Food Love Farm

The Food Love Farm gives visitors a glimpse into our natural world offering endless hours of exploration, food education, and good old-fashioned farm fun.

U-Pick 2023

Food Love Farm is open for U-pick veggies, herbs, and flowers this summer — we have been busy planting all sorts of fruits, vegetables, and flowers and are eager to share the farm’s bounty!

U-pick runs all season long on Tuesdays from 4-7pm starting June 6 and ending around the time of our first hard frost.

Bring your friends & family and harvest some delicious produce or beautiful flowers.
Cash, check, and CalFresh are all accepted.


Are you eager to get your hands dirty?
Learn about organic gardening? Spend time in the sun with new friends?

No experience is necessary, just a great attitude and an enjoyment of hard work.
We will be digging, weeding, planting, and more.

Volunteer days will be every Tuesday afternoon from 4 pm to 7 pm starting May 2nd and every other Saturday morning from 9 am to 12 pm starting May 14th.

For more information please email Farmer Bri or Farmer Olivia
