The owners are first-generation farmers -- they purchased the 54-acre farm 13 years ago, thus saving it from development. Now, instead of condos, there are fall weekend barbecues, a cafe with apple cider donuts, a corn maze, pony rides, and PYO nectarines, plums, pears, peaches, grapes, tomatoes, eggplant, pumpkins, and apples!
