Located off Highway 68 at the Spreckels Boulevard exit just outside of Salinas, the Farm store is open to the public from late April until early November.
Stop by to purchase fresh produce from our fields, or goodies from our bakery, or gifts from our gift shop!
Our gift shop items change seasonally, so be sure to stop by regularly! We offer gift items, kitchen wares, soaps, and t-shirts. We also have a fun selection of toys, an excellent variety of children’s books, and more. It is a great place to shop for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, or “just because”!
The produce stand at The Farm offers the best in fresh and local produce. We emphasize organic produce, although due to price and quality issues we do not carry organic produce exclusively. We pride ourselves on reasonable prices. Our organic produce is often priced below the average prices for conventional produce sold elsewhere. While our expertise is in the vegetables we grow here, we stock an excellent supply of seasonal fruit. We also cultivate field-grown flowers which we use to make our own bouquets. We are always happy to consider your special requests.
What is Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA)? In a nutshell, farmers create CSAs by allowing people to sign up in advance to receive fresh, seasonal produce. It’s kind of like buying a subscription for a newspaper, but instead of a newspaper, you’re getting a box of produce once a week. And, just like not knowing what the news in the newspaper is going to be like, you won’t know what the produce is each week until you get your box. The beauty of a CSA is, in addition to a great discount on price, it encourages you to eat what is seasonal and local. This, in turn, encourages you to add vegetables to your meals that you might normally avoid in the supermarket.
Our CSA for 2020 will start on May 21 and end on October 22. You can sign up by stopping at our farmstand and filling out a form. For those who join our CSA, the CSA boxes will be available for pickup on Thursdays. Like last year, you can sign up for the entire season or for shorter durations (10 weeks, 4 weeks, or even just a single week to try it out). Also, as we understand travel and vacation and other things can complicate schedules, you can let us know by the Monday before if you want to skip certain Thursdays.
