Overview

Meet your farmers on a self-guided tour of 14 family owned farms in the Corralitos and Watsonville areas with tour hub and lunch at Alladin Nursery. All farms implement sustainable agriculture practices. Tour the farms at your own pace and learn what is involved in growing our food and how important sustainable farming methods are to the health of the Earth and our community. Our 14 participating farms this year are: Prevedelli Farm, Blue Heron Farm, Live Earth Farm, Terra Sole Nursery, New Natives Nursery, Blossoms Biodynamic Farm, Thomas Farm, Dos Aguilas Olive Grove, Nelson Family Farm, Luz Del Valle Farm, Monkey Flower Ranch, Fruitilicious Farm & Sol Seeker Farm. All farms are located within a 10-mile radius. Engage in family farming activities like apple juicing, olive curing and U-Picks just to name a few. Learn about the sustainable agriculture methods used to grow our food and spend a day outside getting to know our farming community and each other. Healthy food, farms and families are what we’re all about! Stop by beautiful Alladin Nursery for a delicious farm fresh lunch. We’re serving up a fantastic assortment of locally sourced food plus desserts, artisanal beverages, beer & wine. Listen to live music and enter our raffle to win prizes donated by the farms and our sponsors. Register online & download a map to attend the tours.
