For 139 years, The Ferndale Enterprise has been the paper of record for the historic Victorian Village and surrounding areas. The award-winning publication – one of the smallest in California, we might add – covers Ferndale like a blanket with news of the dairy industry, city politics, hard-hitting editorials, school news, old-fashioned social columns, art news and sports stories, as well as features on locals that make the Cream City such a unique place to call home.
While Ferndale may be the hub of our area, we don’t neglect our neighbors who trek into town from the Bear and Mattole River Valleys. Our columnists “from the hills” also are a big part of our newspaper, keeping all of us informed of the “goings on” in the outlying areas.
The Ferndale Enterprise is “all about us” – us being the community we live and work in and are proud to call home. We’re also extremely proud of our more than 30 state and national awards from the National Newspaper Association as well the California Newspapers Publishers Association. In 2016, The Enterprise and its publisher won the triple crown of Free Speech, Open Government and First Amendment awards. Caroline Titus was name the recipient of the 2016 First Amendment Coalition’s Open Government and Free Speech award; the 2016 Nor Cal Society of Professional Journalists James Madison award and the 2016 California Newspaper Publishers Association Freedom of Information award.
And, for advertisers, we like to tell the hundreds of advertisers who do business with us, “If you want to reach Ferndale, it’s through The Enterprise!”
