“Farm to Table!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Everything seems to be grown with lots of care and it shows. The fruits and vegetables could not be any fresher. Everything we bought was always marvelous.

“Summer day camp at Fairview Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This place is an oasis among suburban Goleta. My 7 year old daughter had an amazing experience at their summer camp, planting seedlings, making strawberry jam, feeding the goats, playing in the avocado tree orchard, and doing arts and crafts by using plants from the farm The philosophy of the 110 plus year old organic farm is so wonderful, and we were lucky to be able to bring her for the week. If we lived closer, we would bring her more than a week.
