Somewhere in Beullton

North of Los Angeles in the self-proclaimed, "Home of pea soup", known as Buellton, California is Ostrichland. When you see the small black and white sign, pull over. Not only can you buy some fresh produce but for just $4 you can hang out with Ostriches and Emus. These curious animals pose for photos and you can feed them. Inside you can buy bird related products. Enormous eggs, purses, hats and yes...even meat. Give Ostrich a try. Tastes like lean beef if you don't over cook it. This is a classic roadside attraction that harkens back to another time. If you're on the road to Solvang or the Santa Ynez Valley wine country do yourself a favor and feed the birds. You'll be glad you did.
