Where are you located?
We are conveniently located in the heart of Irvine! We are just south of the 405 Freeway off University Drive. Our physical address is 5380 3/4 University Drive, Irvine, CA 92612.
From the 405, exit University Drive and head south. Turn Left on to Strawberry Farms Road. Our parking lot is the first driveway on the LEFT. Entrance to the farm is at the center of the parking lot near the big tent.
What are your business hours?
Our Pumpkin Patch and Produce Market Stand are open daily from 9am to 6pm through October 30th.
We will be closing early on Halloween Day, October 31st, at 3pm, so that our team members can spend time with their little ghouls and goblins.
Beginning November 1, we will resume our normal daily operating hours of 9am to 5pm.

Seasonal Harvest Festivals happen ON THE WEEKENDS ONLY from 10am to 3pm. Each season has its own theme that celebrates what’s being harvested that time of year with games, arts & crafts, as well as guided farm tours. We’re always dreaming up new activities for guests to enjoy!
Games and other activities are all priced separately.
Why do you charge to visit the farm?
It takes a lot of people to keep Tanaka Farms running! Our farm workers out in the fields, our customer service team in our Produce Market Stand, our friendly and knowledgeable Tour Guides, our delivery drivers, groundskeepers, and office staff.
Not to mention the everyday expenses needed to keep the gates open…water, electricity, rent, insurance, farm equipment, etc.
We know you expect a great experience when you come out to visit the farm. And we want to continue to be able to give you that experience. As one of Orange County’s last family owned farms open to the public, we hope to be Educating, Entertaining and Feeding Families for generations to come. Your support will allow us to do just that.
We feel a nominal entrance fee of $4* to visit the grounds, take photos on the tractors, let the kids use up a bit of energy in the play area, and visiting with our rescue flock of chickens is well worth it.
*We never charge to visit our Produce Market Stand.
