“I took my wife to the “Mothers Day Luncheon” last Sunday and had the best day ever. The place was clean and very organized, offering the best but most unique experience ever. A very welcoming place and served the best Lunch ever with farm-fresh food raised and picked right there in the spacious fields that you get to see and explore. A very complete day in a healthy, safe environment. Just a wonderful day that I can’t say enough about. Well worth the money as it gave us a fun day which we will remember forever. Just one note: great Kale salad.” – Ken A., Buena Park
South Coast Farms Farmstand (Dana Pointe)
Having opened the same year as Tanaka Farms, South Coast Farms Farmstand has delighted its guests with its garden-fresh vegetable and fruit farmstand. Come on over from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm for the farmstand or Thursday to Sunday for the U-pick from 10 am to 4 pm for a spectacular time!
“Okay, can we just talk about their strawberries!? So sweet and delicious! Outs Whole Foods’ strawberries to shame – seriously!! I will never buy grocery store strawberries again. Love their little stand. They sell a variety of sizes for strawberries as well as other veggies. Also, love that they are grown without pesticides or chemicals. Their Instagram says they will be organic in November 2022. I plan to attend their U-pick with my daughter as well. So happy I found them.” – Ariana M., Newport Beach
