Owner description: Open May 15th to Dec 31st (Except a few holidays) Delicious tree-ripened stone fruit grown by Andy Mariani. All fruits & vegetables are seasonal & local. We also have dried fruit, jams, nuts, confections, custom gift baskets, and gourmet food items. We've expanded into select cheeses, olive oils & vinegars, to mention a few. And books of Santa Clara County's agricultural history, cookbooks, and assortment of Andy's Orchard hats, aprons, and T-shirts. Step back in time, and visit our Fruit Stand and little Country Store.

Andy's Orchard, while open all year long selling fresh fruits and vegetables of the season, dried fruits, fruit candy and delicous preserves made from his fruits, Andy's comes alive in the summer with their Fruit Tasting and Orchard and harvest walks. For a small fee, participants can taste the many, MANY varities of cherries, apricots, peaches and nectarines. Then you are escorted to the orchards in search of the perfect fruit to pick yourself paying for what you pick. Fruit never tastes as good as when it is picked ripe from the tree.

Another new surprise in 2011 was the introduction of Fruitful Jams made almost exclusively from Andy's fruit. Some of the surprise preserve offerings are from the rarest of the orchard, perhaps a single tree, of a single variety that produces the sweetest, most unusual apricot or peach or nectarine.

Tours only happen a few times a year so when they do, it's real busy at the orchard. Good for adults, children over 5, but not stroller bound children. It's something to try out once and say you've done it. Wear a hat and sneakers, you'll get all dusty and dirty out in the orchard.
