What is it?
Tanaka Farms is famous for our delicious, sweet and juicy strawberries! The Strawberry Picking Tour allows guests to pick (and eat!) their own strawberries in the fields right where they grow!
How does it work?
Take a one hour long wagon ride around the farm. Learn about the farming methods and history of our farm from your friendly tour guide. You will see how fruits and vegetables grow!

Everyone will take home a one pound basket of strawberries!

OUR STRAWBERRY GARDEN
For those looking to pick strawberries without a tour...
We offer strawberry picking in our Strawberry Garden, depending upon crop availability, just behind our Market Stand on a first come first served basis.
Ask the cashier for a basket to pick your own strawberries.
As long as we have enough strawberries growing, you can pick your own!*
Note: This is different from our Strawberry Tours, as the amount of strawberries growing behind the Market is limited. The Garden is not a pick and eat area. To ensure that everyone can enjoy the experience, strawberries only go in your baskets, not in your bellies!
*Due to the limited strawberry plants in this area, we may not always have strawberries available for picking here. Please call the market stand ahead of time at (949) 653-2100 ext 203 to see if the garden is open that day. To ensure that you are able to pick strawberries, join us on a strawberry tour.
Public Drinking Water Is Not Available.
Bring your own or bottled water is available for purchase at $2.00 bottle.
FOR YOUR SAFETY we recommend wearing comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting dirty. Please avoid wearing sandals/flip-flops, open-toed shoes or high heels.
In complying with insurance policies, and for your protection, PETS and WAGONS are prohibited.
