A Rare Opportunity For General Public To Tour The Area’s Bounty
Saturday, July 20, 2019
The Half Moon Bay Coastside Chamber of Commerce & Visitors’ Bureau presents their 28th Annual Farm + Fish + Flowers, on Saturday, July 20, 2019
Farm + Fish + Flowers offers the general public a once-a-year opportunity to visit the Half Moon Bay Coastside’s nurseries/greenhouses, historic sites, farms and even a working harbor. Many of these businesses are not ordinarily open to the public except during “Farm + Fish + Flowers” when they invite visitors for a behind the scenes tour of their facilities and operations.
There are a wide variety of experiences. The public will enjoy guided tours of flower gardens, organic herbs and field greens, a working dairy farm, grass-fed livestock, a historic house, organic vegetable farms, educational farms, Pillar Point Harbor, and much more. Host locations will share helpful tips for pruning and caring for flowers, others will share their key to an efficient operation and some will share their colorful and fascinating family history and how it shaped their businesses today.
Each tour package includes three different locations. Ticket holders drive themselves to each tour in their package for a one-hour guided tour. There are five different tour packages to choose from, and each package of three tours costs $35.
For those who want to make a weekend of it, there are 20 lodging facilities along the Half Moon Bay Coastside and a wonderful variety of restaurants. Tour Half Moon Bay and the coast, stroll along the beaches, enjoy hiking and biking trails, shop historic Main Street…the options are endless.
Advance ticket purchases are required for “Farm+Fish+Flowers,” as there is limited availability on each tour.
