Join us for a field trip to Rutiz Family Farms in Arroyo Grande. We will be picking our own produce, then cleaning and preparing a healthy, delicious lunch for ourselves. You can’t get it fresher or tastier than that.

At Rutiz Family Farms, it isn’t just about growing fruits and vegetables, it’s about redefining a relationship between a community and the farmer. The farm stand, located adjacent to the farm’s thirty acres of beautiful land just outside of Arroyo Grande, allows for direct sales of farm products, harvested at their peak of ripeness and flavor.

Organic fertilizers, no pesticide use, and extensive green manure cropping enables the Rutiz family to grow healthy plants while building soil fertility. The Rutiz farm grows more than 50 varieties of hand-harvested crops ranging from sweet corn and tomatoes in the summer, to cool weather items like potatoes and lettuce in the winter.

The cost for this field trip is $22 and space is limited. You can reserve and pay for your spot by emailing Karen Petersen at karen@winehistoryproject.org, or CLICK HERE TO RSVP and pay online.

Location: 1075 The Pike, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420
