Strawberry U-Pick

An immersive, interactive farm experience
featuring educational programming
and a hands-on strawberry U-pick.

Our U-pick strawberry experience is more than a simple opportunity to pick and enjoy fruit in the field—
it invites us all to more deeply appreciate seasonality and the land that gives us life through story and exploration.

Upon arrival at our 28-acre Regenerative Organic Certified™ farm, U-pick guests will embark on a journey to discover the advocate within.  Field guide in hand, your family will stop at three magical stations, each touching on the theme “Somos Campesinos” (“we are farmers”).  We are all farmers – collectively, we farm food, community, art, and culture.

Once you’ve completed the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to venture into the fields and experience the bounty of the only Regenerative Organic™ strawberries available in Southern California. Families can feel at ease knowing that their children are safe to enjoy the ruby red abundance straight from the vine – free from chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
