Last month, ARC’s Wakamatsu Farm captured the media’s attention again.
Kudos to You!

CNN included Wakamatsu Farm in their fascinating travel article, 13 Sites that Tell the Stories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the US. Closer to home, Bartell’s Backroads of ABC Channel 10 visited and filmed Rediscovering California’s First Japanese Colony in El Dorado County. We are honored and grateful Wakamatsu Farm found its place in both local and national news coverage during Asian American Heritage Month.
