way, Fisher moved back to the west coast and worked in San Diego and Carmel before returning to the Central Coast. “Hollister is home. We live in the best microclimate in the world, and the bounty of ingredients, namely the produce, doesn’t get any better than it does here,” Fisher said. “Something as simple as an onion has to travel a distance, but I can get those right here. My base ingredients come out of the dirt right here in San Benito.” Regardless of what brings visitors to San Benito County the first time, the breathtaking views and old world charm keep them coming back. From Pinnacles National Park to a variety of festivals and recreational activities, San Benito County has everything in place to make it the perfect place to shop, dine, stay and play in California.

THE SAN BENITO COUNTY

SADDLE HORSE SHOW & RODEO

I

n the summer of 1929 a meeting was held in Hollister by a group composed principally of owners or managers of the larger cattle ranches of San Benito County. These men met for the purpose of considering the feasibility of staging a rodeo-type show in conjunction with the annual county fair. It was recognized by those in attendance that over the years, native reined cow horses had been often featured in rodeo-type exhibitions in various sections of San Benito County, notably San Juan Bautista, Hollister and Panoche. While the ventures were not financially successful, they were exceedingly popular with the residents of the county. So, first deciding that it was both desirable and feasible and that all present were willing to work for it, the next decision was that the show should feature principally the cowboy and cow horse contests, putting them on in much the same way as the California Rodeo at Salinas, but with the important distinction that it would be run, both in management and participation, by San Benito County residents exclusively. The dates for the first show were set to coincide with the last two days of the fair, September 28 and 29, 1929. The event has been going since that first year only taking off for four years during World War II. The ground allotted for use was the old river bottom, largely sand and gravel and covered with a rambling assortment of large and small willow and cottonwood trees. Men from various ranches in the county, as they could be spared, erected corrals, arena fencing and a chute from which came the steers for roping and the bucking bulls. In 1930 a circular track was built to accommodate the horse races which were a popular event; also, more corrals and a second chute were added. From this humble beginning the Saddle Horse Show has evolved to what it is today. This historic event showcases the California Vaquero style, a nod to San Benito’s rich cultural past. The county’s signature event is the “Figure 8 Roping,” which requires great skill and is unique to the San Benito County event. Generations have attended and participated in this event for years. It is a true California tradition.

San Benito County Vineyards

Bar SZ Ranch routinely has couples come from as far away as the east coast to celebrate their big day. Recently named number one in the 10 Best Outdoor Wedding Destinations Across the U.S. by Tripping.com, Bar SZ Ranch owner Tim Borland says he provides the canvas – a working ranch with the animals and ranch activities – and the bride designs the wedding experience. “Each wedding is different, and each bride has her vision of her big day,” Borland said. “The location is spectacular and the possibilities are endless.” The ranch sleeps 35 guests with additional room for RV and tent camping. The honeymoon suite – once the art studio of world renowned artist Thomas Kinkade – has breathtaking views of the San Benito Mountains. Beyond the big day, wedding party guests can enjoy

horseback riding, roping, hayrides, trap and skeet shooting, archery, hiking and more. Just down the road from Bar SZ Ranch is Paicines Ranch, another popular wedding destination that offers guests panoramic views, sweeping lawns, and beautifully restored historic buildings. All wedding rentals include use of the Grogan Lawn, a spacious, park-like setting that is bordered by a Mediterranean garden and surrounded by stunning views. Offering guests flexibility and privacy, Paicines Ranch can easily accommodate groups ranging from 50-350. “We are encouraging eco-weddings and help couples reduce their environmental impact and have a celebration that they can feel good about in a multitude of ways,” Wedding Coordinator Mary Rowen said. “When couples get married at Paicines Ranch, they feel a sense of peace and tranquility and that’s the perfect way to begin their happily ever after!” The newest venue to enter the

