Blue Sky Center

1000 Perkins Rd, New Cuyama, CA, United States

Head out to the high desert of California’s Central Coast and you never know what you’ll find. With any luck (and possibly a tip-off), you might stumble upon Blue Sky Center, a gorgeous collection of cool eco huts and unique accommodations tucked away under the starry desert sky. This special spot is doing all kinds of great work in their Cuyama community, boosting up local farmers and artists alike.

Our friends over at Moonrise Standard recently hosted a farm-forward feast at the desert digs and filled us in on all the details. Here’s the scoop from Moonrise Standard co-founder, Alana Tivnan.
