Strawberry Tours

NOTICE, 4/12/18:  Due to the hot weather the last couple of days, many of the strawberries were damaged with sunburn and are not edible; therefore, we are cancelling all Strawberry Tours this weekend if you don’t already have an existing reservation. (We aren’t taking anymore reservations for this weekend.) We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

We will still have our Strawberry Festival going 10 am -3 pm on Saturday and Sunday with games, arts and crafts, strawberry ice cream making, strawberry topped churros, strawberry angel cake, strawberry salsa and vendors will be coming out.  

In place of the Strawberry Tours, we will be running our U-Pick Vegetable Tours Saturday and Sunday, 9:30-2:30 every 30 minutes. Take a FREE wagon ride around the farm and go out into the field and pick vegetables and just pay for what you pick.  Things that you may pick are cauliflower, broccoli, Maui onions, kale, carrots, and Swiss chard. Things may change due to availability. 

Once again thank you for your patronage and see you at the farm!

Our Strawberry Garden

 These strawberries are located behind our market stand out in the field. They are hydroponically grown in these tubes. The tubes are filled with coconut husk. We run drip irrigation pipes to water these strawberries. Call ahead to make sure we have enough berries for picking here as they get picked through very quickly.

For those looking to pick strawberries without a tour....

We offer strawberry picking in our Strawberry Garden just behind our Market Stand at $5.00/lb.  

Ask the cashier for a green 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.