wedding business is the Lemon Grove. Set to open in 2017, Janet Lompa and her family are expanding their working 50-acre lemon orchard to serve as an event venue for parties, weddings, corporate events, and other special occasions. As the only citrus growers currently in the county, the Lompas first built an adobe house on their land and then had to build a reservoir for their orchard. From there, they put in stone walls and several fountains coupled with landscaping and flowers to create a beautiful oasis. It was at the urging of friends and family that The Lemon Grove as an event center was born, and Lompa is already fielding interest. “This entire area is like a hidden treasure and perfect for weddings and so much more,” Lompa said. “While we’re not that far from Silicon Valley or the Bay area, you feel like you are in another world. We’ve got beautiful blossoms, fruit, and views. That’s something you can’t get in an urban area. It’s different here.” For couples in the mood for country

club luxury, San Juan Oaks Golf Club fits the bill. With a clubhouse reminiscent of the Old Mission located just a few minutes away in San Juan Bautista, San Juan Oaks’ tile roof, wide hallways, broad windows, arched entryways, exposed wooden trusses, and sleek hanging light fixtures seamlessly merge today’s luxury with yesterday’s charm. General Manager Scott Fuller says the venue hosts 30-40 weddings per year, mostly to guests from the region. “We have beautiful venues in San Benito County – ours and others. It’s not just the venues themselves that make this area so appealing, the surrounding atmosphere is beautiful,” Fuller said. “I also think there’s a warm, friendly hospitality here and that’s great for weddings.” The beauty in San Benito County isn’t limited to wedding venues, the San Benito County Wine Trail remains one of the Central Coast’s best kept secrets. Tucked away in a nurturing microclimate ideal for producing premium wines, San Benito County boasts about 3,000 acres of vineyards, a handful of wineries, and some of California’s oldest and youngest grapevines. Calera Winery has its tasting room on top of a mountain to allow for a view of the land, while Pietra Santa offers 16 wines and a few organic extra virgin olive oils. DeRose Vineyards is the oldest winery in the state and is located on land that has been producing grapes for more than 150 years. The DeRose and Cedolini families, whose ancestors have been making wine for over 10 generations, purchased the vineyards and cellars in 1988 along with partner Ernie Miller. In addition to revitalizing the vineyards, they downsized the large operation into an ultra-premium artisan winery. Pat DeRose is proud of the fact that the winery is known today for their award-winning Zinfandel, Negrette, Cabernet Franc and Viognier, and is dedicated to producing wines his ancestors would be proud of. “This is a great region for wine, and we have

Paicines Ranch Event Center some world renowned Pinots right here in San Benito County.” “It’s also a really neat place to visit,” DeRose said. “All of the vineyards in San Benito County are reasonably priced, friendly, and we all like having visitors.” Whether in the area for a wedding, a vacation, or a Sunday drive, there

are plenty of reasons to stop along the San Benito Wine Trail. With countless ways to enjoy the beauty of the area, the hospitality of the residents, and the world-class wines and amenities, San Benito County truly is a great place to consider when planning your wedding or next weekend getaway.

an Benito County may very well be California’s best kept secret. Located just 45 minutes from the Pacific Ocean and an hour south of Silicon Valley, San Benito County boasts some of California’s best wineries, a number of recreational activities and attractions, an abundance of festivals, and more. With a wide variety of landscapes, an average temperature in the upper 60’s, and 333 days a year of sunshine, the county truly is a place that can be enjoyed any time of year. With a population of 58,792 (up 6.4% from 2010), San Benito County is home to the cities of Hollister (population 36,600) and San Juan Bautista (population 1,922) and the communities of Aromas, Tres Pinos, Paicines and New Idria make up the rest of the county. With top notch educational and healthcare services, and thriving economy coupled with some of the most beautiful views in the state, San Benito County has something for everyone. Hollister has been one of the fastest growing communities in California during the past decade, but still maintains the quality of living that has made it attractive to people from around the country. The County seat, Hollister is located just 50 miles south of San Jose and 40 miles east of Monterey, and has managed to keep its small town values and old world charm. With a great business and employment climate, Hollister City Manager Bill Avera stays busy bringing new industry and commercial growth to the area. He refers new residents to a number of organizations in the community and resources the city has in place to help newcomers settle in quickly.

