Store opens Wednesday, April 21st!
Unfortunately we will not be hosting tours during the 2021 season.
The Farm is an agricultural education center and local farming business just outside of Salinas, California.
We offer fresh organic produce for sale, farm tours, special family activities and a pleasant rural destination. During the height of our growing season, we also conduct a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscription.
The Uniqueness of the Salinas Valley
We typically grow around thirty different crops on our farm, ranging from strawberries and lettuces to items such as corn, pumpkins and tomatoes. This wide variety of produce is made possible by the uniqueness of the Salinas Valley in terms of soil and weather. In the valley itself, there are around eighty different kinds of fruits and vegetables farmed for market every year. This bounty demonstrates the fact that the Salinas Valley is certainly the most productive farmland in the country, if not the world.
Immediately adjoining our farmshop, you can also see many free-standing, giant statues painted by local artist John Cerney. These statues are modeled on current and former employees of our farming company.
Starting Monday, June 21, at 10am! Due to ongoing pandemic concerns, seating will be limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis. We plan to do mini-Storytimes of 2 stories and 3 songs. When the first Storytime is finished, a new group will be seated and we will then do another mini-Storytime, and another if necessary, until all families have been able to participate.
If you plan on attending, please enter the courtyard through the outside gate. Once a group is done, it will then exit through the store to allow the next group to be seated. Thank you for your understanding!
