Visit Farm




 

  

We passionately believe that in order to strengthen sustainable agriculture in California, we need to increase the connection between people and their food.

Frog Hollow Farm is a very diverse certified organic operation, with 140 acres in production. We want people to have an education experience while visiting our farm operation. While most known for our stone fruit, we harvest fruit 8 months of the year, including citrus, apples, pears, pomegranates and cherries. We also have a two-acre vegetable operation, growing a wide array of summer and winter vegetables and perennial herbs. Our vegetable garden is also home to our family of chickens.

Frog Hollow Farm offers two types of interactive tours (field trips for students and farm visits for adultsof our our orchards followed by a hands on workshop or activity of your choice. 

Farm visit duration: 1.5-2.5 hours

Farm visits can be booked on FRIDAYS only.

Farm visits involve two parts, an orchard tour and hands on activity.

Due to our busy schedule, we can only accommodate tour groups of 8-30 attendees
