Great place to take the kids. There are animals they can feed, pony and hay rides. You can buy fresh fruits and veggies. They also have yummy roasted corn on the cob. Other than any shopping you do free.!

Really cute barn that sells fresh fruit and veggies. Inside the barn you can also purchase lettuce for $1 to feed the animals which the kids (and adults) love. There are also tractornamd pony rides and the roasted artichoke and corn is AMAZING!!

I absolutely love this place. The animals are adorable and the fruits and vegetables available for sale are absolutely delicious. What a fun place for adult and kids. When we went they also had baby goats (so cute).

They pick their fruit only after it has ripened so it is amazingly sweet and juicy. I buy our fruits and veggies here all summer long.

Avila Barn is only about 10 minutes from San Luis. It's just a quick drive away!
