Earthbound Farms Farm Stand
I buy Earthbound Farm produce at the grocery store, but I hadn’t ever been to the Earthbound Farms Farm Stand before.
I eat their organic spinach, arugula and other greens often, so it seemed fitting that I should go to the source.
The farm began in the beautiful Carmel Valley.
Since they first started farming in the 1980’s, they’ve had a commitment to organic, earth-friendly farming practices.
They started with just 2 1/2 acres, but now have over 50,000.
The farm stand carried Earthbound products along with other produce and organic packaged food, drinks and gifts.
They also have a cafe with a soup and salad bar and made to order sandwiches, smoothies and juices.
The cafe is organic, just like their fresh produce.
I had a vegetarian grilled sandwich with a hummus spread, veggies and cheese. Dessert was a fresh baked sweet potato bread.
The property is beautiful. You can wander around the gardens and relax at one of their picnic tables.
If you’ve got energetic kids, this is a good place to stop for a break from driving.
I enjoyed my meal at a shady picnic table near a whole lot of blooming lavender plants.
The scent of the flowers along with the good meal made this a great place to stop before continuing my journey to Carmel by The Sea.
