Farm Visit/CSA Program
What To Expect When You're Visiting

The $40 Season Pass buys you a case of our delicious Asian pears, as well as the ability to visit the farm and pick, and pay for, as much fruit as you want throughout the growing season (June-November). Season Passes are per family or group of 4 and are renewed each season. Please call 707-829-0617 for the most up-to-date information on U-pick.

- No Dogs Please.While we love dogs and have one of our own, many of our customers and their children do not enjoy the canine presence.

This year new memberships/season passes will be required for all visitors. Please plan to bring personal sanitizers and facemasks. Plan to observe the 6-foot protocol for social distancing and wearing a mask when interacting close-up with staff.
