Our orchard is part of this year's Placer Farm and Barn Open House. We are one of 14 sites that will be open on Sunday, Oct. 14th with tours and activities to celebrate the county's agricultural heritage. At our orchard from 10-5 we'll have fruit tasting and demonstrations on how to make hoshigaki and vodka persimmons. Visitors will be able to see our horse and chickens as well as a mini-donkey named Alice and a mini-mule named Coco. There will be a straw bale maze for kids to play on and a pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin. The fruit stand will be open and people can go on tours of the orchard.
