Love Apple Farms is open to the general public on the weekends from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Additionally, we offer private, docent-led tours of our farm in Santa Cruz, California. Witness over 200 cultivars of fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers grown exclusively for David Kinch's fabulous Manresa restaurant of Los Gatos. We also have dairy goats and a large chicken flock. Our micro farm is an example of fine-tuned edible production that serves as an example for kitchen gardeners everywhere.
You will meander through the vegetable beds, being led by a master farmer familiar with the care and culture of both the flora and fauna alive and abundant at our Santa Cruz site. Wonder at some of our specialized oddities: Ruby Streaks Mustard, Malabar Spinach, Stevia, Flowering Buckwheat, Ficoide Glaciale, Vietnamese Coriander, and Litchi Tomatoes.
Taste, sample, and ask questions during this hour-long walk.
Adults: $18 each, Children under 12: $9 each (note that you will have to purchase Adult and Child admissions separately)
