2012 Tomato U-Picks

Heirloom Tomatoes

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

Cost: $0.75 per pound for all tomatoes, including heirloom varieties, AND dry-farmed early girl tomatoes now, too. All the same price.

Varieties: Heirlooms, Early Girls, Momotaro, Monica, and Beefsteak tomatoes.

What to Bring: Bring shallow boxes and crates (not too deep or your tomatoes will squish each other!), water to drink, and a hat because it can get hot. We will have some cardboard boxes for sale, but you’re encouraged to bring your own. Bring the whole family – it’s a great way to show your kids where some of their food is grown. This is a working farm so please do monitor your kids activities, particularly while harvesting.

Location: These u-picks will be at fields accessed via our San Felipe Road entrance. Take 101 to Highway 25. Go East on 25 towards Hollister until the intersection with Shore Road. Make a Left on Shore Road. Head north on Shore Road to the intersection with San Felipe Road. Make a Left on San Felipe Road and go a mile or so. The entrance to the farm will be on your left just after a beautiful old two-story Victorian home which is located at 7210 San Felipe Road. We’ll have a sign posted. Please do not go in the yard of the Victorian. The farm entrance is just after the home. Please drive very very slowly on the dirt driveway to help keep down dust and also to protect your car from holes in the road.

Dogs are great, but please don’t bring yours to the u-pick day. Children sometimes feel threatened by dogs and I don’t want to be responsible if someone’s dog gets into a fight with someone else’s dog. Also, dogs can do a lot of damage in the fields, and the sight of a dog peeing on a tomato plant doesn’t do our sales any favors.
