Family Farm Walk at Farm Discovery

Farm Discovery at Live Earth
City: Watsonville, CA

Now available seven days a week at Farm Discovery!

Our Family Farm Walks provide your family a place and time to experience nature, to smell, see, taste, touch, and hear all of the organic farm and what its wild places have to offer. In this way, we will set the stage for our children to develop their own healthy relationships with nature, food and exercise.

The $30 admission donation gives you semi-private access to the upper farm and will help our nonprofit organization weather the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis. Additional funds gifted will support our produce donation program to vulnerable families in our community or our farm care program for working families.

Along the tour route you will find:

  • hilly paths to walk, run and skip along
  • chicks and laying hens
  • Pygmy goats
  • a swaled hillside featuring citrus, grapes, pineapple guava and a frog pond (our favorite place on the farm for 5 senses exploration and hide and seek)
  • a pony corral
  • a cow named Bella and her friend, a pig named Lucky
  • Discovery and permaculture gardens
  • a beautiful picnic platform with a view

Usually, we encourage folks to pick seasonal fruits and vegetables along the way. In order to ensure health and safety, we will provide instructions about enjoying seasonal opportunities on your walk as conditions evolve. *Please be sure to check in with the on-site staff on weekends. They will provide additional information if necessary.

Cost is $30 per family, please email education@farmdiscovery.org if your family needs a scholarship.

What to Bring:

  • Water/ water bottles (there is plenty of potable water around the farm for refills)
  • Close-toed shoes
  • Hats
  • Sunscreen
  • Weather appropriate clothing
  • Baby carrier/stroller

Farms are dynamic places. Some of these features will be at their best during certain times of year. Visit us often to watch the changes.

We can provide a full refund or reschedule your visit up to 7 days before your visit.
