  • I could not believe that in a country like America, we still havefarm like this ๐Ÿ‘everything is organic. You might feel a little bit weird when smelling animal's ๐Ÿ’ฉ but that's a part of our life. The people who helped me in the farm were really helpful and friendly. The weather is still hot today but they started playing Christmas songs. After Thanksgiving weekend I would come back to see how they decorate the Christmas tree. A place to go every seasons ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  • I'm speaking just for the Pumpkin Patch.. And I went on a Wednesday so not everything was open.. Pros- Good location.. super close to the 405. TONS of pumpkins.. all different types, from tiny to HUGE. Really pretty, real farm! The tractor ride is a pro and a con.. It's good because of the location.. again, really pretty and really nice to see something other than concrete. However.. There wasn't too many when we went, no line for tractor ride but for some reason they crammed us all in the front trailer and left the back one empty. Pretty annoying. Cons- Pumpkin price was a little high (like most pumpkin patches) Petting zoo is a joke.. they only have sheep and goats and one llama/cage and it's super stinky.. more so than other petting zoos we've been to. Corn maze is a joke as well.. It's circles within each other, alternating entrances on each side. There's no way to get lost.. It's boring and a huge disappointment. Entrence fee- $2, petting zoo $3, tractor ride $5, corn maze $0 Overall- I won't be going back. Worth the extra 30 minutes to go to Bates Nut Farm.
  • Tanaka farms has a great variety of fruit and vegetable crops and offers a great program of themed tours depending on the season. You get to actually go out into the fields and taste food picked right off the vine or pulled right from the ground. Their u-pick tour is awesome because it's like produce shopping in the fields. Everything has a price per/lb that gets weighed and paid for at the end of the tour (which is free). Sweetest and crisp corn tastes amazing right off the stalk! I was eating it for days like a dessert treat.
  • We had a blast picking strawberries and trying fresh fruits and taking home fresh vegetables. The fresh strawberry lemonade was awesome too. They even offer a tractor tour of the entire farm if you are up for it.
  • We went to Tanaka Farms on Sunday, October 23 to pick out a pumpkin for our daughter's first Halloween. The farm has an extensive collection of all sorts of pumpkins and attractions for kids. It's all a bit pricy, but not absurd for the area. The single biggest problem - and the reason we will never return here - is that it took us 90 minutes to exit the parking lot. Yes, that's not a typo. Traffic getting into and out of Tanaka Farms was inexplicably ridiculous, as we simply sat in an endless line of cars while our daughter slept (the only thing that would have made it worse is it she had been screaming). I don't know if this is typical or if Tanaka Farms was overwhelmed with guests that day, but it was enough of a headache for us that we will never return. Any Tanaka Farms employees reading this may point out that there reportedly was someone giving birth in the parking lot that day, but my assessment of the traffic was that the labor situation - even if true - had little to no impact on traffic flow. So, consider yourself warned - coming here on a weekend during a busy season could be an all-day, expensive proposition.
