Summers Past is a wonderful way to spend a few hours in a very authentic, organic, well-run facility where the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. Between the fresh herbs and flowers you can buy to grow at home, to the coffee stand, the gardens themselves, the cat and dog, the soap shop (where... More

I have been going to Summer's Past Farms for what seems like almost 2 decades. From the freeway you wouldn't know the place exists. It is a wonderful little farm with events. My favorite is Fairy Festival in spring. Children and adults dress up like fairy's for a cute little parade. There is a contest for home built Fairy gardens... More

What a find. We have been going to Summer's Past Farms for years. We start with the maze and make our way to the back yard. Animals are what we are looking for...chickens, rabbits, cats and a dog! Then we walk through the fragrant herbs and try to identify them. Then it is over the bridge to the pumpkin patch!... More

Summers past has everything for a fun afternoon. Shopping in a cute soap store or gift barn. Plants for sale. Wander around lots to see inside and out. Coffee bar. Also took our photographer there for our family pictures last year. (Small charge). Classes.

If you live in the East County of San Diego, and want a place to just relax and maybe read the paper, or stroll around, try this place. Caution: It does get hot here in the summer. So pick a spring day when the flowers are in bloom, enjoy a coffee or tea and just walk around the flowers. Visit... More

You enter into garden maze that ends into a fun gift shop. All the grounds are done really nice and keep up nicely. There is only two indoor shops and an outdoor shop for herbs and plants. Also, an outside coffee/snack bar and a place to sit and enjoy the gounds. The restrooms could of been nicer.

They state that they are in Flinn Springs We visited the farm and found it interesting. This was the wrong time of the year to visit - not many flowers, but still interesting. Wander around and see, check their website. http://summerspastfarms.com/location.htm for events. Wednesday - Saturday: 9:00am - 5:00pm Sunday: 10:00am - 5:00pm Please call for Holiday Hours (619) 390-1523
