• The Oldest (Organic) Strawberry Farm in CA

    If you’re in need of a breather or slower pace of life, head down the coast to Swanton Farm.

    The melody of waves crashing along the cliffs and rush of winds swooshing through the car will draw you into

    cruise control. Pulling up to the farm, you’ll be greeted by a rusted yellow truck and baby blue shed with comfort food to

    appease all cravings. Creak the swinging door open, and you’ll find a colorful interior filled with antique decor, vintage

    games, homemade pies, vegan soup and all the other jams and berries you’d expect. Take a moment to sit and play

    “Over the Moon” or grab a basket and head to the fields to harvest your afternoon snack.

    Some people sit and linger, book in one hand and berry truffles in the other, but my favorite is to grab the goods and head

    down to Shark Fin Cove for a picnic. If you’re lucky, they’ll have the airstream out with fresh bread, honey, and cheese.

    Whichever you choose, don’t forget to pay at the table. You won’t find a cashier waiting around. They run on

    old-fashioned trust in humankind and let customers pay on their own when finished.

    There’s just something about a farm like this that transports you back in time. Close enough to civilization but far enough

    from the buzz of everyday life, Swanton Farm is a  go-to when I’m in need of fresh air and space.

    *Note: Swanton Farm has multiple properties. The location above is at 25 Swanton Rd, Davenport
