Private farm tours of Love Apple Farms in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. Witness over 200 cultivars of fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers grown exclusively for David Kinch's fabulous Manresa restaurant of Los Gatos. Our micro farm is an example of fine-tuned edible production that serves as an example for backyard gardeners everywhere. You will meander through the gardens, being led by a master farmer familiar with the care and culture of both the flora and fauna. Wonder at some of our specialized oddities: Lychee tomatoes, Ficoide Glaciale, Dragon's Egg cucumber, rattlesnake beans or Stevia, among many others. Taste, sample, and ask questions during this hour-long walk. Public restroom facilities. Photography allowed. Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. This is a hilly, yet gorgeous, terraced garden.
