RC|A created a project Master Plan for Bridgeway Farms, a 200-acre site located along the Highway 80 corridor between the cities of Dixon & Davis. Bridgeway Farms will feature a retail farm stand to sell row and orchard crops, a processing facility to make cheese and ice cream, a winery, an agricultural education center for classes and special events, and on-site worker housing. It will also support vegetable gardens, a vineyard, dairy cows and goats used for milk production and a native plant demonstration area.
Bridgeway Farms is uniquely positioned to attract visitors as they travel between the mountains and the coast. The Farm’s owner and developer, Rich Collins, a successful valley farmer, envisions Bridgeway as a destination location to learn about regional agriculture and food processing. The farm has an existing relationship with UC Davis to foster education and shared information.
Development Phase I will include the building of the farm stand barn and surrounding site improvements. The project will demonstrate the agricultural wealth of the central valley while providing a wonderful opportunity for shopping and picnics.
