Underwood Family Farms
It’s one thing to pick up all of your fruits and vegetables at the farmer's markets. It's another thing entirely to pick your own fruits and vegetables directly on the farm. This working farm in Simi Valley is great for families or anyone who wants to feel closer to the earth.
What to Eat and Drink: The fruits or vegetables of your labor, of course. Everything is priced per pound, and there’s a handy harvest calendar so you know what’s good now. For instance, you can still pick blueberries, strawberries and raspberries, plus everything for your entire salad bowl — tomatoes, cucumbers, greens — this August. There’s also a market where you can grab and go. For family-friendly sandwiches, Custom Melt serves grilled cheeses nearby in Moorpark proper.
While You’re There: On the weekends, there are tractor rides and animal shows featuring some of the furry, feathered and four-legged friends living on the farm.
Transportation: A day on the farm is less than 50 miles away from Los Angeles proper, about a 60-minute drive.
