Description

What started as 40 acres of strawberries, subleased from Standford University in 1922, is today a 285-acre California Certified Organic farm, dishing out fine crops of corn, tomatoes, squash and much more. Webb Ranch is still a family enterprise, replete with bustling farmers market (open daily from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.) and family-friendly activities from pony rides to Halloween pumpkins to fresh-cut Christmas trees.

Summertime is U-Pick berry time at the ranch, with everything from raspberries to olallieberries on the menu depending on seasonality and availability. Picking days are Thursday through Sunday from 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. with a $3 admission for guests over five. Berries cost $4.50 per pound.

The farm is also home to gorgeous horses, and lessons, group rides, camps and boarding are also available.
