The Underwood Family Farms is a grower of a wide variety of fresh vegetable and fruits in Ventura County, California. They offer a wide variety of services and activities tailored for the entire family including pick-your-own produce, birthday parties at their Farm Animal Center, school tours, gift baskets (shipped anywhere in the United States,) and the Fall Harvest Festival in October.
Every day, the mission of their team is to cultivate a relationship between the customer and the farm. They do that through direct marketing of high quality produce and positive farm experiences while adhering to the highest standards of ethics and integrity.
They encourage their visitors to ask questions and give them their feedback. A frequent question is “are we organic?” On their farm, they practice a method of farming called sustainable agriculture. Using integrated pest management, compost and minimal pesticides, they are committed to growing healthy and flavorful product while also using the best farming practices.
You can visit them at either of their Farm Markets, located in Somis or our location in Moorpark, where you can purchase their field-fresh produce and say “hi” to their farm animals. You may also visit them at one of the 16 Certified Farmers’ Markets that they participate in throughout the week.
