A good sized pick-your-own-produce farm. Great way to show kids where their food comes from. Lots of activities for children. The store can be pretty pricey, though.

This place is right before you get to Bakersfield, so it's really in middle of nowhere, but you can pick fruit, buy picked fruit in the store, and they have little casual lunch place inside too. Every season, they have some activities going on, and...More

Every... Single... Time... we go up the hill, if it's early enough, we have to stop in at Murray Farm's!!! Most times we stop, we really don't need anything... I think it's more like wanting to support them, someway, somehow!!! Love you guys!!!!!

The ticket price includes nearly everything! The only thing not included is our Paintball and potato gun! We hate having an extra charge, but the cost of potatoes and paintballs got out of control!
