“Fun place to visit with the kids”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

Cute little store and lots of kid activities. Check their calendar. Kids like to visit and participate in simple farm activities and puppet shows.

“Great side trip”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

A very nice fruit stand, gift shop, and small animal viewing area. The Farm is a perfect stop for kids to stretch and see a very active and beautiful farm in the Salinas Valley. The gift shop manager has done an excellent job of selection as there are truly unique offerings there.

The weekend brings pies to the stand!

“Amazing produce”
Reviewed 30 July 2010

If you are anywhere in the Monterey area, and you are a fan of vegetables and fruit, you MUST stop by this place. The employee on duty when we stopped by was incredibly friendly, informative, and enthusiastic. He let us sample the best strawberries, sugar snaps, and corn we've ever eaten in our lives-- and I grew up on a farm. The produce is gorgeous and delicious, picked fresh every morning. There are all sorts of programs for children. I only wish that we lived close enough to take advantage of this place.

“Excellent Stop!”
Reviewed 1 March 2007

If you're visiting Monterey County, The Farm makes for an excellent stop. It's right out in the fields of the Salinas Valley and offers a variety of fresh organic vegetables, tours, animals and gifts. Very pleasant staff. My family particularly appreciated being on a working farm and having the kids see that vegetables grow in the ground, and don't just magically appear in plastic bags in the supermarket.
