About Corralitos Open Farm Tours
Welcome to year three of the Corralitos Open Farm Tours. Connecting farms with community is what we’re all about! We are partnering with the Live Oak Grange in Santa Cruz again this year. The Grange has a long history of supporting community agriculture and we are excited to continue collaborating with them in producing the tours. Welcome back to our six returning farms, Terra Sole Nursery, Prevedelli Farms, Lonely Mountain Farm, Live Earth Farm, New Natives Farm and Lakeside Organic Gardens. We have added four new farms to this years tour! We are pleased to have Thomas Farm, Blossoms Farm, Dos Aguilas olive grove and Whiskey Hill Farm all participating as our farm tour community continues to grow.
We are so excited to have Alladin Nursery hosting this year’s Market Place! Alladin Nursery has been a prominent fixture in the Corralitos Community since it’s inception in 1919. Gustavo Beyer realized his dream when he purchased the business in 2005.
Stop by for lunch, watch a food preservation demo, listen to some live music and sample lots of food products in a market environment that the whole family will enjoy! Click on the “Events” tab in the menu bar above for a complete schedule of the days events.
Farms, Food & Families
The Corralitos Community is an area of nine square miles and approximately 2490 people. Officially, it is part of the Pajaro Valley,the “Heart of the Monterey Bay”. Pajaro Valley counts over 50,000 residents and stretches from Aptos/Rio Del Mar to Prunedale/Castroville. It encompasses some of the most fertile and productive farm land in the world. Over 90% of the people living in Corralitos make their living in some form of farming. Farms and Food are the bloodline of Corralitos. From the iconic Corralitos Meat Market to the thousands of acres producing fruit and veggies to the Sunday Corralitos Farmers Market – community in Corralitos is farm-centered.
