The kids and I enjoyed tasting the different varieties of peaches, nectarines, plums, and pluots. We learned a lot about the picking process and loved selecting and picking our own fruit.
Interesting tour and a fun time. Thanks,
Did the fruit tasting at Andy's Orchard and it was great. Very well organized. There were about 80 different types of fruit to taste including peaches, plums, pluots, apricots, and some dried fruit. The we went out in small groups into the orchard where we went to several different types of trees to pick our fruit. The guide picked fruit from the trees we were at to give people tastes in case they missed them or forgot what they tasted like at the tasting part. I got to select a peach that I really liked from the earlier tasting and took a box of them home to make peach pies. Yummy,
Expected a lot more educational information not just pages printed on the desk.
Some information on the tour was very good but with so many people it was difficult to hear.
We were expecting to get information on how an Orchard starts and then grows and is taken care of.
Our tour guide was very informative knowing about the fruit and the impact of water, pesticides etc.
The tour and tasting was fabulous! I loved the vast and varied offerings of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots and the little "tasting" notes that accompanied them. Andy led our tour and he was a treasure, full of knowledge and passion, and generous with his time and experience. A wonderful gem of an experience!
very informative and the fruit is beyond good.
I was able to attend 4 Tours/Tastings ... the first one was with someone who had been before & was a great introduction, the second one I went on my own, the third one I attended with 3 other adults [many reflected on past experiences growing up and working in & around orchards], and the final one I attended with a local family who had visited your store, but never been on a tour/tasting ... I am impressed with the organization and knowledge shared ... when I was being checked in this final time, the nice woman said she recognized my face - how sweet ... Thank you for everything you do
More crowded than I expected. Impressed by how many varieties there were to taste.
This event was incredible and I can't wait to go again next year! I learned so much!
What a wonder experience and education. Nice to know about our local growers in his valley.
Andys Orchard is such a gem. Everyone who lives in the Bay Area should come to understand the heritage of this area, and more importantly, to taste the heritage of this area. Taste it through the 20, 30, 40+ varieties of heirloom peaches, plums, apricots, pluots, etc. that they keep alive at this orchard. This is the opposite of a commercial megafarm type orchard where they would have row and row of the same variety. At Andys orchard, each row of trees is a new adventure. The place is magic.
Fun and informational. You can tell everyone who works at Andy's orchard loves what they do and are excited to share it. Will definitely be back .
I loved the fruit and farm!
The tasting & tours at Andy's are well organized and such a nice treat! The price is reasonable, and we really enjoy trying all the different varieties of fruits that you can't find in the grocery store. Thanks for hosting the public at these events!
