Pick Your Own!

 

An afternoon picking berries or tomatoes makes for a fun, back-to-basics family outing and an economical starting point to any canning or preserving project. Every Saturday throughout the growing season, Serendipity Farms opens its gates to home chefs, canners, kids and anyone else (but please no dogs in the field) who wants to grab a kid-sized basket or a 5-gallon bucket and pick fresh, perfectly ripe organic produce right off the vine. We grow different crops in different microclimates, so the location of the U-Pick stand depends on what’s ripening. At the height of the season several of the U-Picks below are happening at the same time. Look for signs on the road directing you to the farm.

Tour The Farm

 

As part of our mission to educate the public about the value of family farms and freshly grown food, we offer regular tours of the farm in spring and summer. Learn about the connection between healthy soil and healthy food, find out how we tune in to nature to keep weeds and pests away and see how we gather produce each day. Watch the Serendipity Farms Facebook page for dates.

 

We are currently working with Monterey Regional Parks to develop programs and solidify dates. Stay tuned.