“Growth is going pretty good right now. We have a number of housing starts and developers are selling residential property pretty quickly,” Avera said. “When it comes to rental properties, that can be harder because we don’t have a lot of vacancies.” San Juan Bautista is located 15 minutes away in the heart of the San

Juan Valley between the Gabilan Mountains and Flint Hills. As one of the oldest towns in California, San Juan Bautista is rich with culture – from the Mission to El Teatro Campesino – and offers residents and visitors a refreshing atmosphere filled with the charm and character of the past.

have rallied together over the years to preserve their community’s rich history, and have consistently taken ownership of the icons and symbols that make their community home. When the discussion around growth and development became an issue, the community banded together once again to weigh in on the city’s community vision for goals and policies to guide future decision making and development – working together for the betterment of their community, and their way of life. From a number of charming in-town options to lots on the city’s outskirts, there is housing in San Juan Bautista to match every taste and budget. There are also many new housing developments in various stages of construction, each providing additional options to meet the area’s increasing demand. “There are so many reasons to relocate,” Avera said. “We have an excellent climate, and San Jose, Santa Cruz, and Monterey are all easy drives. You can even get to Yosemite quickly. There are so many wonderful places, and they are all so close.” EDUCATION San Benito County has 11,000 students and 11 school districts providing families a quality education no matter which part of the county they live in. From the very small rural schools serving 5-30 students to the high schools and charter schools, San Benito County offers students strong educational programs to prepare them for future success. There are also several private and religious schools to round out the area’s options. According to Krystal Lomato, San Benito County Superintendent of Schools, educators work diligently to make sure students attain a quality education and reach whatever goal they want after high school. “San Benito County is a great place that allows parents to be involved in the educational success of their students,” Lomanto says. “We have caring teachers, committed staff and administrators who care about the academic success of their students.”

HEALTHCARE Access to quality hospitals, doctors and health-care providers is a must for most people relocating to San Benito County, and the infrastructure is in place to meet most healthcare needs. There are currently 100 doctors that practice in San Benito County. The San Benito Health Foundation Community Health Center offers medical, dental and WIC services at their main location or at their San Juan Bautista Clinic, and Pinnacle Urgent Care is open daily for residents and visitors’ medical needs. Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital has four community health clinics, a multispecialty center, an orthopedic specialty center and a primary care center. Hazel Hawkins also offers 24-hour emergency services with an 18-bed state-of-the-art Emergency Department and two clinics with evening and weekend hours. “We are fortunate that even though we are a smaller, rural community, we have access to excellent health care in our area. The hospital, through the generosity of donors and a tax bond measure, built a new Women’s Center with 13 private birthing suites and technologically advanced diagnostic imaging services for women, and a new ER,” Frankie Gallagher, Hazel Hawkins Director of Marketing said. “We have excellent physicians and staff and the personalized care our patients receive from all of our healthcare providers is a testament to their dedication in serving the community in which they live and work.” San Benito County’s breathtaking landscape coupled with a vibrant and

JOINING CHAMBER IS ADVANTAGEOUS www.DiscoverSanBenitoCounty.com | www.SanBenitoCountyChamber.com One of the most beneficial moves that a local business can make is to join the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce. This member-driven association has a mission to promote and facilitate the growth of the business community. Serving its members since 1921, the chamber staff looks forward to many more years of service. To fulfill its goal of assisting existing ventures and attracting new ones, the chamber works closely with the City of Hollister and the County of San Benito to keep business bustling and consumers attracted to the area. This partnership additionally

promotes the perfect atmosphere for entrepreneurs looking for a home for their company. Assisting with the area’s economy is not the chamber’s only objective, though. The group also provides a unified voice for members in governmental affairs on local, state and national levels. It follows issues that could affect business and encourages elected officials to support those that would have a positive impact on local businesses. An important benefit of membership is networking with other area business people. By sponsoring membership luncheons, Business After Hours, Lunch &

Learns and other functions where the chamber provides valuable opportunities for members to make new business contacts. Referrals are another direct benefit of membership. When the chamber office receives calls about where to obtain particular products or services, members are always the first reference the chamber staff provides. These are just some of the reasons why businesses should align themselves with an organization that cares about its members and the community. Contact the chamber to see what other benefits the group can offer your company.
