Mike is a third generation farmer with a knack for storytelling. Both of Nori's grandparents were small family farmers, so she spent a lot of time on the farm growing up. Mike and Nori took over the Naylor farm in 1979 and converted to organic practices in 1984. They first opened their farm stay in 2011.
Mission statement – It has become increasingly rare for people to have the experience of visiting a working farm, much less living on one. We wanted to give people the opportunity to tour and/or stay on our farm. Our passion is educating the general public about what it's like to run a small organic farm in California. We love to answer questions about what we do and how we do it.
Farm stay policies - We are a working farm, so we expect all our guests to abide by food safety rules and written and oral guidelines for the farm. All adult guests must sign a permission/waiver form when they arrive. There is no smoking allowed anywhere on the property.
What to expect - We grow over 30 different varieties of stone fruit (apricots, nectarines, peaches, & plums) as well as blackberries. Fruit is available for picking late May through September. We do not grow vegetables or have farm animals. We are not able to have people work on our farm due to the expense of insurance. Visitors may pick fruit for eating or home preservation. You can't get fresher than that!
Don't hesitate to call with any questions about our farm stay, farm tours or U-pick season.
We hope to see you soon.
