I used to go here every once in a while with my dad. They have the best strawberries! This is a great place to go just to relax on a sunny day and get some fresh organic produce and look around their gift shop.

We enjoyed the cats and the chickens. The kids enjoyed the (unmoving) train cars for imaginary play. The produce and the baked goods are great. We didn't see any actual tours during our visit.
