  • The pumpkin patch is very minimal. Not many to choose from and and not growing in the ground. Not the same feeling as in the past. Seeing the animals: cats, dogs, only the chickens. Whic...  more »
  • Summers Past Farms is a wonderful place to spend a day just relaxing in their gorgeous garden, browsing the two story gift shop which carries everything you ever wanted and an incredible soap shop! Oo...  more »
  • We have been there for several craft shows and they are excellent. Ideas are very unigue and lots of crafters. I have recommended it to several people. Don't miss the next one.  more »
  • My family loves this place! The coffee bar is amazing and the people are so nice! They have hand made soaps they make on site. The atmosphere is so calming, I highly recommend Summers Past Farms for anyone looking for a unique gift from the gift shop or just enjoying a relaxing chai tea on the patio!
  • My mom has brought me here since I was a baby. It's honestly been both our happy place forever. Whenever we're sad we come here and whenever we're happy we come here. The friendly people, staff and friends count as our family. Having a chai tea or a nice cup of coffee is so relaxing, surrounded by a beautiful garden and good vibes.
  • One of our favorite places in San Diego! They have a Barn Shoppe with cozy home & garden items & an aromatic Soap Shoppe with homemade body soap, lotion/oils, & more! There is also Green Bean Coffee Bar, with tasty drinks & a shaded structure to relax under. There is a nursery & herbal garden to purchase from, as well. A cat(sweet) & chickens also live there. In the fall, they have a corn maze & pumpkins to purchase & then, in the spring, a sunflower maze & tons of other blooms. They even offer classes on soap making, fairy garden designing, & more. A great place to go on a date, take your family, have a Bible study, take photos, & just get away from the craziness of life.
  • It's just beautiful here. There are flowers everywhere and there is a soap shop, a little gift shop, and a coffe and tea bar. This place also sells many plants, flowers and garden decorations. The coffee bar is amazing and the owners are so nice, you feel like family here. There are many events held here like soap making classes and garden classes and antique sales. In the spring and summer they have a bouncy house for the kids and avolleyball net. In the autumn they have a little pumpkin patch! This is a great place to come and relax or bring the family for a picnic, it is spacious, clean and friendly. Note that a lot of flowers are not in bloom in the winter so I suggest to visit in the mid spring of you really want to be wowed!
  • What was once a beautiful farm has gone downhill. It's been several years since I visited Summer's Past and I was so disappointed by how run down the place has become and by the lack of gardens. Once upon a time, Summer's Past had fields full of herbs and flowers, but no more. Still a pleasant place to visit for a cup of coffee and brief walk asking what remains of their gardens, but not much else.
