A staple in the area along County Road 205, long serving residents of the Granja Basin, locals from Calaveras and tourists visiting the region. There are seasonal offerings here including more festive activities during the fall and winter when few fruits are growing in the orchard. Spring usually picks up when apricots and strawberries show up, this is the start of the u-pick-it season at the farm. Preserves are offered all year long from the shop, but bags of fruit are offered starting in spring as well, depending on growing season and what is in season.

Small but growing, there is a pumpkin patch near the fall fire pits as well as a corn field maze during the fall season.
