Overview

We have been in the Avocado business for over 16 years and we feel happy to open our farm to the public so everybody can learn more about this farm-to-table heavenly fruit and the creation of the the famous guacamole and other dishes. When visit our farm, you will learn the history, cultivation and distribution of hass avocado in our plantation. Starting with a walk through the nursery, then the tree formation, continuing with the transfer to a larger pot. And finally an avocado tasting at the end! The tour ends with 15 spare minutes for your enjoyment around the coffee-garden and the mountain view. 🥑 Smoothie included!
