This fun tour begins with a guided wagon ride around the farm, learning about farm history and farming methods.  The wagon stops in different parts of the farm so you can try a variety of seasonal vegetables.  During the last part of the tour, relax in the tasting tent where your guide will cut and serve several types of melons we grow.  Finally, you will get to take home your own personal melon!  

(Please note that unlike the strawberry tour, this is not a picking tour.  Our farmers pre-pick the ripest melons in the morning so that everyone goes home with a good melon).

Our best kept secret is that summer is the most delicious season for fruits and vegetables!  Come and taste the bounties of summer during the tour.  Cool off with juicy melons as well as ice cold strawberry lemonade in the market.  

We are still taking reservations for summer camps and day care programs as well as corporate events.  Call Reservations at (949) 653-2100 ext. 204 today!
