Every Season we celebrate our favorite ingredients growing on the farm. But we aren’t your average farm, we like to go deeper and explore the history, cultural, and agricultural heritage of our crops to connect our community to the source of their food in a deep and meaningful way.

This Spring season, we are celebrating the Strawberry! We are creating multi-sensorial installations that connect people and spread joy– incorporating storytelling and interactive experiences that are vehicles for imaginative wonder, and a powerful force to bring people together.

This isn’t your traditional U-Pick, here you will take an intentional educational journey onto our farm and discover the magic of spring and the strawberry, find interactive art installations, explore new discoveries of flavor and excitement, meet our new farm animals, and of course, end with a strawberry U-PICK!

TASTE will be Every Saturday and Sunday beginning on May 2nd and ending on June 7th. Join us on the farm to explore with childlike wonder and discover with surprise and delight through art, creative interactive experiences, and so much more.

We are not your ordinary farm! Prepare for the extraordinary. There are no limits to your experience! Let your imagination run wild!

More info:
Experiences start every 30 minutes. Please arrive 30 minutes early to allow ample time for parking and check-in. We only allow a set number of guests at a time for the experience, so you’ll have plenty of time to engage with all the installations.

Most guests spend about an hour or so out in the field journeying through the experience of surprise, delight, and wonder. TASTE is a guided experience for the majority of the journey and ends in a U-Pick. You will have plenty of time to explore all that The Ecology Center has to offer!
