The Farm is a unique agricultural showcase. It consists of an agricultural education center, demonstration farm, produce stand and recreation destination. The Farm is designed to tell the story of contemporary farming amidst the majestic surroundings of California's Central Coast.
The Farm is located in the Salinas Valley in Monterey County, a two hour drive south of San Francisco. The Salinas Valley is one of the most fertile and productive agricultural regions in the world. This beautiful valley supplies the nation with a bountiful array of fresh produce, and is thus known as the salad bowl of the world.
At The Farm visitors can learn about real farming. By participating in a farm tour, one can meet with professional farmers to find out how our vegetables are produced. From planting to harvest, we are excited to share about agriculture with the public and our valued customers. The oversized art figures of farmers and farm workers illustrate how we grow food.
We offer a great variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and fresh-cut flowers at our produce stand. Much of our produce is grown on the premises and is certified organic. Our collection of typical farm animals is a source of amusement and pleasure for young and old.
Custom tours are available upon request and are tailored to your interest level. We have a calendar of special events throughout the year, as we celebrate harvests and holidays, offer educational lectures and cooking demonstrations, and provide families and children with wholesome recreation----all on The Farm!
The Farm is located in the heart of the Salinas Valley just west of Oldtown Salinas, 15 miles east of Monterey on Hwy 68 off the Spreckels Road Exit, 60 miles south of San Jose and 105 miles south of San Francisco.
