On the coast of Half Moon Bay lies one of our “As Fresh as it Gets” farm partners, Andreotti Family Farm. Located at 800 Cabrillo Hwy North and family-owned since 1926, the farm primarily produced artichokes in the beginning but close to 100 years later, they now produce almost every winter vegetable you can imagine. Additionally, they offer their famous U-Pick Sunflower Field and Pumpkin Patch in the fall!

Since the peak season for sunflower picking is between September and October, there is plenty of time to experience these gorgeous sunflowers. The 2022 U-Pick Sunflower season will run from September 1, 2022 through October 31, 2022. In addition, with the fall season quickly approaching, Andreotti Family Farms has several other fun events planned for this cozy season. As always, their Pumpkin Patch will be open to the public in October and the sunflower field will be turned into a fun corn maze. You can reserve your tickets ahead of time.

It is recommended that visitors make reservations online beforehand to monitor the number of people coming onto the farm. Be sure you enter the date and time in order to avoid waiting in lines. You may also opt to bring your own cutters as the farm has a limited supply. 

Frank from Andreotti Family Farms would like to remind everyone: “We live here and are opening our backyard to visitors. We are working hard to make this accessible to everyone. Please be gracious and respectful. We look forward to seeing you!”
