It's Olallieberry Season!
The good news - our berries are high quality, flavorful and sweet.
The bad news - our exceptionally dry winter has affected the quanity (but not the quality) of berries available. As a result our berry season will be short this year.
Jack Creek Farms is a small 5th generation family farm. Our farm is nestled in the coastal foothills of Central California 6 miles west of Templeton and Paso Robles. Our farm stand is located directly off of scenic Highway 46 West, in the heart of San Luis Obispo County wine country. We have RV and tour bus parking with easy highway access.
Folks who visit our farm are invited to take a few moments to reconnect with simpler times past. Stroll through our herb garden and antique farm equipment display. Depending upon the season, pick a sunflower, olallieberries or a basket of sun kissed vine ripe tomatoes. Discover long forgotten heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables enjoyed many generations ago. Try your hand at throwing a lasso and rope "Bailey" our mascot roping steer. Pump our old-fashioned water pump barrels or sit down in the shade and enjoy watching the numerous native birds that live on our farm. In the fall kids love our u-pick pumpkin patch. Sample apple cider slushees and pomegranate juice granitas. Browse our country store or visit with the farm animals. On weekends enjoy one of our freshly baked treats. We use our own free-range ranch eggs, honey, freshly ground whole wheat flour, apples, peaches, olallieberries, walnuts, pumpkins, etcetera, that are grown on our farm. The selection of baked goods changes with the seasons. If you like fudge, we make what we believe will be the best you have ever tasted.
The local beehives have been "a buzz" with activity, and we offer many different varieties of honey for sampling. Local varieties of raw, natural unfiltered honey include (depending upon the harvest and season) toyon, yellow star thistle, wildflower, wild buckwheat, apple blossom, pomegranate, orange blossom, coastal sage, black button sage, safflower, raspberry, cotton, avocado, comb honey and more!
It is amazing how honey can taste so different depending upon what the bees are pollinating. No infusions, flavors, syrups, or additives. Just 100% pure honey the way the bees made it in the hive. Tasting is free, and we are happy to share ideas and recipes for pairing and enjoying honey.
We use naturally grown farming methods and believe firmly in being good stewards of the land. We provide you with an opportunity to put a face on your farmer, and to learn where your food comes from.
We plant, tend, and harvest by hand which results in a high quality product. Summer produce is picked fresh daily and at its peak of ripeness. We are pleased to offer you fresh and wholesome foods, old-fashioned hospitality, and a true taste of country each time you stop by.
Check out the links to the left to learn about the many activities and products we have available from our farm's roadside stand. We host group tours which can include lunch or cider and cookies. Our tour focus changes with the seasons - Herbs & Veggies in the summer and Gourds & Pumpkins in the fall.
With your support we hope to continue to supply our visitors and community with fresh and wholesome fruits, vegetables, wheat berries, wheat flour, juice and baked goods.
By supporting small family farms, you have helped to not only preserve our rural character and cherished open space, you have also helped to preserve our family traditions and heritage. Best of all . . . take home a memory!
Thank you and see you soon!!!
