Connect With Nature


Nine Meals Away from Anarchy - As oil prices peak and we approach the end of the age of cheap food, now is the time for city-dwellers to reclaim urban areas for agriculture. Go to a farm nearby for ideas on what to grow in your own backyard. Be sure to check with each farm to see what is in season. Bring your family or friends and have a fun day at a farm.

Underwood Family Farms is a 40-acre working farm in Moorpark, California. They grow fresh vegetables and fruits and sell them at Underwood farm store and certified farmers markets throughout Southern California. 

The Moorpark location offers year round U-pick seasonal fruits and veggies. Admission to the Farm Center, including the u-pick area, is $3.00 Monday through Friday and $5.00 on the weekends. 

Weekend admission includes a tractor-drawn wagon ride around the farm and to the Pick Your Own fields. The Farm Center is open from 9:00am to 6:00pm 7 days a week March - November and on weekends in December. Most picked items are priced by the pound.

If you don't want to pick your own you can buy them from the farm produce stand. The farm asks you to bring your own clippers for pick-your-own crops and dress for farming. There is also a small petting zoo where you can up close to farm animals or ride a pony.
