This farm is charming with not only it's fresh vegetable market and pumpkin patch, it has a few animals to keep the children occupied while you shop.

The Farm is conveniently located to my home and promotes organic, locally grown produce. However, on my last visit, the two eggplants I purchased were over ripe and the avocado was totally rotten. Very disappointing

Conveniently located on Highway 68 just outside of Salinas, The Farm is a great place for fresh produce, pies, and and some pretty cool presentations on running a farm. Along with the produce, pies, and gifts, The Farm has programs for school age children that is just right for a class field trip. Tractor rides, music, and educational presentations on... More

Chris at the Farm, a family member of the family that owns the farm, is super knowledgeable and interesting! Granted, my husband and I work in agricultural policy, but this is a must do for anyone who seeks to understand how food is grown. We walked in celery, broccoli, artichoke, and strawberry fields. We were on a 3 hour tour,... More

Music for the kids and real life farm stand. Its all grown here, no wholesalers here. Great presentation and nice facilities. watch for the narrow road leading in just pull over when car comes your way and you will be fine.

We mainly went there for produce but it looks like from what we saw & past reviews, a fun place for kids too. The produce is amazing & there is quite a variety of seasonal fruits & veggies. Cute selection of gift items & children's books/toys/etc.....enjoy!

This is a great place to visit any time, but especially around Halloween, to pick out some pumpkins. There is a fun farm tour you can take as well.
