The Research Center and Demonstration Orchard maintain test plots, orchards and vineyards. We provide information on fruit trees, grape vines, hops, herbs, and garden vegetables, as well as palms and native plants. We plant and collect data on these crops and then can pass the information onto the backyard farmer. We are open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon for walk-ins, curbside pickup or tours. Closed only on major holidays. Our many varieties of table and wine grapes are in the process of changing color, the transition from berry growth to berry ripening. This process is called veraison.
Produce & Herbs: Curbside or walk-in available for plants, seeds, produce and fresh herbs. Ask to receive the weekly emails detailing what is available. FYI: We are NOT a “you pick it” facility.
Mulch: Mulch is not currently available. We are hoping it will be available by early August.
Native Plants: While we have these available in all sizes, it may not be the best time to put them into the ground during the summer!
Produce: Now being harvested: peaches, plums, pluots, cucumbers, hot & sweet peppers, and eggplant. Please note that we can not guarantee to have these products available when you visit the Orchard due to supply and demand.
