I thought the fresh fruit was priced a little over current market value, so I opted for dried fruit to take on our trip. It took us two weeks to finish them, so we were satisfied with the price at $6.95 each.

Many buses stop here as it is basically only place to stop along this stretch of highway heading to Yosemite. In exchange for 45-50 tourists being dumped her to use the toilet, they overprice ... well everything. The guide RAVED about the fruit, how it was "possibly picked this morning". I don't think so. Got an apricot and peach. Both... More

The items are way overpriced in relation to items of the same variety that can be purchased at the local supermarket.

This is a great place to stop in for a coffee or a small snack. There is also a fruit stand attached and a small gift shop with many wonderful items to purchase.

I had occasion to stop in for a fundraiser BBQ in the shady picnic area at the back of this place. I've lived here for 46 years and had never stopped in before. I had no idea what I was missing. There were 2 big busses of tourists from Italy there and it was a joy to be able to... More

Our tour bus stopped here on the way from San Francisco to Yosemite. Our tour guide had raved about it, and it is lovely to wander round, look at the animals and have a pit stop. The dried fruit is excellent, but I was disappointed with the fresh fruit we bought, which was variable in quality (blueberries very good, bananas... More

This place is great. Beautiful fees fruit, local honey, jams, almond butter,sandwiches, coffee,tea and sooo much more. Lots of parking for cars or tour buses. My recommendation is the fresh squeezed orange juice. It is to die for. In the back there are tables for a picnic or just stretching your legs and letting the kids or the pooch out... More

A standard but well done fruit and veg farm. Very well laid out inside with a good selection of produce. Has an added bonus in so much as there is a small child friendly area at the rear with various animals, turkey ducks llama etc etc.

Cute little stop with great gifts like flavored honey, jams, yard art, chocolate covered fruits and nuts. Most refrigerated produce is $2.49/lb. Apples at this price are expensive. Strawberries are already packaged and quite pricey. Deli with pasties and desserts. Recused birds and baby ducks were adorable.
