Chino Farm



Has a stand.

And it looks pretty much like any other farm stand.

Except that it is in Rancho Sante Fe, one of the highest income communities in the United States.


No prices are listed. 

And you know what they say, “If you have to ask how much it costs….”


Each vegetable and piece of fruit is presented in all its pristine glory.

I almost bought a basket of baby Brussels sprouts.

Entranced by their miniature green cuteness, forgetting momentarily that I detest Brussels sprouts.
  


And the taste, well that is why so many high-end restaurants feature their produce and why so many locals make the drive, for a perfect tomato or the sweetest strawberry.

Easy to get to, just off I-5, exit Villa de la Valle, go east for a ways and then turn right on Calzada Del Bosque and drive past the crops. The stand will be on your right.
