  • We love the barn! It's fun for kids to see and feed the animals. Hayrides and fruit picking are great. The baked goods are really good! We love the pies especially. They have nice seasonal stuff too like a hay maze in October and a free Santa in December. You don't have to pay to go and see the animals and the hay ride is cheap ($1).
  • Our group had children from 3 to 17 years old and they all had a good time. Ice cream is pretty good, but not remarkable. Pies and small packaged good were priced pretty high. Even with free admission, be prepared to spend a little money during your visit.
  • This place is fun for families. They have a great staff in all areas if the farm. There is a petting zoo, a farmers market with fresh produce, baked goods, and all sorts of little items like aprons, cook books, fresh lavender, etc . Has a great "little country store" ambiance. There is also another part that sells ice cream and tots and nostalgic candy items and small games for children.
  • We always have so much fun when we visit Avila Valley Barn. My girls love to feed the animals while we chow down on some street corn. They offer ice cream, fudge, and yummy sammiches. The market has a good variety of fresh produce as well as AMAZING pies. (Strawberry rhubarb)
  • This is a perfect stop for us on the way from the Bay Area to Santa Barbara. The kids love to feed the animals (with lettuce from the awesome farm stand), and then lunch or an ice cream cone! Last time we were there they had a newborn kid!
