Underwood Family Farms' Pick-Your-Own Fields are now open daily for Spring with seasonal fruit and vegetables available. Your kids would abseloutely love going to the fields and pick fresh strawberries, oranges, mandarins and so many other fruits and vegetables. It's a great way to spend a day outdoors!
Tractor rides to the fields are available to take you to the fields, and are included with admission. Once you get to the fields, the fun begins. You can either take your own bags or pick up bags and containers at the farm. There are signs that direct you as which crops are ready to be picked. You can sample the crops (but it is requested that you do not make a meal out of them).
From your two year old to the adults, you will have a blast walking through the fields and pick up what is available in the each season. For a complete calendar of crops and their months of availability, check out the Crop Calendar.
For your convenience, the farm has a number of pull-wagons to transport your "prize pickings" and/or children from the field to the Farm Market area. Most picked items are priced by the pound, but some are priced individually. There is no reservation required for pick-your-own.
Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark is a fully operational working farm. That means it could be dusty or even muddy and the summers can get quite hot. It is recommend that sensible shoes & appropriate clothing be worn, and that you take water to drink, and plenty of sunscreen. Refreshments are also always available for purchase at the Farm Market. And don't forget to take your own clippers for pick-your-own crops, if you are serious about picking.
Other than pick your own fruits and vegetables, there are so much to do at Underwood Family Farms. The Farm Animal Center has farm animal displays, pony rides, activities and games.
