Tanaka Farms – Irvine, CA

(Last Updated On: March 9, 2011)

Tanaka Farms 1 In my area of Michigan, there are u-pick farms a plenty. But in Orange County, California they are a little harder to come by. On a recent visit there, I check to see if there were u-pick farms or farm stands I could go to. The only one I found close enough by was Tanaka Farms in Irvine, California. When I was there in mid-Febrarury, they had their farm stand open, along with a section of u-pick strawberries. The strawberries were all in containers in front of the farm stand. This should make it easier for people to pick them.

Tanaka Farms 2 In March, they start their strawberry tours. This includes a tour of the farm and a chance to pick some berries. They also have the same thing for watermelons and pumpkins. First farm I have that has a watermelon operation like that. They also have a CSA program. You pay either $20 or $30 a week and receive a box full of produce. They have a blog, telling you what you might be getting each week.
