The Fall season is in full swing. We welcome you to come tour the farm gardens and orchard and fill a harvest basket with edible delights.
Things that we expect to have available for u-picking in October include Winter Luxury pie pumpkins, Autumn berries, figs, pomegranates, Fuyu persimmons, tomatoes, peppers, rhubarb, beets, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatillos, kale, collards, Swiss chard, arugula, lettuce, basil, bay leaves, parsley, fennel, and beautiful bouquets of edible mixed flowers.
In the farm shed we have numerous dried herbs, such as Cascade hops, marshmallow roots, St. John's wort, epazote, Greek oregano, lemon balm, strawberry mint, catnip, apple mint, and more. We also have jars of our raw unfiltered Cloverfield honey and bottles of organic extra-virgin Black Point olive oil.
October is also a great time for planting. The soil is still warm but the days are shorter; providing nurturing conditions for root growth. We have a selection of potted organic edibles for sale in our nursery - Asian orange daylilies, aloe vera, elderberries, Burbank spineless cactus, grapes, fig trees, pomegranates, gazania, strawberries, perennial herbs, and more.
Come to visit and u-pick every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from noon to five. No reservation is needed to come u-pick during our regular u-pick hours. For reserved tours and events, we have alternate times on our website that you can reserve at least four days in advance. Another reserved service that we offer is a guided horse interaction with Magic Ben, hosted by Karen Rose Mathews. We have free parking at 501 La Paloma Rd. Cash, Venmo, credit/debit cards, Paypal, and EBT are all accepted.
We hope you can come enjoy the seasonal abundance and beauty at our farm!
