valley center farm tour | farm fresh to you | southern california photographer

a couple months ago, i shared photos of my weekly produce delivery box from farm fresh to you and was excited when the company contacted me to take photos for their southern california farm tour in valley center.

we have a friend in carlsbad, so we drove down to the area for a weekend of fun and spent a lovely (hot!!) saturday at stehly farms. (the northern california people said it wasn’t hot, but for us socal pansies…it was hot, very hot. 😛 )

the host of the farm tour, stehly provides some of the produce you’ll find in a farm fresh to you box and is situated among some gorgeous examples of california farmland.

everyone representing both farm fresh to you and stehly farms was incredibly friendly, laid back, and knowledgeable.

i have a dream of working in the fields of a farm like this someday. (in reality i probably couldn’t handle it, but in a dream – i totally can.) maybe there’s some sort of “farm camp” out there i could do for a week? just enough to shatter my unrealistic dream. 🙂

there were blackberries (lots of them) and all visitors to the farm got to fill up a clamshell of them to take home.

oh, they were good. my clamshell-full went straight into my belly (no clamshell needed).there was live music, arts, crafts + bubbles, a tractor ride tour around the farm, a produce stand (from which we bought makings for dinner), a taco truck for lunch, and general farm-approved merriment.thaddeus answered (some very good) questions – he had good answers for them, too, and touched on some exciting changes ahead that will allow for more customization of our orders.

check out a few more pics from the day on the ffty facebook page.

i highly recommend making the trip down (or up) for the next farm tour and i also, as always, recommend trying out their delivery! check out their website or facebook page or feel free to contact me for details. nothing better than getting fresh, organic produce delivered conveniently to your doorstep.
